Janelle Monae and Wondaland Announce Free Eephus Tour
Janelle Monae and her whimsical team of Wondaland artists are heading to a city near you.
The Wondaland Records founder is teaming up with Toyota for The EEPHUS Tour. The seven-city adventure is an invite-only affair and admission is free for fans who sign up via the Wondaland website.
The “Yoga” creator will not only perform on center stage but so will the entire Wondaland roster including singers Jidenna (of "Classic Man" fame) and Roman GianArthur (remember our Live Bytes series he was featured in?). The duos Deep Cotton -- comprised of Chuck Lightning and Nate “Rocket” Wonder -- and St. Beauty -- featuring Alex Belle and Isis Valentino -- will also join in on the performance trek.
The EEPHUS tour kicks off on Aug. 12 in Philadelphia and continues with stops in New York, D.C., Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago. The fun will come to a close with a homecoming set in Atlanta.
In addition to live performances, concert-goers in specific cities will also be invited to check out the Wondaland compilation album, Wondaland Presents THE EEPHUS, which drops on Aug. 14. In New York, Chicago, Atlanta and D.C., there will be a drive-in movie theme where fans can win tickets and listen to the entire EP from inside a 2015 Toyota Camry.
