David Byrne

Presented by the Bardavon

David Byrne will be performing with a 12-piece untethered band. “We’ll be doing some new songs… and many others that will, I assume, be familiar. I’m excited. This is the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for ‘Stop Making Sense,’ so fingers crossed.” -David Byrne

Byrne’s work with Talking Heads (Burning Down the House, Life During Wartime, Psycho Killer, Road to Nowhere, etc.) pioneered new wave music and opened the constraints of music genres for generations to come, making Talking Heads one of the most influential bands in history. After Talking Heads, David Byrne’s solo career flourished, recording ten solo albums, two of which in collaboration with Brian Eno, publishing nine books, both fiction and non-fiction, and working on several live concert films and feature film soundtracks. David Byrne is the epitome of the creative forces and artistic relevance of contemporary music and an indispensable rock legend not to be missed in live performance.

Recent works from his multi-disciplinary repertoire include Joan of Arc: Into the Fire, a theatrical exploration of the historical heroine, which premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2017); The Institute Presents: NEUROSOCIETY, a series of interactive environments, created in conjunction with PACE Arts + Technology, that question human perception and bias (2016); and Contemporary Color, an event inspired by the American folk tradition of color guard and performed at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre (2015).

Here Lies Love, which premiered at The Public Theater in New York (2013), is a 22-song theatrical production about the life of Imelda Marcos, authored in collaboration with Fatboy Slim. The show later traveled to London’s National Theater for a sold-out run (2014-2015) and was remounted at the Seattle Repertory Theater (2017). Additional successes in his amazing body of work include Love This Giant, a studio album and worldwide tour created with St. Vincent (2012); and How Music Works, a book about the history, experience, and social aspects of music (2012).
