The Fugees long-awaited reunion tour has been postponed until 2022.
Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel announced on Instagram that the tour is being pushed back “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!”
Following their first concert in 15 years on September 22 in New York City, the tour was set to kick off November 2 in Chicago. The trio was also scheduled to perform in Oakland, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Newark, and Washington, D.C. They then planned travel abroad to Paris, London, Nigeria and Ghana.
The tour is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Fugees’ landmark 1996 album, The Score. When the group announced the tour in September, Hill explained why they were finally getting back together.
“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.”
Wyclef added, “As I celebrate 25 years with the Fugees, my first memory was that we vowed, from the gate, we would not just do music we would be a movement.”We would be a voice for the un-heard, and in these challenging times, I am grateful once again, that God has brought us together.”
