This theatrical concert delivers “an experience unlike anything else” (Billboard) and marks a major cultural milestone in the worlds of music and theatre. Innovative pop/rock icon David Byrne (Talking Heads, Here Lies Love) shares the spotlight with an ensemble of 11 musical artists from around the globe. With staging and choreography by Annie-B Parson and with Alex Timbers serving as production consultant, David Byrne and the ensemble deliver “a marvel of staging and motion” (Chicago Tribune). “David Byrne’s American Utopia” features David Byrne with Jacquelene Acevedo, Gustavo Di Dalva, Daniel Freedman, Chris Giarmo, Tim Keiper, Tendayi Kuumba, Karl Mansfield, Mauro Refosco, Stéphane San Juan, Angie Swan and Bobby Wooten III.

American Utopia began as an album that David Byrne released on Nonesuch Records in March 2018.  The recording was his first to reach #1 on the Album Chart and was also his first to reach the Top Five on the Billboard 200 chart.

The theatrical concert, which includes songs from American Utopia along with songs from Talking Heads and Byrne’s solo career, played more than 150 dates in 27 countries over nine months in 2018, and was named “Best International Contemporary Concert” at Australia’s 2019 Helpmann Awards.
