The Roots Guitar Center Times Square Launch

7 Aug 2014: Best Buy Theater — New York

The Roots’ first show since their manager Richard Nichols died in July was a celebration for Guitar Center’s new store in Times Square. Aside from having their banners on stage, the sponsor didn’t have much else to do once the Roots took control of the audience just after 10 pm. As Entertainment Weekly wrote, “The band took the stage at New York’s Best Buy Theater Thursday to celebrate Guitar Center’s 50th anniversary, kicking off their set with a rousing performance of “Table of Contents (Parts 1 & 2)” off their 1999 album Things Fall Apart. Sousaphonist Tuba Gooding Jr. kicked up his knees and marches across the stage as he played, often looking like he’d been transported from a 4th of July parade, and Black Thought bounced around as he rapped.” You can check out photos of Black Thought bouncing below or find a larger gallery of images over on Facebook.
