JANELLE MONAE (London Wembley Arena, 02/07/19)
Nine years ago, I attended Janelle Monae's London debut at the 300-capacity Hoxton Bar & Kitchen. This evening, she performed the 12,500-capacity Wembley Arena. And whilst this may not have been quite so intimate (or hellishly humid) as that 2010 set, she did bring on Lupita Nyong'o for juice-related reasons, and descended into the audience during the encore to get up close and personal with us mere mortals. A once-in-a-generation talent at the peak of her powers.
