We think that’s exactly what we said when we read this email from the fine fellows at China West Entertainment:
We have just confirmed the legendary, Grammy winning (and nominated for 2 more in 2007!), #1 hip-hop band in the world, THE ROOTS to perform in mid-April in Shanghai and Beijing. Press release and materials forthcoming, but in the meantime, here’s some facts and ticket prices …
Let us repeat: Holy shit! The Roots!
Here are the details:
The Roots at Yun Feng Theater, 1700 Beijing Xi Lu near Jiaozhou Lu (北京西路1700号 近胶州路), April 16. Tickets RMB 280, 380, 480 (not on sale yet).
They are also playing Star Live in Beijing on April 17. Same prices.
China West has two other shows coming to Shanghai this spring, both at Yun Feng Theater:
- Ziggy Marley, March 27. Tickets: RMB 280-480. (Also at Star Live in Beijing on March 26.) We know what you are saying, “Ziggy Marley … Isn’t he related to …?” Yep, you are right. Ziggy is the half brother of Rohan Marley, who played football at the University of Miami.
- Some guy named Kenny G, March 29. Tickets: RMB 480-1,280. (Also at Beijing Exhibition Center Theater on March 31.) We don’t know much about this guy, but it has been said that, “Mr. G is very nice.”
