Janelle Monáe Cancels Aussie Tour

Janelle Monáe has cancelled her Australasian tour due to an undisclosed illness.

The R&B artist pulled out of Saturday’s concert in Melbourne and another on Monday in Sydney because of the mysterious illness.

The tour promoter, Live Nation Australasia, announced Tuesday the cancellation of the entire tour in Australia and New Zealand.

“Due to Janelle Monáe’s continuing illness it has been confirmed that the remainder of The Golden Electric Tour has been cancelled and there will be no rescheduled performances,” the brief statement reads.

Concerts were scheduled for Brisbane on Thursday; Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday; and back to Melbourne next Monday.

Monáe's five-city “Golden Electric Tour” of Australia and New Zealand is billed as a co-headlining trek with Kiwi artist Kimbra. The American artist fell ill just before she was due on stage at Melbourne’s The Forum. LN said Monáe stayed on in Melbourne on doctor’s orders. She hasn’t recovered her strength.

Monae’s tour is scheduled to return to the U.S. for a string of dates starting May 31 at the Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. It’s unclear whether the U.S. shows will be affected.

OutKast, QOTSA and more in Sweden…Held in Gothenburg, Sweden, Way Out West is one of the more scenically attractive city festivals on the European circuit.

See what they did there? Bloody clever, these Swedes. - - - Thursday, August 7th Following a t ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
