Lauryn Hill will commemorate the 25th anniversary of her iconic album, “The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill,” with a global tour.
And she’s bringing the Fugees along for the ride.
Hill expressed her deep connection to the album in a recent press release.
“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. 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.”
The Fugees were initially slated for a reunion tour last year celebrating the 25th anniversary of their album “The Score.”
Lauryn Hill and The Fugees Are Back Again
They will now be the opening act for most of the North American leg of Hill’s tour.
Although the Fugees’ tour was eventually called off, the group has made sporadic appearances.
For instance, they performed at the Roots Picnic in June.
For the Australian segment of the tour, Lauryn Hill will be accompanied by Koffee as the opening act.
