Janelle Monae

Kansas City q.u.e.e.n. Janelle Monae returns to the UK this Spring for a set of three headline shows, setting stages alight in Manchester, Birmingham and London in May.

Nominated for Best International Female at his year’s BRIT Awards, Janelle Monae‘s highly esteemed shows employ onstage antics that include anything from live painting and playing dead to straitjackets and stage dives – attendees can expect a supercharged performance paired with top notch vocals from this electric lady.

Her critically acclaimed second album The Electric Lady was released in September, spawning the eclectic singles “Dance Apocalyptic,” “Q.U.E.E.N.” featuring Erykah Badu and “Primetime” featuring Miguel, with other highlights including collaborations with Solange, Esperanza Spalding and the mighty Prince.
