Show Preview – David Byrne at the Fox August 16, 17

in Music News by

David Byrne, the founding member of American new wave band Talking Heads, is playing the Fox Theater in Oakland on August 16 & 17. The iconic singer that’s received Academy Award, Grammy, and Golden Globe awards, and has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be celebrating his latest album American Utopia, which dropped this past Spring. The record has already earned David his highest charting album ever, entering at No. 1 on the Top Current Album Chart and No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200.

To go along with the release, Byrne has also recently released American Utopia: Detroit, a video for “Everybody’s Coming to My House” off of American Utopia, which features a performance of the song by Detroit School of Arts (DSA) Vocal Jazz Ensemble students. You can watch the video below.

On this latest tour, David will be performing an assortment of songs from American Utopia, as well as classics from his solo career and his days with the Talking Heads. A twelve-piece band will also join Byrne on stage for an Annie-B Parson choreographed concert that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”
