David Byrne Live

Talking Heads frontman David Byrne kicked off the Australian leg of his acclaimed American Utopia World Tour last night at Sydney’s ICC Theatre to stupendous reviews. It is, as many fans attested on social media, a show filled with joy, pure and infectious.

Final tickets remain to tonight’s show at the Gold Coast Convention Centre and Adelaide’s AEC Theatre on Sunday 25 November, with both selling fast. Don’t delay in grabbing tickets!

Read what reviewers had to say:

‘If you don’t fall madly in love with a concert that opens with David Byrne holding a model brain, you’ve lost your mind… And every pop star needs to sit down and take notes.’ – The Daily Telegraph

‘There has always been far more to David Byrne than your average art-rock cult hero but, on this night, the erstwhile Talking Heads frontman surpassed expectations. This was about as complete a performance as you could hope for: musically, visually, conceptually.’ – ★★★★★ Sydney Morning Herald

‘Enthralling, meticulous and flawlessly executed – but most importantly, it was a joyous and gentle reminder to have fun.’ – Tone Deaf

‘This night’s opening act, Kimbra, told us David Byrne was a “game changer” and at 66-years-old, the former Talking Heads frontman went on to prove she was still right. Boasting choreography of a standard rarely seen outside ballet, Byrne’s show… was a tour de force where the tunes, ideas and enthusiasm never flagged.’
Australian Financial Review

‘This was a feast. A glorious, satisfying, lasting in the gut and cortex and fingertips, experience that peaked, and peaked again, and then came home with exultation in a breathlessly wonderful final half hour.’
Bernard Zuel

‘It was a party, it was a disco. It was one of the best shows of the year.’ NZ Herald

‘I am overwhelmed by the incredible display of musicianship, movement, and joy on stage. I love every moment of it.’ – Radio NZ

‘This was a show that looked and sounded like no other. It’s one fans will be talking about for some time to come.’ – Radio 13 (NZ)
