On Tuesday (August 22) Ms. Lauryn Hill announced she is going on tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her landmark album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour is a 17-date engagement that kicks off September 8 in Minneapolis, MN at Mystic Lake and will hit cities including Newark, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles before wrapping up November 9 in Seattle, WA at the Climate Pledge Arena. As an added bonus, the Fugees will reunite for their first long-delayed tour in years as co-headliners all US and Canadian dates.
Besides the Fugees classics, Ms. Hill be performing her debut album in its entirety. “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is and was a love song to my parents, my family, my people, my musical and cultural forebears, my teachers, my loves, my Creator,” said Ms. Hill in a statement. “I wrote love songs and protest songs— (still love songs) about the subjects and interests that inspired and moved me. I was confident that what inspired me would resonate with an audience that had been led to believe that songs of that kind could only live in the past.”
While fans are surely excited to see hil perform her certified classic in person, social media, per usual, has its fair share of jokes, and concern, about Hill’s now well-documented and infamous penchant for tardiness when it comes to performing.
