Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Byrne is bringing his world tour to Grand Rapids this year. Though best known as the founding member and front man of pivotal ‘80s band Talking Heads, Byrne’s solo act is not to be missed. The Scottish-American’s solo career began in the 1980s and is carried on by Byrne’s unique voice and instrumentation.
His upcoming album American Utiopia debuts on March 9th and is part of a larger multimedia project that encourages positivity. The album’s lead single, “Everybody’s Coming to My House”, was released on DavidByrne.com earlier this month. American Utopia is the follow-up to a record Byrne made with St. Vincent in 2012 titled Love This Giant.
On his website, Byrne calls the American Utopia World Tour “the most ambitious show” that he’s done since filming Stop Making Sense. To experience it fully, mark your calendars for August 8th when Byrne will perform live at DeVos Performance Hall in downtown GR.
