Last night in Chicago The Roots announced that they will be retiring from touring effective March 2009. The move is being made to accommodate their new Night Gig as the house band for Jimmy Fallon when he replaces Conan O’Brien as the host of Late Night in March of 2009. Conan will be moved to the Tonight Show.
I guess you can't pass a gig like that up. but i dont find jimmy fallon that funny. oh well. I've seen The Root live 2wice so at least i have that. . . .
