Sufjan Stevens announces UK and Ireland tour dates

On the back of acclaimed new album Carrie & Lowell, Sufjan embarks on first UK tour in four years

We already knew Sufjan Stevens was gracing Edinburgh with his presence for the International Festival in August, but the singer-songwriter has just announced live dates across the UK and Europe over August and September.

Coming on the back of his hugely acclaimed new album Carrie & Lowell – which entered the UK and US charts at number six – it will be Sufjan's first UK shows in four years, so best snatch up tickets when they drop as they won't be available for long.

Tickets for all dates go on sale at 9am on Thu 23 Apr via www.carrieandlowell.com/tour.
