SUFJAN STEVENS TOURS NORTH AMERICA

DATES INCLUDE NEW YORK’S BEACON THEATRE AND THE WILTERN IN LOS ANGELES

“There’s no one like [Stevens] in modern music.”—The Wall Street Journal

With planned performances at a number of large, elegant venues—including two nights at New York’s fabled Beacon Theatre and a night at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles—Sufjan Stevens is set to hit the road for an extensive North American tour in fall 2010. The performances will feature fully realized versions of the songs initially debuted during a late 2009 tour of small clubs in which Stevens workshopped several works-in-progress. “In his new songs,” The New York Times notes of one of Stevens’ fall 2009 Brooklyn performances, “love leads him to improvisation, chaos and spasms of rhythm, all precisely dolloped out.” Stevens will tour with his large ensemble performing alongside a full production including projections.

Sufjan Stevens has released eight studio recordings since 2000 including the critically acclaimed Michigan and Illinois (the latter named the “Best Album of the Decade” by Paste); a 5-EP Christmas box set; Enjoy Your Rabbit, an instrumental electronic song cycle based on the animals of the Chinese Zodiac; and the aforementioned The BQE. Run Rabbit Run, a recording of Enjoy Your Rabbit rearranged for the Osso String Quartet, was released in 2009 via Asthmatic Kitty. Stevens has also collaborated with The Danielson Famile, Rosie Thomas, Denison Witmer, My Brightest Diamond and many others.
