Janelle Monáe Takes Dirty Computer To Summerfest

By Armando

Janelle Monáe at 2018 Summerfest

It was another great night full of great performance at Milwaukee as Janelle Monáe brought her magical “Dirty Computer” tour to the big stage of Summerfest.

On Friday night, July 6, Monáe performed at the BMO Harris Pavilion, which seemed to be as much a celebration of empowerment and love as a concert of one the most exciting performers at the moment.

There is a sense of a true star arrival last night, and the reception was proof of it. before she emerged on stage, fans had crowded around the Pavilion where a genuine excitement has built up throughout the night.

Janelle arrived on stage, initially covered in smoke, the show slowly gets into the groove of title track. And she never let go from there. Fans erupted into a loud roar and cheers as the star fully emerged and sang Crazy, Classic, Life, a song from her ‘Computer’ album.

Apart from “Jane’s Dream” and “Stevie’s Dream”, Janelle performed everything the album had to offer and more. During the night, she also took on Q.U.E.E.N. and Electric Lady back to back, both of which are from her 2013 second studio album, The Electric Lady.

Performing with backup dancers beside her, the choreography was on point. She danced, sang and even moonwalked on stage. Even though the stage itself was elaborate and spectacular, and her outfit as loud as it gets, she really held her own.

Janelle really gave best in all her flamboyant glory, and fans responded in kind. Her voice as strong as ever and she had the swagger of a real pro that she is.

The performance is also part of her accompanying tour to promote her latest album “Dirty Computer”, released last April.

Monáe is a real performer who seem capable of doing anything. Apart from her recently released innovative pop record, the world has seen Monáe as an actress in a few acclaimed and award winning films such as Moonlight and Hidden Figures, the former winning best picture at the 89th academy awards.
