David Byrne Brings 'American Utopia' World Tour To Australia This November

Talking Heads bandleader, visual artist, solo artist and author David Byrne is touring Australia this November. He will be landing down under for a four-date jaunt kicking off at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. He will then wow audiences at Sydney's International Convention Centre and Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena with his amazing performances. The Adelaide Entertainment Centre will host the final show.

Right before the AU dates, Byrne will be winding up a trio of shows in New Zealand. He will be performing at the TSB Arena in Wellington, Horncastle Arena in Christchurch and Spark Arena in Auckland.

The 'American Utopia World Tour' will see the New York City-based artist playing songs from his acclaimed new album 'American Utopia' which was released in March via Todomundo/Nonesuch Records as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will join him 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'."

"One of the most inspired, intriguing, energetic and joyful concerts in recent memory. To call it unique hardly does it justice." - The Calgary Herald

"It’s honestly hard to believe the amazingness of David Byrne’s live show…Byrne radiates a joy while performing that few—if any—musicians can match." - Seattle Weekly

"Already the toast of Coachella, Byrne’s new road show was a knockout." - David Fricke, Rolling Stone

"Decades into his career, David Byrne remains an unpredictable, vital artist. There aren’t many who can say that." - LA Weekly

"A marvel of staging and motion that was at once utterly novel and oddly comforting, the evening proved a celebration of Byrne’s music at its most rhythmic and transcendent." - Chicago Tribune

Throughout his more than 40-year career, Byrne has released six solo albums, collaborated with Eno, St Vincent, Arcade Fire, Fat Boy Slim, De La Soul and more; won an Oscar; founded the Luaka Bop label; turned a ferry terminal into a musical instrument, designed bike racks, and published 2012 book 'How Music Works'. He is currently on the UK/European leg of the tour, having already taken his over 80-date world tour everywhere from Santiago to Tuscan, Saskatoon to Mexico City.

"A thought-provoking example of the power of live music." - forbes.com
