Currently two of music’ most innovative artists, America’s Janelle Monae and New Zealand’s Kimbra are teaming up to tour Australia with The Golden Electric Tour. The two have performed before, sharing a stage at the Montreaux Jazz Festival in 2012.

Although Monae has been to Australia before with an set of exclusive shows at Vivid LIVE Festival in 2012 at Sydney Opera House, this will be her first Australian tour. It will be a chance for Australian fans to experience her newer material off her 2013 album The Electric Lady, the follow up to her critically acclaimed 2010 LP debut The ArchAndroid.

It will also be the chance to see new songs from Kimbra, who will surely be playing select tracks off her forthcoming album, the follow up to 2011’s wildly successful Vows.

Tickets on sale 10am Thursday April 17. My Live Nation members’ pre-sale begins 10am this Monday, April 14.
