Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts has announced David Byrne will bring his American Utopia Tour to Orlando September 28, 2018.
David will be performing songs from his new album American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career, and his days with the Talking Heads. Performing with David will be a 12-piece “untethered” band. Also performing are special guests TUNE-YARDS
“We’ll be doing some new songs… and many others that will, I assume, be familiar. I’m excited. This is the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for ‘Stop Making Sense,’ so fingers crossed,” explains Byrne about the shows.
Byrne rose to fame as the founding member, principal songwriter, and lead singer and guitarist of the American new wave band Talking Heads from 1975 to 1991.
Their musical influence can be heard in the music of today, and their many singles, including “Once In A Lifetime,” “Psycho Killer,” and “Burning Down the House,” are still radio staples.
Since then, Byrne has released his own solo recordings and worked with various media including film, photography, opera, fiction and non-fiction. He has received Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe awards, and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
