David Byrne stages highly choreographed performance of “Everybody’s Coming to My House” with Stephen Colbert: Watch

on March 10, 2018, 12:17pm

Friday brought the release of David Byrne’s first new album in 14 years, American Utopia, which he’ll support by embarking on an expansive world tour. On Friday night, the former Talking Heads frontman previewed the forthcoming tour with a highly choreographed performance of “Everybody’s Coming to My House” on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“I had an idea that everyone in the band might be mobile… so there would be no risers, drum platform or any of that stuff,” Byrne previously explained of the tour. “With everyone mobile, I realized the stage could be completely clear. If we could have the monitors in our ears, the amps off-stage and the lights up high, then we had the possibility of a completely empty space.

Without the restrictions off cords, risers, and shoes (?), Byrne and his 12-piece backing band were free to move around Colbert’s studio as they pleased. At one point, they performed at Colbert’s desk and the late-night host sang along to the song. Watch the performance below.

In a nod to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense, Byrne also starred in a sketch as the owner of his own “giant suit emporium.”

Byrne’s supporting world tour runs until mid-September, including two newly announced dates in the New York City area. Check out the full itinerary below, and grab tickets here.
