After settling into a Monday through Friday gig as the house band for The Tonight Show, you'd think that the Roots might slow down its touring schedule. But Questlove and company still take their hip-hop, soul and jazz act on the road, living up to their reputation as one of the hardest working bands around. Don't worry if you missed out on the group's 2013 release Undun—funky renditions of tracks by artists like Guns N' Roses and Bo Diddley typically fill out the Roots' setlists. Chance the Rapper affiliate Donnie Trumpet opens the show.
