Lauryn Hill Announces The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour
On Tuesday (Aug. 22), Lauryn Hill revealed she is set to take her show on the road. The former Fugees front woman will be going on a 17-date tour titled The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour. Beginning next month, on Sept. 8, Ms. Hill will perform five dates in Australia as well as 12 North American dates in cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia and more. The Fugees will also reunite for several of the show dates.
“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,” Lauryn Hill explained in a press release about the seminal offering. “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.”
She continues: “I loved music, I loved people, I truly felt grateful to God for my life, and genuinely blessed to have a platform where I could share wisdom and perspective through music. I felt a charge to challenge the idea that certain kinds of expression and/or certain kinds of people didn’t belong in certain places. I loved showing what could work or happen provided there was imagination, creativity and LOVE leading the way.”
Presale tickets for the tour begin on Wednesday for Citi cardmembers until Thursday (Aug. 24) via www.citientertainment.com. General tickets can be purchased beginning on Friday (Aug. 25).
