David Byrne’s American Utopia

Experienced David Byrne’s American Utopia show last night in Sacramento. Best show he’s led since Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense tour in the ‘80s and one of the Top 5 shows I’ve ever seen. All 12 musicians – including 6 percussionists – wore wireless instruments, freeing up the stage for choreography and lighting. No amps, no drum risers. A truly original combination of concert, performance art and dance. Leave it to David Byrne to lead the way again. We danced ecstatically to classics like “Burning Down the House” and “Once in a Lifetime” plus newer favorites. Words will ultimately fail to describe the astounding effects of this show.

Been waiting for this all my life really. 

Enthralling. Hugely entertaining. Just being US. 

One night in the lives of 9 gay men in 1968; really the stories of our lives over the last 50 years – presented by brilliantly talented gay men.  Very different people, bringing out all sides of themselves.

To be themselves today in 2018. Finally.
