Sufjan Stevens Announces UK and European Dates

Sufjan Stevens has announced his first UK and European tour since 2006.

The tour is to promote last year’s Age of Adz, which has been his most commercially successful album to date.

The tour takes place between April and May and takes in dates at London’s Royal Festival Hall and a headline set at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival

Age of Adz reached number 7 in the US billboard charts and the Top 30 in the UK’s album charts in its first week of release. While Neonfiller initially slated the album, it soon became a grower. (Read the fuss our review caused here)
