The Detroit Musician Announces Dates in England and Ireland

Sufjan Stevens, the American musician that released his latest album “The Age of Adz” last year, has announced new tour dates, which will see him making the journey across the Atlantic to perform in front of his British and Irish fans. It is the latest opportunity for audiences to pick up concert tickets to witness the well known musician, who has been entertaining audiences for the last decade.

The singer will arrive in the United Kingdom in May, with his first dates taking place at London’s Royal Festival Hall, followed by the Sage Theatre in Gateshead, then the Dublin Olympia Theatre and finally landing at the Apollo in Manchester.

Stevens first emerged with the debut album “A Sun Came” in 2000 and across the last decade followed it up with records that demonstrated a range of different styles. His follow up was “Enjoy Your Rabbit” in 2001, with “Michigan” and “Seven Swans” following in 2003 and 2004. But it was his 2005 release “Illinois” that really put him on the map and brought him to a much larger audience. Since then he has released “Songs for Christmas”, “The BQE” and “All Delighted People” before his most recent album “The Age of Adz” appeared on shelves in October 2010, reaching number 30 in the UK album charts.

Last year the performer appeared on stages in the United States and followed it up with appearances down under in Australia and New Zealand at the beginning of 2011. But now it is the turn of his British fans to get a look in and judging by the size of the venues he has chosen to play, it is clear that a large turnout is expected.

sufjan Stevens plays London’s Royal Festival on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th May 2011, followed by the Gateshead Sage Theatre on Monday 16th May, Dublin Olympia Theatre on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th May and, finally, the Manchester O2 Apollo on Thursday 19th May 2011.
