The legendary singer, songwriter, rapper and producer Lauryn Hill will celebrate the 25th anniversary of her iconic debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill with a world tour beginning this fall.
Hill’s group Fugees, who abruptly canceled a tour centered around their 1996 classic The Score last year, will open the American dates, which kicks off on October 17 in Newark, New Jersey, and also includes stops in Brooklyn, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Toronto, Chicago, Fort Worth, Denver, Los Angeles, Oakland, and more.
“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,” Hill said in a press release. “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 tour will also land in Australia and New Zealand, featuring Koffee as the opening act.
