Everything to Know About Janelle Monae’s Age of Pleasure North American Tour

On May 31st, singer and actress Janelle Monae, announced her Age of Pleasure North American tour. This preceded her new album of the same name, which dropped a few days later. The singer will tour across North America, starting August 30 in Seattle, Washington. It will make stops in Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Kansas City, New York City, and Brooklyn before ending in Inglewood, California on October 18th. Monae has promised her fans to light it up with her body and soul as well as all the human senses for an unforgettable experience in each show. Other than featuring songs from her new album, the singer will also include other previous songs from her discography. This will be her first tour in five years, as her last one was in 2018 for her Dirty Computer album. 

According to Live Nation Entertainment, Monae herself “is one of the most celebrated artists of the modern era.” Her accolades include being an eight-time Grammy winner for singing, writing songs, producing, and performing as well as being a worldwide fashion icon. Her most popular albums include The Archandroid, The Electric Lady, and Dirty Computer, a nominee for album of the year in 2018. Monae is also heavily involved in political activism, as she fights for social justice in the LGBTIA+ community. 

Commenting on the tour, Monae told the Los Angeles Times, “It’s beautiful that I have a title called ‘The Age of Pleasure’ because it actually re-centers me. It’s not about the album anymore, as I have changed my whole lifestyle.” She even mentioned how the COVID-19 pandemic was an inspiration for the title, as it allowed her more appreciation with her community in general.
