Stromae Will Be Joined By Janelle Monáe And Jidenna At Madison Square Garden

Stromae will embark on a 10-date North American tour this fall alongside Jidenna, including a special date in NYC with Janelle Monáe.


Stromae, who came off a tour of Sub-Saharan Africa a couple months ago, is now aiming his sights on North America for a 10-concert tour this coming fall. The string of dates will see Stromae joined by "Classic Man" Jidenna and Freedom Fry for a number of shows as the Belgian-born, Rwandan-rooted pop singer continues his promotion of 2013's hit-packed Racine Carrée — an album that features "Papaoutai," “Ta Fête,” “Ave Cesaria”, and "Carmen."

The Belgian singer has also just announced that he'll be joined by Janelle Monáe as a special guest for a one-night performance at New York City's Madison Square Garden on October 1. It'd be safe to expect that Monáe will collaborate with her fellow Wondaland artist Jidenna during the show.
