Ready Or Not -- Ms. Lauryn Hill and the Fugees are getting set to embark on a global 25th anniversary tour in celebration of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill this fall with the Fugees reuniting to co-headline the planned North American dates -- including stops at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and L.A.’s Kia Forum.

Lauryn Hill is celebrating 25 years since the release of her iconic 1998 solo debut with her former group the Fugees getting the band back together to help in the festivities. These North American dates will be extra special for fans who were unable to see the Fugees on their abruptly canceled The Score 25th anniversary tour last year.
Hill’s 17-date trek is currently scheduled to hit arenas in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, with the Fugees joining only on the U.S. and Canadian dates due to member Pras' legal woes.
Tickets will be available starting with presales on Wednesday, August 23 at 10AM local time through Thursday, August 24 at 10PM local. The public on-sale begins Friday, August 25 at 10AM local time. Take a look at the full list of dates below.
In a press release, Lauryn says, “'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. 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."
Hill adds, “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.”
