Gig News: The Roots and John Legend come to London (and free song on Amazon!)

Yes, you read that correctly.  The Roots and John Legend will be passing through Hammersmith Apollo on November 27th in support of their album, Wake Up! (which finally gets a UK release on October 18th).

Words cannot describe how off the chain the concert should  be.  The Roots always put on incredible shows and John Legend, from what I hear, is also a stellar live performer.  The tickets go on sale Friday 15th October (if I find pre-sale I will post the link up).  It’s looking like tickets will be about £35.  Steep for anyone else, however a bargain for these guys, the concert has that much potential.

Expect super funky soul from the Wake Up! album, which sees them reinterpreting and covering classic soul records.  I also expect both artists to dip in to their own unrivaled back catalog of songs too.

Just for good measure, below is the video for one of the songs,  Hard Times.



Stop Press: Just searching around on Amazon and found out they are offering one of the singles from the album, Compared To What, for free download in the UK.  Click this link –

Giving away music this good for free is actually criminal!!!

Soulside Funk
