Wellington Sold Out!
ALL OTHER SHOWS SELLING FAST

Due to popular demand, Frontier Touring can confirm that the upcoming Wellington, New Zealand show by David Byrne – Talking Heads bandleader, solo artist, visual artist and author – is now officially sold out.

The ‘Everybody’s Coming To My House’ singer makes his return to New Zealand and Australia in November 2018, bringing his acclaimed American Utopia World Tour down under. Tickets are on sale now via frontiertouring.com/davidbyrne.

Acclaim for Byrne’s stunning live performance – the Annie-B Parson choreographed concert he has called “the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense – has been overwhelming, with UK reviews this month singing his praises:

‘The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time.’ – NME

‘Daringly ambitious and full of joy. So different, so memorable, so much fun.’ – The Evening Standard

‘A disarming performance that makes perfect sense. An entrancing show of extraordinary music. The show is incredibly ambitious.’ – The Guardian

‘The American Utopia tour is one of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see. It might have taken more than 30 years, but Byrne has somehow made Stop Making Sense look ordinary. Perfection.’ – The Independent

‘Byrne and his 11-piece band put on an unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre. Even for an icon like Byrne, this was something special.’ – The Daily Telegraph

The NYC-based artist will perform songs from his acclaimed new album American Utopiaas well as classics from his solo career and Talking Heads. A 12-piece band will join Byrne on stage. Sets include Talking Heads tracks such as ‘Once In A Lifetime’, ‘Burning Down The House’, ‘This Must Be The Place’, plus Byrne’s collaboration with St Vincent and more.

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
