Janelle Monáe Embarking On Age Of Pleasure Tour, Beginning Late August


Janelle Monáe has announced that they will embark on their nationwide Age Of Pleasure Tour later this year.

The 26-city run commences on August 30 in Seattle and will make stops in major cities including Toronto, New York City, Atlanta, St. Louis, Philadelphia, and Dallas. The tour will wrap in Inglewood, Calif. at the YouTube Theater on October 18.

News of the tour comes ahead of Monáe’s highly-anticipated new album, The Age of Pleasure—which is slated for release on June 9. Their clever new single, “Lipstick Lover,” is currently making rounds with a spicy visual to match.

However, the 37-year-old free spirit issued the “clean virgin” alternate video just yesterday (May 30). “Aight after much back and forth and private court dates i decided to release the sinsored ‘clean virgin’ of ‘Lipstick Lover’ against my will,” they declared. “I added 100 more pixels by hand so y’all bet not sneak and watch the original. It’s still very cool to me. Enjoy loves!”

Tickets for the long-awaited tour will be available via Verizon presales on Thursday, June 1 at 10 a.m. local time. General on-sale starts on Wednesday, June 7 at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster
