David Byrne's American Utopia

Posted on 2019-09-27

I saw David Byrne’s American Utopia perform in the Emerson Colonial Theatre in Boston, MA.

The Boston shows happened just before the show went to Broadway. I thought it was a very good show. It was a large-ish ensemble. And impressively, everything was wireless, which made choreography for the performers possible.

They performed more Talking Heads songs than I expected - for example, they did a version of Born Under Punches!!

By the way, if you haven’t seen it, you should watch this old video of Talking Heads perform that song: Born Under Punches in Rome, Italy (1980)!!.
