Many hearts are a flutter with the news that the one Sufjan Stevens is touring this fall and taking his show to historic theatres and venues across North America, and yes including a few Canadian dates. He will be in Toronto for a show at the grand old lady of Shuter Street, Massey Hall on October 13. A special presale for fans will take place today(August 10) with a limited number of tickets going onsale and expected to sell out quickly, but otherwise tickets will go onsale through the venues later with some theatres selling tickets on Friday August 13 and others later. To avoid scalping, there is a 4 person ticket limit, and the first 20 rows of seats are WILL CALL ONLY. The first and only time I'd see Sufjan live was back on September 10, 2005 at Trinity St. Paul's in Toronto and having missed out on tickets when he played an intimate, extremely sold-out show at Lee's Palace on October 1 of last year, let's say I'm highly anticipating on getting tickets to his show at Massey Hall this coming October.
So again, the presale is TODAY[Tuesday August 10th,] starting at 1 pm EST. You can see details, dates, and (as of Tuesday 1pm EST) links to purchase tickets here
