When the word got out that Brooklyn Bowl resident Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, and neo-soul legend/frequent collaborator D’Angelo were scheduled to play a intimate two-man performance, tickets sold out almost immediately. This of course left a stream of anxious fans frantically searching for tickets.
D’Angelo has had his share of prolonging expectations, and sure enough an apologetic Questlove had announced “you waited thirteen years, you guys can wait a little longer…”. But after a two-hour delay D’Angelo made his appearance on stage, and the overly anxious crowd instantly settled into the performance many had been waiting their whole lives to witness.
The two-man set included covers of songs by Sly and the Family Stone, and Prince, as well as originals including “Africa”, “The Root”, and “The Line” from D’s Voodoo.
