No Roots for you, Cincinnati.

Questlove giveth and Questlove taketh away.

The Roots have canceled the group's Cincinnati show that was scheduled for this Friday, Sept. 3, at the Andrew J Brady ICON Music Center. An Aug. 31 email from Music & Event Management (MEMI) says that the cancellation is due to "scheduling conflicts."

Ticketholders can get refunds from their point of purchase, the email says.

As of press time, the band's social media accounts don't mention the cancellation, and the Cincinnati show still appears on the list of tour dates on the Roots website.

The Roots kicked off its "All the Way Live" tour on Aug. 21 in Chautauqua, New York.

The Grammy-winning R&B/Hip-Hop/Funk band rose to prominence in the late '90s and early 2000s and now serves as the house band on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
