Sufjan Stevens Announces Tour

It’s been a long 5 years since Sufjan’s last “50 States” project album and almost as long since he’s had a proper national tour. He teased us with his The BQE project last September and some new material that showed up online after a live show in Ithaca, NY. Then there was news this Spring that he was working a new LP that would feature  The National. Basically, the president was about to declare a national emergency due to all the fan boy drool flooding the streets of our nation.

Today, Asthmatic Kitty announced that Sufjan will start a nation-wide tour this October (even swinging by on a couple dates to visit our neighbors to the north). He’ll be stopping in Atlanta at The Tabernacle on Saturday, November 6th (pre-sale tickets cost $30).

Pre-sale tickets will be available on Tuesday, August 10th via Asthmatic Kitty’s website. Then you can purchase them through the venues starting on Friday, August 13th.
