Press Release – Mushroom Group
The upcoming Wellington, New Zealand show by David Byrne – Talking Heads bandleader, solo artist, visual artist and author – is now officially sold out.

The ‘Everybody’s Coming To My House’ singer makes his return to New Zealand and Australia in November 2018, bringing his acclaimed American Utopia World Tour down under. Tickets are on sale now via frontiertouring.com/davidbyrne.

Acclaim for Byrne’s stunning live performance – the Annie-B Parson choreographed concert he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense” – has been overwhelming, with UK reviews this month singing his praises:

‘The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time.’ – NME

‘Daringly ambitious and full of joy. So different, so memorable, so much fun.’ – The Evening Standard

‘A disarming performance that makes perfect sense. An entrancing show of extraordinary music. The show is incredibly ambitious.’ – The Guardian

‘The American Utopia tour is one of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see. It might have taken more than 30 years, but Byrne has somehow made Stop Making Sense look ordinary. Perfection.’ – The Independent

‘Byrne and his 11-piece band put on an unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre. Even for an icon like Byrne, this was something special.’ – The Daily Telegraph

The NYC-based artist will perform songs from his acclaimed new album American Utopia as well as classics from his solo career and Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will join Byrne on stage. Sets include Talking Heads tracks such as ‘Once In A Lifetime’, ‘Burning Down The House’, ‘This Must Be The Place’, plus Byrne’s collaboration with St Vincent and more.
