David Byrne New Zealand reviews reveal a Talking Heads trip and more

David Byrne’s New Zealand shows are being written up as one of the greatest shows of 2018.

One review by Karl Puschmann of the New Zealand Herald put it simply …”this was a show”.

This will be Byrne’s fifth Australian tour of the 21st century. He was last in Australia in 2013 with St Vincent and before that toured in 2009, 2005 and 2002. Prior to that David Byrne’s first solo tour was 1992. With Talking Heads he made it down in 1984 and 1979.

This setlist is half Talking Heads, half solo and most of the solo centres on his recent album ‘American Utopian’.
