Janelle Monáe Coming to ACL Live Nov. 12




Named after her new album to be released on September 10, Janelle Monáe will be bringing her Electric Lady Tour to Austin City Limits Live, November 12 at Austin’s Moody Theater. Tickets will be on sale August 23 at 10 a.m. and you can get them at or by calling (877) 4FLYTIX.

In press materials, she explained the meaning of first single “Q.U.E.E.N.”

“An Electric Lady is Quirky, Unafraid, Electric, Epic and Nicety,” she said. “That’s when you’re being nice and nasty, noble and naughty all at the same damn time. Because even superheroes need a glass of red wine. Even rebel women need a kiss every once in a while. What’s proper and acceptable behavior simply depends on the time of day

and the kind of week you’ve been having.”
