Despite Lauryn Hill’s 25th anniversary tour for ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ not even beginning yet, due to popular demand Hill has announced 10 additional dates onto the tour.
Hill announced the new dates yesterday, sharing with her fans that she will be making 10 more stops throughout North America this winter. Alongside her for part of the tour will be the Fugees. Hill recently made a statement emphasizing the importance of the anniversary tour, explaining the impact that ‘Miseducation’ and the Fugees have had on fans and the industry.
Hill said: “I’ve almost felt compelled to carry a torch or to keep a light shining reading the continual performance of the ‘Miseducation’ album. . . I believe there’s been a reason for that — and the Fugees coming back together for performances too feels like unfinished business we’re destined to handle. The connections are real and uncanny, and the magic and synergy between us has not been deterred by time.”
“I believe the messages that we and the art we made embody something moving, meaningful and important for us and for the world. We gave voice and image to possibilities that emblazoned so many musical directions after us. As we were inspired, we also inspired countless artists who have shown up to express themselves in this musical space. Both the ‘Miseducation’ and the Fugees’ material challenged and expanded convention, by paying homage to the past, while richly embracing the present, and emblazoning the trail for the future. We represent not just ourselves but our influences and our peers who took art, culture and inspiration very seriously — who reshaped the landscape for ourselves and for those who would follow after us. I’m grateful to be able to celebrate this classic material and re-present it to an audience in this time.”
