Lindsey Stirling announced her fall tour dates, which includes a stop on Oct. 4 at the UCCU Center.

Stirling, a classically trained violinist from Gilbert, Arizona, earned her way to fame through her YouTube channel. The BYU graduate has a unique style of music that blends pop and violin — and it is all accomplished while she dances.

The UCCU Center performance has the general performance tickets ($37–$47) as well as add-ons including a meet and greet with Stirling ($150) and a soundcheck upgrade ($84). Tickets are available online here.

Stirling is releasing her third album, “Brave Enough,” on Aug. 19. The album will feature multiple artists including Christina Perri, Carah Faye, Dan + Shay, ZZ Ward, Raja Kumari, Rivers Cuomo, Lecrae and Andrew McMahon. Stirling worked with McMahon after Disney contacted her and asked her to write a song for the live-action “Pete’s Dragon,” coming to theaters Aug. 12, Stirling announced during a live Facebook session. “Something Wild,” the song written for Disney, will play during the end credits, and Stirling said the music video will be released during the next few weeks. You can pre-order the album on iTunes.

Her most recent music video, “The Arena,” features Derek Hough from “Dancing With the Stars.” The first music video from the new album was inspired by the former U.S. president Theodore Roosevelt’s famous quote: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles; or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” Watch the video below.
