Not long after releasing her forthcoming LP, The Age of Pleasure, Janelle Monáe will embark on a North American tour in support of the album. The trek—aptly titled the Age of Pleasure Tour—will get started on August 30 in Seattle, Washington, winding through a total of 26 U.S. and Canadian cities before wrapping up in Inglewood, California, on October 18. Monáe will stop off in Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Houston, and more locations during the string of live dates. Find her full schedule below.
The Age of Pleasure, Monáe’s follow-up to her 2018 LP, Dirty Computer, arrives June 9 via Atlantic. The 14-song record includes “Float” (which features Seun Kuti and Egypt 80), and “Lipstick Lover.” The latter arrived earlier this month with a music video co-directed by Monáe and Alan Ferguson.
