“Ready or Not” The Fugees are reuniting!
In anticipation of the 25th anniversary of The Fugees’ debut album, The Score, the group’s original members will perform 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 perform 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.
The reunion will mark The Fugees’ first world tour in 25 years and their first show in 15 years to celebrate the anni1996’sy 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 Sept. 22 with an intimate pop-up show in New York City. The remaining shows will start on Nov. 2 at the United Center in Chicago with scheduled stops across the world in Los Angeles; Miami; Newark, New Jersey; 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, “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 unheard, and in these challenging times, I am grateful once again that God has brought us together,” Jean added.
