Grammy-winning R&B star Ms. Lauryn Hill has announced “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour” in commemoration of her 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
The 17-date tour will hit arenas around the world, including Brooklyn’s Barclays, Chicago’s United Center, The Kia Forum in Los Angeles as well as in Australia, New Zealand, and more.
Meanwhile, Hill’s band Fugees will co-headline each of the 11 U.S. and Canadian dates.
“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 shared. “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.”
She continued, “I loved music, I loved people, I truly felt grateful to God for my life, and genuinely blessed to have a platform where I could share wisdom and perspective through music. I felt a charge to challenge the idea that certain kinds of expression and/or certain kinds of people didn’t belong in certain places. I loved showing what could work or happen provided there was imagination, creativity and LOVE leading the way.”
