Norman rapper Orelsan is going on tour. He just announced it this Monday in a video posted on his Instagram account. As usual, his first concert will be in Caen, at the beginning of January. Reservations begin Wednesday October 6.
Orelsan perfectly handles the art of surprise and the opposite. In 2018, it is through the clip of Basic that he had announced the release of a new album. This Monday noon, it is with a very simple video, filmed in selfie, that he announced his return on stage. His new tour will begin on January 15, 2022, at Caen, the city of its beginnings.
There had been a bundle of clues. The Norman rapper had already announced a series of concerts a few weeks ago at the Accor Hotel Arena in Bercy, from March 16 to 19.

His tour currently has 31 dates until July bookable from Wednesday October 6 (all dates and reservations here).

It could well be that the announcements of this 2022 tour and the documentary will be quickly followed by that of a new album. Orelsan has not released an opus for four years, although he had accustomed us to a new CD every two years since his breakthrough in French rap in 2009. While waiting for the release of his new songs, you can wait. by going to read the series of anecdotes he has published in recent weeks on his Youtube account.
