The legendary Lauryn Hill is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her iconic album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” with her biggest tour yet. In true throwback fashion, she will also be reuniting with her Fugees group members for all U.S. and Canadian stops. This upcoming tour will be one of the biggest ever, and rightfully so, celebrating an album that defied boundaries and has left an unmistakable mark on music history.
“The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill” transformed hip-hop entirely. Its groundbreaking fusion of R&B, rap, and pop, was never seen before, and definitely not by a female emcee. Hill knocked down all barriers for women in rap, proving not only could that she could hang lyrically, but that a woman could dominate the genre entirely. And we can’t forget about all the records the project broke. It was the first hip hop album to win a Grammy, as the singer walked away with five that night after earning 10 nominations.
What makes this tour even more exciting is the reemergence of Hill’s former group, the Fugees. After an unforeseen halt to their intended 25th-anniversary tour for the monumental album “The Score” last year, the group is back on the scene with Hill for the North American leg of the tour. The reunion is anticipated to be an unforgettable journey into the heart of their iconic sound.
This will be a 17-stop journey, landing in arenas all over the globe. Whether you are in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the United Center in Chicago or even the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, this is a show that cannot be missed. The excitement doesn’t stop in the Americas, there will be international performances sprinkled in across Australia, New Zealand, and more.
