The concerts continue with two legends in the making
With eccentricity oozing out of their pores, they also have the talent to back it up, proving that on their Hooligans in Wondaland Tour.
Monae is probably the smaller of the two stars, but her Archandroid album was a brilliant musical high point and her energetic live performance is a spectacle beautiful to behold. Did you see her at the Granada with Of Montreal last November? Killer.
Bruno Mars is an anomaly. He’s doing the hipster throwback version of old soul acts but here’s hoping his songs from his debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans have a stronger impact live. The kid is talented and his multi-instrumentalism should be respected. Expect big things from these two.
