David Byrne is coming to Calgary.
The man who once helmed the ’80s and ’90s hit band Talking Heads has just announced the release of his album American Utopia, with the first track “Everybody’s Coming To My House” being made available to listeners.
To promote the new album, Bryne is going on a world tour with a 12-piece band, playing hits from American Utopia alongside songs from earlier in his solo career, and even a few from all the way back to his days with Talking Heads.
Byrne called the upcoming choreographed concerts “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for [the Talking Heads concert film] Stop Making Sense,” according to a release.
The tour will find Byrne in Calgary’s Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on May 21, just two days after a show at the venue’s twin building, Edmonton’s Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium.
Tickets for the Calgary concert are available starting Friday, January 19 at 10 am via Live Nation.
