The tour will mark the Fugees’ first shows in 15 years, with Live Nation tickets set to go on sale Friday (September 24) at 10 a.m. local time.
The Score celebrated its 25th anniversary earlier this year after being released on February 13, 1996 via Columbia Records. The album featured hit singles such as “Ready or Not” and “Killing Me Softly.”
Peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, the Fugees’ 7x-platinum LP was just the second rap album to receive a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year, and the first for a Hip Hop group. Despite losing out to Celine Dion, they ended up winning Best Rap Album at the 1997 Grammy Awards.
Lauryn Hill initially celebrated the anniversary in February by sharing a throwback photo of the Fugees from that era.
“Thank you to everyone acknowledging the impact of the release of The Score 25 years ago,” she wrote at the time. “The dynamic was not without its complexities, but the art and its impact deserve proper recognition. Special limited edition 25th Anniversary merch collection coming soon.”
