Lauryn Hill will soon celebrate the 25th anniversary of her debut solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” by performing the album’s hits during a world tour run.
The Grammy winning artist will hit the road this fall on The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour, making stops in 17 cities across the globe.
Hill will be joined by her former group, the Fugees, to co-headline on all U.S. and Canadian dates, marking their first joint tour in years.
Kicking off in Minneapolis on Sept. 8, the show has dates scheduled for New York; Newark, New Jersey; Philadelphia; Chicago; and more North American stops, as well as cities in Australia and New Zealand.
“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 said in a statement about her debut solo album. “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.”
The tour announcement follows a string of recent appearances for Hill, who surprised fans at Mass Appeal’s Aug. 11 Hip-Hop 50th Anniversary show in New York, where she performed a medley of hits alongside rapper Nas. In June, Hill reunited with the Fugees for the first time since 2021 for her headlining show at the Roots Picnic in Philadelphia.
Tickets for The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th Anniversary Tour go on sale to the public starting Aug. 25.
