A Tribe Called Quest call festival appearance last 'ever' NY performance

A Tribe Called Quest call festival appearance last 'ever' NY performance”

It's the end of an era.

A Tribe Called Quest has been catering to their loyal fans for the past 12 months with a reunion following the passing of their beloved member, Phife Dawg, but their run might officially be coming to an end.

While taking the stage at the 2017 Panorama Festival, Q-Tip announces that their set would be the last for the veteran rap collective.

In the past three weekends, rap legends a Tribe Called Quest have played three festival shows: Pitchfork in Chicago, FYF Fest in Los Angeles, and Panorama in NY.

Q-Tip announced that Phife Dawg's parents were in the audience and then led the crowd in a chant thanking Phife Dawg.

Throughout the set, DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad let Phife Dawg's verses and rhymes play, while the video screen focused on an empty microphone placed at the center of the stage. The group are touring now promoting their final album We Got It From Here... "This is it as Tribe", Q-Tip explains. Thank You 4 Your Service, the album they released previous year, turned out to be as brilliant as it was.

During a 2016 interview with Billboard, when the group was asked what was next for them, it wasn't the answer fans were hoping for.

As a large image of Phife holding his hand in a prayer gesture was displayed on the stage's screens, Q-Tip told the crowd Phife's parents were in the audience and the festival would be their last group show in NY to "honour" their bandmate.
