The Fugees are reuniting for the first time in fifteen years for a world tour.
The world tour will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their critically-acclaimed album, The Score. It’s the first time the trio has performed together in more than 15 years. Members Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel will tour across 12 cities across the globe.
“The Fugees have a complex but impactful history,” says Hill. “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,” she continues.
Wyclef Jean adds, “As I celebrate 25 years with the Fugees, my 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.”
The Fugees briefly reunited in 2005 for the single, “Take It Easy.” There’s no confirmation if the Fugees reunion tour will result in new music.
The first performance in NYC will be recorded and shown as part of Global Citizen Live. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, Sept 24th at 10 AM PST.
