David Byrne has announced additional dates on his American Utopia World Tour, including Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena, one of nine new arena gigs in the UK and Ireland in October and November.
Byrne will be performing songs from his critically acclaimed album American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads.
A twelve-piece band will also 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.
