Janelle Monáe Kicking Off Her Free, Secret National Tour in Philadelphia
Electric lady Janelle Monáe and her Wondaland posse will be hitting up Philadelphia at a secret venue on Wednesday, August 12th for “The Eephus Tour.” Similar to Prince’s spontaneous pop-up concerts, you can see Monáe and the Wondaland lineup at no cost—but you have to sign up online to find out location details. You can RSVP here to get details when they’re released—and you should; the lady puts on one hell of a show. Artists accompanying Monáe will include St. Beauty, Roman GianArthur, Deep Cotton, and Jidenna.
“The Eephus Tour” coincides with label’s inaugural album Wondaland Presents: The Eephus. The full record—which includes Monáe’s recent hit “Yoga“—will be released on August 14th, but you can hear a few early-released tracks right now on Apple Music.
The tour will take the crew to other cities like New York and D.C. before wrapping up in Atlanta at the end of August.
