A cornerstone of the alternative rock scene of the last four decades, the founder and leader of Talking Heads, a tireless experimenter in a number of different media and cultures: David Byrne is all these things and much more. He is among those who made history, and continues to make it, undauntedly pursuing an eclectic artistic career alternating avant-garde and popular music. American Utopia, his first solo album in 14 years, has been recently released. The massive world tour accompanying the album touches Ravenna with a very special show, almost sold out worldwide: energetic percussions and an ambitious stage design make it an occasion not to be missed.
