We suggest that you check outside to make sure pigs aren't flying. Why you ask? Because it looks like the Fugees are getting the band back together. This year marks the 25th anniversary of their seminal album The Score and the hip-hop trio has decided to come together to give the world what they want: a reunion tour!
Ms. Lauryn Hill, Pras and Wyclef Jean will hit the road this fall for a world tour in celebration of the milestone. The reunion will actually kick off tomorrow (September 22nd) with a pop-up show in New York City at a yet-to-be-disclosed location. They'll take a short break after that, resuming in November with dates in Chicago, Oakland, LA, Atlanta, Miami, Newark and D.C. They take things international after that, hitting up venues in Paris and London before going to the Motherland with dates in Nigeria and Ghana.
Of the tour, Lauryn said via press release, "The Fugees have a complex but impactful history…. 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 also chimed in, saying, "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."
Tickets are now available via Ticketmaster (though some of the venues internationally have yet to be confirmed). Color us excited about a prospect we didn't have on our 2021 scorecards at all. Check out the list of official dates below.
