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.

Five stars live! Amazing performances

What can I say!! Blown away is what I can say. A friend introduced us to her a few months ago, encouraging us to listen to “Dirty Computer”. We were hooked. Tickets for London were being resold at rediculous prices..... then......let's go to Brussels. The performance was more than any of us could have expected, never leaving the stage, so full of energy. Her band and dancers were obviously enjoying themselves, I’ve never seen so many happy faces on one stage. I wish I could see it all over again in London!! Prince would have been looking and watching from wherever he is, proud as anything. Janelle, please come back soon. Loving Brussels by the way. We will be back very soon. Xxxx

Amazing performance from Janelle Monáe. But AB, why didn't you tell us the support act had cancelled? A little announcement would have saved a lot of confusion.

Weergaloos. Een blije strijdbare stem. Zangeres, danseres, performer, songwriter, regisseur, producer, politica ... hoe is het mogelijk?
