David Byrne Performs ‘Burning Down The House’: Look + Listen

It’s the swan song month for American Utopia’s latest Broadway residency, and David Byrne and his cast appeared on CBS Mornings to perform on one of his most iconic Talking Heads titles.

Performing onstage at the St. James Theatre – where American Utopia is booked through April 3 – Byrne and his crew delivered a rendition of his 1983 classic and the legendary singer/songwriter also sat down with the morning show to discuss American Utopiaan Omicron outbreak in the cast, his rigorous six-shows-a-week schedule at the age of 69, and the unlikely actor Byrne sought advice from. 

“I met Hugh Jackman once, and I reached out to him because he is the only Broadway performer that I could remember who did a show where he sang every song,” “So I said, ‘Can I do this? What do I need to know?’ He said, ‘Don’t go hang out with your friends after… He also said on two-show days, don’t take a nap.”
