“Ooh la la la, it’s the way that we rock when we’re doing their thing, ooh la la la, it’s the natural la that the refugees bring” and it appears that The Fugees are about to do their thing again! It’s been 15 years since we’ve seen Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel on stage together, but 2021 is about to change that since one of the pinnacle hip-hop groups from the 90’s are setting out on tour, to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of their 1996 album, “The Score“.
Officially set to kick off November 2nd in Chicago, IL, the group will give a preview performance on Sept 22nd, which will also double as a live taping for their appearance on the Global Citizen Festival. As of right now, the extremely limited run will only visit 7 cities in North America, with Washington, DC, Atlanta, and Los Angeles being amongst the list, before they take the trek overseas to London UK, Paris France and then wrapping up with two dates in Africa.
“The Fugees have a complex but impactful history,” Hill said in a press release. “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.”
Jean 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.”
