Ticket alert: Janelle Monae bringing 'Dirty Computer Tour' to Fillmore Miami Beach

Hours after debuting her soulful dystopian single “I Like That” on Monday, Janelle Monae, the avant-garde singer, songwriter, actress and model, announced a 27-date “Dirty Computer Tour” that will stop July 27 at the Fillmore Miami Beach.

Tickets cost $45-$65 and go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. May 2 via LiveNation.com, with a series of presales starting a week earlier at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 25. St. Beauty, a duo on Monae’s imprint Wondaland Arts Society, will open for the singer.

With high-profile roles in Academy Award-friendly films “Hidden Figures” and “Moonlight,” the electro-pop singer has emerged as a celebrated actor since the release of her previous album, 2013’s “The Electric Lady.” “I Like That” continues Monae’s chameleonic approach to music, dipping interchangeably into Afro-futurism, funk, electronica, R&B, hip-hop and soul.

“Dirty Computer,” due out April 27, will be accompanied by a 44-minute “emotion picture,” set to premiere April 26 on MTV and BET. Describing the album for Rolling Stone, Monae says “Dirty Computer” is set in a totalitarian society in the future in which “I play a citizen, living life, finding love, being myself in a society where that makes me an outlaw, something 'dirty' that the society needs to get rid of. I think it speaks to where we are right now, and what we’ve gone through recently as black millennials, and as women, and as Americans."
