Former Talking Heads Frontman David Byrne to Perform at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica in August


Earlier this year, former Talking Heads singer David Byrne announced the dates for an extensive world tour in support of his forthcoming solo record, American Utopia.

Initially, the tour didn’t include a Cleveland stop. But earlier today, Byrne announced a new set of dates, and the tour will now stop at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica on Aug. 7.

For the tour, Byrne will perform songs from the new album as well as material from his solo career and from the time he spent with Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will join Byrne on stage for a "choreographed concert" that he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense.”

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
