The Color Purple has been born again... The current version is a slim, fleet-footed beauty, simply attired and beguilingly modest. Don't be deceived, though, by its air of humility. There's a deep wealth of power within its restraint.

Why See Janelle Monae?

Afrofuture Icon Janelle Monae Tours Dirty Computer

Hot on the heels of the long awaited 2018 release of her third studio album Dirty Computer, groundbreaking retro RnB goddess Janelle Monae is hitting the road this Summer, bringing special guests St. Beauty along for the ride. The six-time Grammy nominated singer songwriter, producer and rapper first broke the modern pop mold with her bold debut The ArchAndroid, a concept album that blended afro-futurism, killer hooks and a sci-fi aesthetic.

Capturing the essence of sensual neo-soul funk stylings of Prince in his prime, as well as the watertight songwriting of Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill and Michael Jackson, Monae's latest musical rebirth sees the artist take on the patriarchy in her lyrical content, championing the feminine form and celebrating what it means to be queer, black and feminist in today's mixed up world. Known for her theatrical live shows filled to the rafters with electric anthems and a rhythm section tighter than lycra jumpsuit this powerhouse performer is not to be missed.
