Roots Retiring From Touring?

Share

Sad news for fans of one of the only good live major hip hop acts around. And by good, I mean absolutely amazing...

The Roots will retire from touring in March 2009, according to this handheld interview with ?uestlove himself. Apparently, the Legendary will be the house band for Jimmy Fallon's new late new show. Must have been some payday...

I hope to wake up tomorrow and find out this is a fake of some sort. I love to see these guys live, and I rarely watch late night shows. The Roots will continue their studio work, but don't expect to see much of them outside of NYC. Via Justin Evans at We Hate to Lose.
