When it was announced last Fall, Fugees Reunion Tour tickets quickly became the most desired item for music lovers regardless of genre. Initially it was scheduled to run through the months of November and December in 2021, but that was later pushed back to 2022.
Now we are all learning that the tour has been officially canceled. The news came on Friday, January 21st via Lauryn Hill’s social media platforms. She shared the following statement.
“We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen. The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe. An idea sparked to honor and celebrate this 25th anniversary of ‘The Score’ but we see now it may not currently be our time for revisiting this past work. We’re grateful for the special night we did get to share with some of you in New York, with that rare live moment. If opportunity, public safety, and scheduling allow, we hope to be able to revisit this again sometime soon. Thank you for all of your love and support throughout the years.”
