DAVID BYRNE

Saturday 17 November 2018

Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce that David Byrne – Talking Heads bandleader, solo artist, visual artist and author – will bring his American Utopia World Tour to New Zealand in November 2018.

The NYC-based artist will perform songs from his acclaimed new album American Utopiaas well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will join Byrne on stage for an Annie-B Parson choreographed concert that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.” Annie-B Parson also choreographed the  St. Vincent and David Byrne collaboration tour around Love This Giant. For NZ fans, it will be Byrne’s first tour of the country since 2009.

David Byrne is a Scottish-born American artist, and one of the defining names in modern music. The American Utopia World Tour is simply not to be missed.

Two-time GRAMMY-winning NZ songstress Kimbra will be joining David Byrne as special guest on the NZ leg of his acclaimed American Utopia tour. Described as a ‘…confident, self-actualised star and feminist pop warrior’ (Interview, 2018), Kimbra has recently released her highly praised third studio album, Primal Heart. The 12-track record won early praise from the likes of Interview Magazine, PAPER and NYLON, with Rolling Stone (USA) calling it one of “the most anticipated albums of 2018”.
