Sufjan Stevens announces 2016 Australian tour

Keeping true to his promise to return to Australia early next year Sufjan Stevens has announced a series of national dates for February next 2016. He is set to play Sydney on February 22, Melbourne on February 26, Perth on March 2 and Brisbane on March 4. See the tour poster below.

Stevens was recently in Australia to play four shows at the Sydney Opera House for Vivid LIVE. It was his first visit since the release of his new album Carrie & Lowell, a record that intimately touched on his difficult relationship with his mother, who abandoned him as a baby, and died recently after a battle with cancer. As our reviewer Nick Halworth noted: “Sufjan himself is visibly moved at times, as he feels his way through material that’s clearly still very fresh for him.”
