Sufjan Stevens announced a tour today that’s taking him across the country this October and November with stops in New York City, Oakland, Boston, Philly and a few other major metros along the way. I’ve only gotten to catch his live show once in the past, but it literally left me in chills it was so good.

If you’re one of the few that have yet to discover his music, check out one of my favorite performances by Sufjan from his Austin City Limits appearance….

It’s just amazing stuff to me, and it’s the type of music I get excited to see in the mainstream. Read on for the full info from his label and info on the pre-sales.

Sufjan Stevens to Tour [Ashmatic Kitty]

Sufjan is going on tour in October! This should be quite a tour, as he personally structured this tour around some of the most historic theaters and venues in the country. He’ll start on October 12th in Montreal and move his way through the Midwest, to Texas, westerly, and then back through the Midwest and to New York.

Tomorrow, Tuesday August 10th, we begin selling special pre-sale tickets especially for fans. We negotiated the fairest price we could for tickets and Where we could, we also secured exclusive seating in each of the venues.

We expect these to sell out very quickly, and there are only a select number of pre-sale seats available. But do not fret; if for some reason you miss out on the pre-sale through Etix, you will have the opportunity to purchase the remaining tickets through the venues. Sales for some theaters will begin on Friday, August 13th, while others will start later. Please check with your local venue for their public on-sale date. To avoid scalping, there is a 4 person ticket limit, and the first 20 rows of seats are WILL CALL ONLY.

There are only a select number of pre-sale seats available at each venue. Tickets for these seats go on sale starting tomorrow, Tuesday August 10th, at 1pm EST. You can see details, dates, and (as of Tuesday 1pm EST) links to purchase tickets here:

Again, if you miss the pre-sale tickets don’t worry. These are large venues, and after the presale you’ll be able to pick up general admission tickets.

I’ll hope to get tickets for this tour right away; he’s an incredible musician and something to talk about when he performs live.
