After performing at the Grammys together on Sunday, Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars will team up for a North American co-headlining tour the two announced on their sites Tuesday.

Mars, who nabbed the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance award at the Grammys, will tour with Monae on what has been named the "Hooligans in Wondaland" tour in May and June. British singer/rapper Plan B set to open on select dates.

Tour dates have yet to be announced but fans can get pre-sale tickets on February 17.

Mars recently made a plea deal on Friday for his September cocaine arrest. The singer agreed to pay a $2,000 fine and complete drug counseling and 200 hours of community service and if he completes those terms and stays out of trouble for the next year, the felony cocaine possession charge will be dismissed.

"Bruno is very appreciative he is being given this opportunity as a first offender not to suffer any conviction and instead to have his charge dismissed," Blair Berk, Mars' defense attorney told The Associated Press. "He is taking all of this quite seriously."
