A TRIBE CALLED QUEST PERFORMING ‘MIDNIGHT MARAUDERS’
Alternative hip hop luminaries, A Tribe Called Quest, are slated to perform their coveted third album, Midnight Marauders, from beginning to end. The 1993 release was the highly anticipated, up-tempo follow up to The Low End Theory achieving critical and commercial success.
“This is one of those rare shows that lives up to the promise,” states Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union. “It’s such a massive blessing to have all of these amazing performers embrace the opportunity to celebrate and unite everyone that loves Hip Hop. I woke up this morning and asked my son to pinch me because I could not believe it myself. This kind of show happens only once in a lifetime. It’s a serious piece of live music history. All these records in one day? Some of the greatest records ever. I can’t wait to see it!”
“Festivals the size and caliber of this year’s ROCK THE BELLS are rare and difficult to assemble,” adds Weisberg about the decision to visit four cities this year. “We know that there are a lot of fans from other markets disappointed that ROCK THE BELLS isn’t stopping in their city this year. Hopefully, those fans can travel to one of the four destination cities or support one of our more intimate shows that we’re planning for the fall.”
