The Roots [Audio]: It’s just a game


Tim Hardaker catches up with Questlove, 2 hours before they go on stage for a live show (complete with backstage background chatter). Questlove expresses the importance of their live performance, his theory of how they won their grammy “by default” and the high school days with Boys II Men.

Widely regarded as the most influential hip-hop live act in the world, The Roots will be returning to Australia in April for a national tour, and inthemix is proud to be a presenting partner of the tour! Already announced as one of the headline acts for the 2007 East Coast Blues & Roots Festival in Byron Bay over Easter, this will be The Roots’ first visit since their sell out tour in August 2005.

The Roots will be joined at all shows by True Live, the Melbourne ensemble featuring RHyNO MC out front, backed by a three piece string section, drums and keys. Tickets for the tour go onsale Tuesday January 30th and will be available on ITM.
