This one was a surprise: The legendary De La Soul is playing Venue of Scottsdale (formerly the Cajun House) on June 20.
Tickets are (gulp) $30. Get ’em here.
I saw De La Soul multiple times in the group’s prime (once with A Tribe Called Quest and Souls of Mischief … unreal), and I fear a show like this could taint those memories. That’s not to say the group can’t still bring it, but it’s definitely not 1993 anymore, Toto.
Anyway, one of these weeks I’m going to have a De La Soul Remix Week. I have De La remixes left and right. Here’s one for ya.

One thought on “Incoming: De La Soul, June 20”
The last time I saw De La live was at the Spitkicker Tour (@ Celebrity Theater) in 2000 or 2001, I think. It was obviously a great bill (Common was there, too), but De La put on a great show. Post-ArtOfficialIntelligence, I haven’t really kept up, but I’m sure it’ll be a good show.
The $30 ticket price, though, is pretty hefty. Considering that The Roots / Erykah Badu show is less and a week earlier … it’ll be interesting to see what the turn out will be like.
As a sidenote, I think nearly everyone I’ve seen at Celebrity makes a comment about the rotating stage.
