Legendary Talking Heads frontman and solo artist David Byrne will be making his return to Australia and New Zealand this year,  bringing his American Utopia tour to fans this November.

Byrne is set to perform songs off his acclaimed 2018 album American Uptopia, as well as treat fans to classics and deep cuts from his spanning solo career and the Talking Heads’ vast back catalogue, including tracks like ‘Once In A Lifetime’, ‘Burning Down The House’ and ‘This Must Be The Place’.

In what’s set to be an epically theatrical show, joining him will be a 12-piece band with choreography from Annie-B Parson who describes the show as being  the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”

This will be Byrne’s first return to Australia since he teamed up with St Vincent for 2013‘s Love This Giant collaborative tour. He’ll also be making his way to New Zealand for the first time since 2009 for a run of shows in Wellington, Christchurch and Aukland.

Tickets for David Byrne’s Australian tour, spanning Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Adelaide will go on sale Monday, June 18.
