The Root Recommends: Hooligans in Wondaland Tour

Fresh off their smashing performance at this year's Grammys, Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae begin their Hooligans in Wondaland Tour in New York this Wednesday. 


If you watched the Grammys this year, then you know exactly why we are recommending Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae's tour, Hooligans in Wondaland. Both artists bring something unique to the table with their sounds, whether its their old-school touch or futuristic tones. Hitting the road this week, they will embark on a two-month swing across North America with stops in Atlanta; Ontario, Canada; and San Francisco.

Both are scheduled to play hits off of their albums, including Mars' "Nothin' on You" and Monae’s "Tightrope." The tour begins this Wednesday in New York City and concludes on June 15 in Phoenix. To find out more information or to get tickets, visit Ticketmaster
