I knew that The Roots' free show at Nathan Phillips Square for Panamania, the Arts & Culture Program of the Pan Am Games, was going to be popular. I had a feeling that it would surpass all the other Panamania shows I have attended in terms of the overall crowd size. And I was right.
setlist was enjoyable for all with varied funky musical interludes and entertaining stage presence. They mixed in a bit of classic rock in the form of Guns N Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine", and George Thoroughgood's "Bad to the Bone" and "Who Do You Love?", too.
"The Next Movement"
"Break You Off"
"You Got Me"
