As of today, there has been no official word yet on whether or not ?uestlove's claims are actually true.

Fallon's late night show will premiere March of next year and is replacing Late Night With Conan O'Brien; O'Brien's show will move to Jay Leno's current timeslot.

The Roots current tour will be making stops in Berlin, London, Amsterdam, and other cities in the UK before returning to the United States for their December 30 show in Atlantic City.
