The Roots Pull Out of David Bowie Tribute Concert


Questlove announces that The Roots are pulling out of an upcoming David Bowie tribute show after bumping heads with one of the other bands on the bill...



Concert organizers later released this statement
There was a miscommunication about the use of the Holy Holy’s drum kit last night on the tight City Winery stage for the rehearsal show. Very unfortunate. I would hope that after a nights sleep and knowing we have a much larger stage with multiple drum kits and other equipment that The Roots will still join us this evening. They have been a regular part of our tribute series and we deeply love and respect them. I remain hopeful they will still join the important celebration of David Bowie’s music tonight and tomorrow and the two sold out shows can experience their powerful performance as one of the 20 amazing songs planned.

Childish and immature.Why were you going to do the concert in the first place? Do it or don't. Twitter is everybody's shoulder to cry on. Get a friend.
