8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 at The Theatre at Grand Prairie, 1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie, $54-$145 at axs.com.
If you missed the former Talking Heads frontman at the Winspear in April, here's your second chance. As big as Winspear is, the formerly named Verizon Theatre can hold more and should be easier for a larger crowd. On his American Utopia tour, Byrne will perform a number of solo and Talking Heads songs, all through an elaborate stage and light show. David Byrne works in his own lane, making performance art while still making listenable music. His vision has led him to create one of the finest shows people have seen this year. He's playing some of the most familiar Talking Heads songs here, from "Once in a Lifetime" to "Burning Down the House," so if your love of Byrne's work stops with the Heads, you've got a lifeline. He’s even playing a tune from his excellent collaboration with St. Vincent. Well worth your time to head out to Grand Prairie. Eric Grubbs
