A night with David Byrne
Unlike many of his generational coevals, the 66-year-old musical virtuoso continues to create sounds that rival modern-day artists. On his American Utopia tour, Byrne reinvents himself yet again with a show that is both stripped down and complex. There are no pyrotechnics and very few props: just a densely choreographed and truly democratic showcase for Byrne’s 12-piece band. With a set list split between new material and Talking Heads bangers, this is the kind of concert that comes—wait for it—once in a lifetime. Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4. $83–$349. Sony Centre for Performing Arts.
