0

Here are the details of who played what at Africa Express Roskilde.  This is our pre-show set list, written in haste after 2 days rehearsals and pasted up backstage minutes before a 5-hour show. Please excuse any inaccuracies but with Africa Express, things always change at the last minute.  It was an epic show, so huge thanks to the amazing artists involved and a brilliant audience for joining us on the latest stop with Africa Express.
