David Byrne has extended his North American tour in support of his upcoming new album, American Utopia

The new set of dates begins with a performance at the first week of Coachella, followed by an April 15th show in Tuscon, Arizona. Byrne will play a string of southwest dates before returning to Coachella for week two, after which he’ll trek across North America with stops in Dallas, San Antonio, Nashville, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Portland and Chicago before wrapping June 9th in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Byrne will tour Europe throughout June and July, but has another North American run scheduled to start July 27th in Camden, New Jersey and end August 28th in Morrison, Colorado. Complete ticket information for both legs of Byrne’s North American tour is available on the musician’s website.

Byrne is already scheduled to play a string of sold-out U.S. shows this March alongside several South American dates. When he announced this first run, Byrne said the set list would feature new songs and Talking Heads classics. “This is the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense, so fingers crossed,” the musician said.

American Utopia arrives March 9th and marks Byrne’s first solo album since 2004’s Grown Backwards. The musician previously shared the LP’s first single, “Everybody’s Coming to My House,” which was co-written with Brian Eno and features contributions from Sampha, TTY and Onyx Collective’s Isaiah Barr.
