Fugees announce reunion world tour, 25 years after The Score
Hip-hop group the Fugees is set to tour around the world to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their acclaimed album The Score.
The dates will mark their first shows in 15 years, reuniting Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel and taking them to 12 cities across the world.
“The Fugees have a complex but impactful history,” said Hill in a statement.
“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 Jean said.
The first performance will take place in New York at an undisclosed location on Wednesday 22 September, which will then be recorded and shown as part of Global Citizen Live, a global broadcast event calling on world leaders to defend the planet and defeat poverty.
The group is also partnering with Global Citizen to work on philanthropic initiatives around the tour.
