It’s been two decades since Lauryn Hill made history with her iconic debut album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. To celebrate the 20-year milestone anniversary the Grammy Award-winning artist is hitting the road this summer.
“Ms. Lauryn Hill Celebrating the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill Tour” kicks off July 5 in Virginia Beach and then travel to major markets including Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Las Vegas, San Diego, New Orleans, and more before wrapping up in St. Louis on Oct. 5.
L Boogie uses her platform to raise money and awareness for frontline charity initiatives through touring. A portion of the ticket sales go towards the MLH Foundation, which directly contributes support for education, health, agriculture, technology, and community based businesses and development initiatives throughout the Diaspora.
Speaking about her breakout album Ms. Hill notes, “This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence. It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I loved and believed deeply in my community’s ability to both love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement.”
She continued, “Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with love and optimism at the helm.”
Ms. Lauryn Hill is experiencing a rejuvenation of sorts right now. Cardi B’s “Be Careful” and Drake’s “Nice for What” both sample her Miseducation classic “Ex-Factor.” “Careful” is sitting at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100, while “Nice” is already #1.
Tickets and VIP experiences for the tour go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 20 at 10am local time at LiveNation.com. More details will be announced soon, including international dates, as well as the full lineup with Special Guest performers at each show on the tour.
