Janelle Monáe

Apple of Prince’s eye and the ultimate superstar

Maximum 4 tickets per person !

With her third longplayer, ‘Dirty Computer’, Janelle Monáe lays down a masterpiece that represents personal, musical, sexual and political freedom. She presents herself, contrary to the previous albums, as human, searching, and an example for the planet’s other doubters.

 ‘Django Jane’, the first single from the album, is a war cry, a defiant protest song for women… and Afro-American women in particular. She also assumes the feminist position in the track ‘Pynk’, for which her voice was used by Canada’s Grimes. In the gorgeous video for the single, the women are dressed in the now much-discussed 'pussy pants' and become dancing vagina’s.

The influence of Prince, Janelle’s mentor, is clear to hear in the new songs too. His funky vibes and grooving rhythms crept into her music with a futuristic twist.

Her excellent live reputation, feel for style and sharp songs make Janelle the ultimate pop-sensation of the moment.
