    Watch: David Byrne Talks with PBS's 'Tell Me More with Kelly Corrigan'
    PBS

    David Byrne is the guest on the latest episode of PBS's Tell Me More with Kelly Corrigan. "Unique is almost always an overstatement," says Corrigan. "Not when it comes to David Byrne. Even if you crossed Andy Warhol with Kurt Vonnegut and added some Mr. Rogers, you still wouldn't quite capture his idiosyncratic magic. He has been creating weird, wonderful art with singular precision for fifty-some years." You can watch their conversation—about his childhood, his career in music, bringing American Utopia to Broadway, and more—here:

    Tickets are on sale now for David Byrne's American Utopia on Broadway at the St. James Theatre here. The cast album, available here, includes songs from his 2018 album, American Utopia, along with music from Talking Heads and Byrne’s solo career. Byrne shares the spotlight with a diverse ensemble of eleven musical artists from around the globe for an event that delivers "an experience unlike anything else," says Billboard. "Dazzling, rapturous and jubilant," exclaims the New York Times. "Astonishing," raves Hollywood Reporter. "A knockout celebration of music, dance and song. Pure bliss." Rolling Stone calls it "a tonic for our tumultuous times."
