David Byrne Gives Incredible Performance of 'Burning Down the House' at Tony Awards 2020 - Watch!

David Byrne gave one of the most memorable performances of the night at the 2020 Tony Awards!

The 69-year-old singer, producer, and filmmaker took to the stage for a performance of “Burning Down the House” during the awards show held on Sunday (September 26) at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York City.

The song is from the Broadway musical American Utopia, which is based on the songs from David‘s 10th studio album of the same name.

During the awards show, American Utopia was presented with a Special Tony Award, which are given to shows that don’t fall into any of the competitive categories.

This marked David‘s first Tony award, and he is now only an Emmy award away from obtaining EGOT status!

American Utopia originally ran on Broadway from October 2019 to February 2020. The show was recently extended for a 17-week run lasting through March 2022. You can buy tickets here.
