"HUH? Just bought my Roots & GCH ticket but....."


  

          

Always gotta go when The Legendary comes to Toronto, so just grabbed my ticket at Ticketmaster. When I looked at it though, I saw:

GYM CLASS HEROES (large-font-headliner-size)
AND THE ROOTS (small-font-opener-size)

When the girl was looking it up in the computer she couldn't find it under The Roots, I had to give her the venue and she said, "Oh, looks like it's because they're not headlining". Now clearly I'm not taking her word as gospel, but from the computer system, and the ticket, is it safe to say that The Roots are indeed not closing out these shows?

man, ya. Same question from me. Im in Vancouver but I will be flying out there for this show and I ordered my tickets online. They arrived yesterday and I saw that shit on the ticket and was a bit concerned.

I really hope thats not the case.

The other thread said that they are supposedly alternating openers/headliners.....man, i hope the ticket and that chick are wrong wrong wrong.


I wanna see the 215 close that shit down on the 26th..................

please&thanks

Probably not, they are co headlining and alternating closing dates. Set times should be equal but you may not catch them close. I unfortuantely will be in the same situation in Norfolk, but hey i am seeing Mos the night before instead of them headlining i think i win.

In response to Reply # 3


  

          

Maybe they're more 'pop'-bigger, but really these cats are youngins. As long as The Roots get a full set I'm good. Plus it's a Sunday night so my ass won't be dragging as hard Monday morning.
