170786, Toronto Question
Posted by little bredren, Fri Apr-11-08 08:37 PM
anybody know if the roots are coming with Erykah to Toronto?
i know that on here it says that they're not, and originally, it didn't on ticketmaster either, but i checked on ticketmaster today, and it says with special guests the roots
so i'm extremely excited, but also kind of confused and skeptical at this point

also, if the roots do end up showing up, how is that going to work? are they gonna open for her, be her backing band, etc? is black thought coming too? how long's their set gonna be?

thanks
170820, Yeah, its say the Roots are on the bill too ???
Posted by soulsupreme, Sat Apr-12-08 02:40 PM
OKpDan can we get a confirmation. The Roots are Detroit May 4th with her so there in the vicinity, hope it goes down.
