Janelle Monáe And Bruno Mars Are Starting Their Joint Tour At Roseland

by

Longtime SOTC readers will recall our undying obsession with the Janelle Monáe live experience — as bewitching as her critic-beloved 2010 full-length debut, The ArchAndroid, might have been, you haven’t truly “gotten” her until you’ve seen her onstage, howling and pogoing and (climactically) stage-diving, just as she did Sunday night during her Grammy-telecast performance with Bruno Mars and the magnificently be-monocled B.o.B. Now Bruno and Janelle are banding together for a joint tour, dubbed Hooligans in Wondaland, that will apparently start in NYC, with a May 4 date at Roseland. Tix should be on sale late next week; in the meantime, relive that Grammy moment below, and appreciate anew the fact that, as our Grammy live-bloggers rightfully noted, Janelle bodies it.
