Sufjan Stevens @ Metro on 12.15.2012

On Saturday night (12/15) Sufjan Stevens brought his The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice tour with Sheila Saputo through Chicago for a performance at Metro. Sufjan had planned out part of the set, but most the song choices were up to his giant “Wheel of Christmas.” He also played a four-number encore of songs from 2005’s Illinois: “Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois,” “John Wayne Gacy, Jr.,” “Casimir Pulaski Day,” and finally “Chicago.”

Check out more pictures from the 12/15 show at Metro at BrooklynVegan, and the full setlist is below…
