Sufjan Stevens announces theater tour: New album on the way?

08.09.10 8 years ago

Sufjan Stevens has announced a fall tour that takes him throughout North America starting Oct. 12 through Nov. 15. According to a release, Stevens “personally structured this tour around some of the most historic theaters and venues in the country” — which includes the Wiltern in L.A., the Beacon in New York and the Orpheum in Vancouver.

The singer-songwriter has been largely absent from the touring circuit, as he’s lately been more prone to promoting his film/music composition piece “BQE” in 2008/2009.

“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,” continues the statement, not mentioning if tracks from his best-known albums like “Illinois” or “Seven Swans” will also be included in the sets.

Last year, his record label Asthmatic Kitty released his latest “Run Rabbit Run,” a set of remixes from multiple composers, culled from his “Enjoy Your Rabbit” (originally released in 2001).
