      David Byrne's American Utopia Tickets

      Talking Heads’ David Byrne returns to Broadway with his dazzling theatrical concert, which has become a global sensation.

      Byrne's theatrical concert returns to Broadway

      David Byrne’s haunting, lyrical show returns to New York, offering fans of the Talking Heads frontman a second chance to experience his landmark theatrical concert. 

      Taking inspiration from Byrne’s 2018 album of the same name and his extensive back catalogue, American Utopia features a diverse and eclectic team of 11 international artists including Jacquelene Acevedo, Karl Mansfield and Angie Swan. Having already dazzled audiences worldwide, the show returns to New York for a second round of rock music, theatrical choreography and political allegories. 

      Byrne is best-known as a member of Talking Heads, with his career also spanning work as a one-man musician and as the writer of Off-Broadway shows Here Lies Love (2013) and Joan of Arc: Into the Fire (2017). He counts Academy Awards, Grammys and Golden Globes to his name, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

      American Utopia is directed by Karl Mansfield (The Last Ship) and choreographed by Annie-B Parson, with lighting by Rob Sinclair. 

      Melding rock music with entrancing movement and theatrical flair, American Utopia tickets guarantee a truly singular live experience.
