Illusive is absolutely thrilled to announce that ?uestlove, founding member of The Legendary Roots Crew, will perform an exclusive DJ set in Melbourne at Roxanne following the band’s performance at Festival Hall on Sat 28 December. As one the world’s most famed music lovers, producers, tastemakers and DJs (who played over 200 sets in 2012 alone), his crates carry an almost mythical quality.
Along with the rest of The Roots, this is his first appearance in Melbourne since the band’s sell-out 2007 Australian tour due to nightly commitments as the much-celebrated house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. This makes their international trips more special than ever, with ?uest’s legendary five-hour DJ set at FFour (now New Guernica) still talked about six years on.
The Roots hit Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Friday 27 December and Melbourne’s Festival Hall on Saturday 28 December, both of which are on track to sell out. ?uestlove’s DJ sets are always a spiritual experience. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness one of popular music’s true icons spinning in the flesh.
