Janelle Monáe Announces North American “Dirty Computer Tour”

By Creative Media Times

Janelle Monáe is returning to the road with her “Dirty Computer Tour” which will take her to 27 cities in North America. “I am excited to announce the #DirtyComputer is going on Tour!!! Presales start this Wednesday at 10am local time,” Monáe announced on Monday.

Featuring opener St. Beauty, the tour is set to kick off in Seattle on June 11, with stops in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville and Miami, and concludes on August 4 in Atlanta. The tour is in support of Monae’s highly anticipated third studio album “Dirty Computer,” which drops this Friday, April 27.

The Grammy-nominated singer also recently dropped the official video for “I Like That,” a promotional single from the album, which was preceded by the release of three singles, “Make Me Feel”, “Django Jane”, and “Pynk.”

Both of Monáe’s previous two albums “The ArchAndroid” and “The Electric Lady” received widespread acclaim. The past couple of years have also been a great for Monáe’s film career: she appeared in two critically acclaimed films, the box-office hit “Hidden Figures” and the academy award winning best picture “Moonlight.”

Purchase of the tickets for the tour dates will include a digital copy of “Dirty Computer” album.
