North America | Orelsan on tour in the USA and Canada this September

French rapper Orelsan will be on tour in the USA and Canada from September 17 to September 29.

OrelSan is a French rapper, songwriter, actor and film director who became famous with outstanding music videos published on the Internet in 2008.

Since his first album came out in 2009 – Perdu d’avance –, OrelSan switched from project to project and, soon, became well-known to a broader audience.

Today, he is one half of the French hip hop duo Casseurs Flowters, along with Gringe, with whom he has released two studio albums: Orelsan et Gringe sont les Casseurs Flowters in 2013, and the original soundtrack of his 2015 first movie Comment c’est loin.

In addition to his rapper career, OrelSan is introducing his exclusive clothing brand, cocurated by Sebastian Strappazzon: Avnier. He is also the voice of One Punch Man (Saïtama) in France.

Released on October 2017, his third record La Fête Est Finie offers an explosive mix of catchy rhythms and well-written punchlines. Within three months, the album was already certified 4 times platinum in France and he received three major awards in the French music industry : Best Rap Album / Best Audiovisual Creation / Male Artist of the Year.

After 20 sold out shows in France, Belgium and Switzerland (170 000 tickets sold), including two AccorHotels Arena in Paris, he will carry on by touring in North America – 2 dates out of 8 are already sold-out.
