The Roots Announce U.S. Tour With Arrested Development and Digable Planets

The Roots will tour with Arrested Development and Digable Planets this summer. The groups will all appear at the Roots’ inaugural Los Angeles edition of Roots Picnic, which, like the tour, is subtitled Hip-Hop Is the Love of My Life. The U.S. jaunt begins in earnest in August in Houston, Texas in August, and wraps two weeks later in Boston, Massachusetts. Check out the itinerary below.

Before all that, the Roots have a handful of concerts and festival appearances in the diary, including at their own Roots Picnic in Philadelphia in early June. The lineup for that features André 3000, Jill Scott, and Lil Wayne, who will perform in a special New Orleans celebration backed by the Roots.
