Sufjan Stevens (no support): 8:30pm
Venue: Concert Hall
A decade on from the critic-certified classic Illinois, Sufjan Stevens finally makes his solo return with the introspective folk suites of his seventh album, Carrie & Lowell.
Having first performed at the Opera House with his neon-explosion The Age of Adz, the 39-year-old artist has become a familiar face to Vivid LIVE – debuting the solar song cycle Planetarium in 2012 with long-term collaborators Bryce Dessner and Nico Muhly.
Now set to open proceedings with an Australian exclusive four-night stand before returning to overseas obligations, Sufjan Stevens will draw from one of the most successful modern songbooks to encompass Christmas classics, regional history, freeways, the rodeo... and the profound intimacies of everyday life.
