Calling all you Androids!
All hail your fearless leader Cindi Mayweather, aka Janelle Monáe, who is full steam ahead with the promotion of her upcoming album entitled “Dirty Computer”, which lands in stores Friday, April 27th. With anyone who drops an album, they can’t wait to bring the new material directly to their fans in a live showing.
Hot off the presses is the surprise announcement of the “Dirty Computer” Tour, where the North American trek kicks off in Seattle on June 11th. Making moves in 27 cities around the country in the most usual suspect of places, it’s currently scheduled to wrap up on August 4th in Atlanta. The last time anyone had the ability to see Jane on tour was on the pop up Eephus Tour back in 2015.
If you know anything about Ms. Monáe, you know that she runs Wondaland Records, and goes HARD for the artists in the stable, so it should be no surprise that she’s bringing her group St. Beauty along with her to chime in on some of the action.
Presales start this Wednesday at 10am local time, while regular tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Wednesday, May 2 at LiveNation.com; every online U.S. ticket purchased for the tour includes a standard digital copy of “Dirty Computer”; instructions on how to redeem a copy will be sent to ticket purchasers via email on Friday, the day of release.
