STROMAE SET FOR JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! TONIGHT APRIL 27
GEARING UP FOR LOLLAPALOOZA, SECOND LEG OF US TOUR, AND MADISON SQUARE GARDEN HEADLINE SHOW FOLLOWING UNFORGETTABLE COACHELLA DEBUT
“CARMEN” MUSIC VIDEO GOES VIRAL WITH CAUTIONARY TALE OF TWEETPOCALYPSE
NEW YORK, NY (April 27, 2015) Fresh off his breakout set at Coachella, Stromae will perform on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! TONIGHT, April 27. The appearance will mark the first time he performs “Carmen” on late night TV here in the US. Make sure to tune in for what’s bound to be another head-turning display from the global superstar, producer, and singer-songwriter.
Coachella turned out to be a landmark milestone for Stromae. Pulling out all the stops for the captive audience, Kanye West joined him on stage during a performance of their 2010 collaboration “Alors On Danse”—leading to one of the weekend’s most-talked about moments. Billboard described the set as “honest and emotive, effective and funny, confident and ambitious,” adding, “He’s a fully-fledged superstar in an up-and-comer’s body.” In addition to proclaiming him an “Artist to Watch,” Rolling Stone summed it up as “Best pop theatricality.”
Stromae recently teamed up with BuzzFeed to premiere his animated music video for “Carmen.” Amassing 7 Million views in a day, the video quickly went viral due to its sharp, smart message, literally setting the internet on fire with talk of the Tweetpocalypse. Watch “Carmen” here.
Stromae will return to North America for a massive fall headline tour along the east coast, culminating at the legendary Madison Square Garden on October 1st (full list of dates below).
Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the few contemporary musicians to directly evoke Europe’s ambient moroseness” with “an eclecticism that has earned him critical praise,” Stromae has received critical aclaim from the world’s most respected critics including The New Yorker, NPR, Billboard Magazine, Time Out Magazine, amongst many others. Since his last sold out North American tour Stromae has sold more than 3.5 million albums worldwide, with his breakout single “Papaoutai” approaching the 250-million mark on YouTube/VEVO, also reaching #1 on iTunes in 18 different countries.
Watch Stromae’s incredible music videos for “Papaoutai,” “Ta fête,” “Tous les mêmes,” “Formidable” and “Alors On Danse.”
