Fresh from his triumphant performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2018, David Byrne, the brilliant Bill Nye of alternative rock, brings his "The American Utopia 2018" tour to the Saenger Theatre on Oct. 8.
Blending classic "Talking Heads" tunes with new compositions, the ever-inventive Byrne wowed Jazz Fest fans with a wireless free-range band that accompanied him, not just musically, but in captivatingly quirky choreography. His show was among the most memorable festival highlights. This is one not to miss.
