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. Unfortunately, they had to postpone a highly anticipated tour recently.
Last month, the Fugees announced a reunion tour for the 25th anniversary of their classic 1996 album, The Score. They were supposed to head out on a 12-city international tour and was going to begin on September 22 with an intimate pop-up show in New York City at an undisclosed location.
The remaining dates were going 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.
Now it seems the reunion tour has been postponed. The official Fugees Instagram revealed that it was in the best interest of their fans that the tour will be delayed to a future date.
“Dates for our upcoming Fugees 25th Anniversary Tour are moving to early 2022 to ensure the best chance that all cities on the tour are fully open so we can perform for as many fans as possible. With so much excitement around the reunion tour, we are also happy to announce that we will be adding more cities and dates! Full details coming soon along with some SPECIAL announcements.”
The tour will also be the group’s first set of shows in 15 years, whenever it takes place. We will have to wait and see when the 25th-anniversary tour will finally commence as fans are eagerly waiting for it. Odds are, it will be worth the wait.
