Sufjan Stevens Announces Christmas Tour

Sufjan Stevens has announced a cross country tour in support of his upcoming Christmas album “Silver & Gold.” The Christmas tour will hit 24 cities in less than 30 days this November and December. Each performance will consist entirely of Christmas songs, so keep that in mind before you shell out the cash to see your favorite hits from Illinois. The shows will be a full on holiday spectacle, complete with “low-production props and gags, dollar-store giveaway, inflatable unicorns, cheap confetti, make-shift costumes, and Gloria in excelsis does.” Audience participation will be expected, and song sheets will be given out to make sure no one has any excuses. Stevens will be joined by a five piece band that will play all of the hits from both of his Christmas albums (yes, this is his second Christmas album). Tickets go on sale this Friday. Tour dates are listed below.
