David Byrne has announced a set of dates in support of his new solo album.

He will be performing a small number of preliminary shows on the East Coast USA and South America, as well as European festivals including Inmusic in Croatia and Roskilde, Denmark. The former Talking Heads frontman, said this is his “most ambitious show” since Talking Heads‘ Stop Making Sense.

I had an idea that everyone in the band might be mobile… so there would be no risers, drum platform or any of that stuff,” he explained. “With everyone mobile, I realized the stage could be completely clear. If we could have the monitors in our ears, the amps off-stage and the lights up high, then we had the possibility of a completely empty space.

There is no set date for the album release yet but Byrne said the shows will feature performances of his new songs as well as “many others that will, I assume, be familiar.”
