Erykah Badu is pulling out the big guns for her latest concert trek.

The dynamic singer-songwriter, who just announced dates for her Out My Mind, Just In Time North American tour, will be joined by rising futuristic soul-rock darling Janelle Monae, veteran genre-jumping band N.E.R.D., respected Roots’ drummer ?uestlove, and R&B cult favorite Bilal.

The eclectic lineup will hit the stage at amphitheaters and concert halls beginning May 22 at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore, wrapping up on June 24 at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.

It’s been a busy month for the controversial Badu, who recently released her top 5 album, New Amerykah, Part Two: Return of the Ankh. The singer is set to perform during this summer’s Lollapalooza festival, the Lilith Fair, and will join Maxwell as a special guest on the neo soul crooner’s upcoming concerts at Phillips Arena in Atlanta on June 11 and Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 26. —Keith Murphy
