The NYC-based artist will perform songs from his acclaimed new album American Utopia as 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.

‘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

With his sets including a wealth of Talking Heads’ tracks such as ‘Once In A Lifetime’, ‘Burning Down The House’, ‘This Must Be The Place’, plus Byrne’s latest stunning new solo work, his collaboration with St Vincent and more, these shows will be unmissable.

Start time: Thu 7:00 pm
