Lindsey Stirling is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years.

Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans.

A motivational speaker in her spare time, Stirling uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am!  A pre-sale opportunity runs Wednesday, March 18 at 10am – Thursday, March 19 at 10pm.  Use the code word STRINGS.
