David Byrne played Auditorium Theatre (pics)

David Byrne is currently in the midst of his visually striking, “untethered” American Utopia tour which hit Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre for three nights (June 1-3). The setlist has been pretty much the same since the start of the tour, with David and the 12 musicians in his band playing a mix of new songs from American Utopia, lots of Talking Heads material, plus older solo stuff, and songs from his records with St. Vincent and Fatboy Slim, plus a cover of Janelle Monae’s “Hell You Talmbout.” Setlist is below and pictures from the first Chicago show (6/1), which was with Benjamin Clementine, are in the gallery above.
