Fans may be ready but The Fugees are not going on tour this year.
On Oct. 29, the “Ooh La La La” hitmakers released a statement through their official Instagram account announcing that their highly anticipated tour would be pushed back to 2022 to ensure that “all cities on the tour will be fully open” due to a few of the venues being restricted because of COVID-19 measures.
“With so much excitement around the reunion tour, we are also happy to announce that we will be adding more cities and dates! Full details coming soon along with some SPECIAL announcements,” the statement added.
Back in September, Fugees fans were reeling with excitement after the famed late 90s hip hop trio announced that they were reuniting for an international tour. The influential hip-hop group comprised of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel, launched the world tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic 1996 sophomore album The Score.
Now, unfortunately the tour is being postponed until 2022.
Following the announcement, a few fans joked about whether Lauryn Hill had something to do with the tour’s rescheduling. The star has become infamous over the years for showing up hours late to her concerts.
Looks like COVID not Ms Hill is to blame for the delay.
