Electro-pop duo Air coming to Monaco for ‘Moon Safari’ tour

The enduringly popular electro-pop duo Air is returning to the stage after a seven-year hiatus with an international tour that includes a special stop in Monaco. 

Nearly 30 years ago, two young French students from Versailles named Nicolas Godin and Jean Benoît Dunckel joined forces and founded a band. Under the name Air, they soon became a sensation in France.  

The release of their 1998 album ‘Moon Safari’ made them household names in their home country and beyond, and they went on to release a further four studio albums and wrote the film score for Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Virgin Suicides’. 

Now, after seven years away from the stage, the pair is reuniting for a tour that will celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Moon Safari’. The artists, who are now in their 50s, will be performing in more than 40 cities around the globe between June and October 2024, including here in Monaco at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo on Saturday 15th June.  

The Principality stopover is the second date in the tour, which will begin in Barcelona on Friday 14th June. Following performances in a number of European cities, Air will be heading overseas for a string of shows in Canada, the US and Mexico.  

Tickets for the Monaco date start at €120 and can be purchased here.
