On August 10th 2018, David Byrne made a stop at The Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan on his American Utopia Tour. Benjamin Clementine opened the show who displayed poetic singing while playing piano.
‘American Utopia’ is also the name of Byrne’s latest album which was released in March of this year. The show started with Byrne sitting at a table on an empty stage with him holding a brain. Byrne has always been a peculiar person and this is what makes him so interesting to watch. Spanning several decades of success from being a solo artist to being with the Talking Heads, Byrne has tons of material to make anyone get up out of their seat and have a good time.
