AEG Presents is thrilled to announce DAVID BYRNE live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre Tuesday August 28, 2018.
On January 16 David Byrne announced an extensive world tour in support of his forthcoming solo record, "American Utopia." David will perform songs from the new album, which is out March 9 via Todomundo/Nonesuch Records, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A twelve-piece band will also join David on stage for a choreographed concert that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”
All online ticket purchases for both US and EU shows will receive a CD of the new album.
Last week, Byrne announced the release of "American Utopia" during a presentation of “Reasons To Be Cheerful,” an ongoing series he curates of hopeful writings, photos, music and lectures. The presentation was given at New York’s New School to a live audience and also was streamed via his Facebook page. He also released the first track from the album, “Everybody’s Coming To My House”— co-written with Brian Eno, featuring contributions from TTY, Happa, Isaiah Barr Leader of the Onyx Collective, Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Mercury Prize winner Sampha, and others. The song’s visual companion piece can be seen here. “Everybody’s Coming To My House” is available to download instantly with pre-orders of "American Utopia" on iTunes and at nonesuch.com. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive print facsimile of an early handwritten lyric sheet to the song.
