Roots run with Fallon starts tonight
The Roots’ days as a heavy touring band are over – at least temporarily – and tonight the group will kick of its run as the house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on NBC. In preparation for the new gig, ?uestlove and Black Thought sat down with The National Post to let us know what to expect.
According to ?uest, we can expect a whole bunch of different styles, ranging from rock to comedy to “cheesy 80s stuff.” As he put it, the group is a “walking Rolodex of musical styles.” Isn’t that an understatement?
As for touring, ?uestlove assured Americans that they have nothing to worry about. The Roots will still be spreading about ten weeks of touring across the course of the year. They’ll also be playing scattered weekend shows.
