Sufjan Stevens at Town Hall (09/26/09)

Though he’s played some shows here and there (The BQE, Shuffle Mode at BAM and a few scant others), this is Sufjan Stevens’ first proper tour since he played the Town Hall in 2006 in support of The Avalanche. I’ve got to give him credit though, he could probably headline Radio City, or at least the Beacon Theatre, but instead he’s showing the fans some love and playing four small club shows in NYC, two at the Bowery and two at MHOW. Tickets go on sale Saturday, August 15 at some point during the day.

We wanted to make this as equitable for all of the fans so there are a few things to read carefully here. Due to the sizes of the venues, tickets will be limited. With that in mind, we wanted to avoid ticket scalpers and ensure that as many fans as possible could attend these shows. Tickets must be picked up at will-call the night of the show (not mailed), tickets are non-transferable and purchaser must present a government-issued photo ID. Also, there is a two ticket limit per purchaser. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Tickets go on sale Friday the 14th Saturday the 15th. We’ll post the purchase links on Thursday, but the venues will be handling the purchasing and will turn those on when they can (we have no control over what time Friday they turn the links “on”).

Update: tickets will go live sometime on Saturday. [Asthmatic Kitty]
