Critically acclaimed singer and actress Janelle Monae will be touring in 2023, bringing the Age of Pleasure Tour on the road for much of the fall in support of her upcoming album of the same name. Monae’s highly anticipated album is releasing on June 9, featuring her latest single, Lipstick Lover.

The tour, which “promises to light up your body, soul and all of your senses with an unforgettable performance,” according to the announcement from Live Nation, will hit 26 cities in North America. It launches with a show on August 30 at Seattle’s WAMU Theater and wraps up on October 18 at YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California. In between, Monae will play shows at venues that include Red Rocks (near Denver), Armory (Minneapolis), MGM Music Hall at Fenway (Boston), The Anthem (Washington, D.C.), Radio City Music Hall (New York), Ryman Auditorium (Nashville), and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (San Francisco).

Tickets for Janelle Monae’s The Age of Pleasure Tour will be on sale beginning with a presale limited to members of the Verizon Up program that launches on Thursday, June 1. There will be other presales varying by date and venue from that point on through the general public ticket sale, scheduled for Wednesday, June 7.


Monae’s video for the Lipstick Lover single was released earlier in May, but the racy nature of the footage led to it being restricted, with a “clean” version released this week prior to the tour announcement.
