David Byrne coming to Saenger Theatre

The American Utopia 2018 tour has added a stop in New Orleans.

On Monday, October 8, David Byrne will be at the Saenger Theatre to perform songs from his new album, which released March 9.

The album features classics from his solo career and his days with Talking Heads.

A twelve-piece band will also join Byrne on stage for a choreographed concert that he has called “the most ambitious show he has done” since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.

Earlier this year, 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.

“Everybody’s Coming To My House” is available to download instantly with pre-orders of American Utopia on iTunes and at nonesuch.com. Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive print facsimile of an early handwritten lyric sheet to the song.

Tickets for David Byrne will go on sale Friday, May 18th at 9 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

The box office, located at 1111 Canal St., is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees.  There will be no local presales for this date.
