“Ready or Not” The Fugees are reuniting! In anticipation of the 25th anniversary of The Fugees’ debut album, “The Score,” the original members of the group WILL be performing together as they embark on an international reunion tour.
According to Live Nation, the group which consists of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel will be performing their first show together as The Fugees in 15 years. They are going on an international tour that kicks off in New York City at an undisclosed location on Wednesday.
This will mark The Fugees first world tour in 25 years and their first show in 15 years to celebrate the anniversary of 1996’s The Score. The tour is being presented by Diaspora Calling and produced by Live Nation, it will head to 12 cities as it kicks off on September 22nd with an intimate pop-up show in New York City, at an undisclosed location. The remaining shows will start on November 2nd at United Center in Chicago and are scheduled to make stops across the world in Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, Paris, London, and other places before finishing the tour in Africa, with the final shows taking place in Nigeria and Ghana.
In a written statement Lauryn Hill said, “The Fugees have a complex but impactful history. I wasn’t even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention. 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.”
“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,” Wyclef Jean adds.
