David Byrne to Perform at The Smith Center in Las Vegas April 18
Danny Zelisko presents David Byrne at The Smith Center, Las Vegas Wednesday, April 18th at 7:30pm in support of his forthcoming solo record, American Utopia

David will perform songs from the new album, which is out March 9 via Todomundo/Nonesuch Records, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads. A twelve-piece band will also join David on stage for a choreographed concert that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”

All online ticket purchases for both US and EU shows will receive a CD of the new album.

Last week, Byrne announced the release of American Utopia during a presentation of “Reasons To Be Cheerful,” an ongoing series he curates of hopeful writings, photos, music, and lectures. The presentation was given at New York’s New School to a live audience and also was streamed via his Facebook page. He also released the first track from the album, Everybody’s Coming To My House— co-written with Brian Eno, featuring contributions from TTY, Happa, Isaiah Barr Leader of the Onyx Collective, Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Mercury Prize winner Sampha, and others. The song’s visual companion piece can be seen here:
