Since the release of his North American debut album “Racine Carrée,” international superstar Stromae has gone on to sell more than 3.5 million albums, performed for thousands of fans in stadiums across the globe, and for the first time in pop history, will be the first ever French language artist to have headlined the prestigious Madison Square Garden in New York City this fall.

Joining him as special guest at Madison Square Garden is the incomparable Janelle Monáe for one night only on October, 1st 2015. Limited amount of tickets are now available for purchase here. The incredible Jidenna will also join Stromae as direct support for the tour (except for the 9/12 show in Miami). For a full list of tour dates, see below.

High profile fans joining his legion of dedicated supporters include Lorde, Madonna, Diplo, Kanye West (who famously made a surprise appearance on stage at this year's Coachella), Boy George, Tove Lo, Icona Pop, Sam Smith amongst many others. They have all publically proclaimed their admiration for the Belgian artist, whose aforementioned full-length album reached #1 in the Billboard World Album Charts and reached multi-platinum status across the world.
