Talking Heads Frontman David Byrne Announces Australian Tour

Talking Heads Frontman David Byrne Announces Australian Tour

In support of his latest solo LP, American Utopia, music legend David Byrne will head to Australia this year for his first tour of the country since 2009. 

Kicking off in Sydney this November, the Talking Heads frontman will also perform shows in the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Adelaide. 

Fans can expect to hear tracks from the American Utopia record, as well as fan-favourite Talking Heads tracks alongside a 12-piece band for an Annie-B Parson choreographed-concert that Byrne has described as “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for [1984 concert film] Stop Making Sense“.

“I’ve made a record that just has my name on it but is also the result of the contributions of many other people,” Byrne said of his album.

“I suspect that like me, it is asking what are we like, what do we want, and what are we looking for?”

Tickets for the tour go on sale from midday local time on Monday 18 June; for more details, click on theGuide.
