The Grammy award-winning singer Lauryn Hill is returning to the stage for a new string of shows in celebration of her glorified debut album. Hill announced the plans for “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour.”
The tour which will feature co-headliners The Fugees and Koffee, will begin at Mystic Lake in Minneapolis on September 8 and will travel to 17 cities around the world from New York City to Sydney, Australia before she wraps up the tour in Seattle, Wa. in November.
“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 about the album and its impact on the world. “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.”
Hill previously announced dates in Australia and also confirmed her attendance at the Global Citizen Festival next month. Now she’s revealing even more dates to celebrate the powerful album’s anniversary.
The New Jersey native has been popping up at several major concerts this summer like Hip Hop 50 Live with Nas. She also reunited with The Fugees’ Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel at The Roots Picnic. and performed at Mary J. Blige’s Strength of a Woman Festival.
