Hip-hop legends DJ Shadow (Endtroducing, The Private Press) and Cut Chemist (Ozomatli, Jurassic 5) join forces to pay tribute to Afrika Bambaataa, the trailblazer who famously fused Euro techno beats with New York City flare during rap's fledgling days. With their vinyl-only "Renegades of Rhythm" tour, the two preeminent turntablists will celebrate Bambaataa's iconic sound -- playing his classics "Planet Rock" and "Renegades of Funk," as well as source material from the tastemaker's own record collection. They'll take to the stage with six turntables, two mixers and tons of old-school memorabilia. Learn More

It was a fine show. His voice seemed to be great in shape , not like the last time i saw him three yrs ago .He talked a fair amount between songs ,which i found amusing. The band was also great, bunch of young guys who had there chops.Overall a very enjoyable evening.
Leon Russell played on, produced, arranged, and wrote some of rock and roll’s most successful and important records. George Benson’s cover of “This Masquerade” written by Leon was the first song in music history to occupy the number one spot on the jazz, pop, and R&B charts. “This Masquerade” also won “Record of the Year” and a Grammy in 1976. He released five Gold Albums and had a hand in many other chart hits including “Superstar,” and a “A Song For You.”
Leon was instrumental in some of Joe Cocker’s biggest hits, including, perhaps, the defining song of Joe Cocker’s career, “Delta Lady,” written by Leon. The Carpenters struck gold with Leon’s song “Superstar,” Ray Charles covered “A Song For You,” and B.B. King covered “Hummingbird.” Leon Russell is pop music’s most anonymous big shot.
