David Byrne announces massive 80-date world tour in support of ‘American Utopia’

David Byrne today announced a massive, 80-date world tour in support of his forthcoming  album American Utopia, a trek that will keep him on the road from early March through the end of August, accompanied by a 12-piece band performing a choreographed concert that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for ‘Stop Making Sense.’”

The tour opens on March 3 in Red Bank, N.J., and includes spring dates in the U.S. and Canada along with appearances at Coachella, followed by shows in the U.K. and European festival dates during the summer, then a return to the U.S. for another leg that wraps up Aug. 28 at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

American Utopia is out March 9, and is preceded by the single “Everybody’s Coming to My House,” which you can hear now.
