Questlove and D'Angelo put on a stellar performance together at Philadelphia's Theater of the Living Arts. Kicking off nearly two hours after the already late door time, the pair managed to pull it together and give a show to remember complete with performances of the classic "Ex Girl to the Next Girl" and other hip-hop gold. In all the show left fans satisfied, and quickly drove out any concern over the time.
“It’s been a long-time coming,” Questlove told the sold-out crowd at Philadeliphia’s Theater of the Living Arts late Wednesday night, a few songs into his two-man show with D’Angelo. That wasn’t exactly true: The pair performed a similar set together a few months ago at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, and D’Angelo played a comeback gig at last year’s Made in America festival in Philly. Nonetheless, the intimate show, billed “Brothers at Arms,” had all the feelings of a homecoming, or maybe a time machine: Questlove, who called himself Philly’s “first son,” and D’Angelo sounding like it was 2000 all over again, when the two combined to record the seminal album "Voodoo."
