The Fugees made a name for themselves as being one of the most influential and iconic hip-hop groups in the history of the industry. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel helped shape the group into what it was.
The Fugees is set to reunite for the 25th anniversary of their classic 1996 album, The Score. They will be heading out on a 12-city international tour, which will begin on September 22 with an intimate pop-up show in New York City at an undisclosed location.
The remaining dates will take place between November and December, with performances taking place in Chicago, Oakland, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Newark and Washington, DC. After that, they will go abroad to London, along with shows in Nigeria and Ghana. Lauryn Hill even issued a statement regarding the upcoming reunion tour.
“The Fugees have a complex but impactful history. I wasn’t even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention. I decided to honor this significant project, its anniversary, and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where we could unite, perform the music we loved, and set an example of reconciliation for the world.”
The tour will also be the group’s first set of shows in 15 years as Live Nation tickets will be going on sale on Friday (September 24) at 10 a.m. local time. We will have to wait and see just how successful the reunion tour will turn out to be.
