After paying rent, buying gas for the car, groceries and making a student loan payment, one’s pockets might be a little light. But not to worry, Janelle Monae and her eccentric crew of talented musicians have announced the free “The Eephus” tour.
The tour, which borrows its name from the group’s forthcoming EP, will kick off August 12 in Philadelphia and end August 31 in Atlanta. The entire roster, yes, even Jidenna and his well-tailored self, will bless the crowd and perform at secret locations around North America. Fans interested must sign up at Wonderland.com.
The tour coincides with the August 14 release of Wondaland Presents The Eephus. The six-track EP will be home to the label’s hits including “Classic Man” and well as the body-bending track “Yoga.”
