David Byrne announces American Utopia album and 80-city Tour

David Byrne has announced an 80-city tour to support his new album American Utopia, and if you think the Talking Heads legend is going to take it easy, think again!

Byrne has called the tour “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”

“I had an idea that everyone in the band might be mobile, so there would be no risers, drum platform or any of that stuff,” Byrne previously explained of the tour. “With everyone mobile, I realized the stage could be completely clear. If we could have the monitors in our ears, the amps off-stage and the lights up high, then we had the possibility of a completely empty space.”

See the full itinerary below and check out the epic tour poster, which was designed by Steve Powers. You can grab tickets via Stubhub. American Utopia, Byrne’s first solo album in 14 years, is out March 9th.
