Fugees Recording New Album, Tour Kicks Off in August

Last year, during a reunion tour with the Fugees celebrating the 25th anniversary of Lauryn Hill’s iconic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean hinted at the possibility of the group recording a new album together.

According to The New York Post, this much-anticipated reunion is indeed going to happen.

The Fugees famously disbanded in 1997. Lauryn Hill went on to release The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which is widely regarded as one of the best albums of 1998. Meanwhile, Pras Michel and Wyclef Jean pursued solo careers. Pras had a moderate hit with the single “Ghetto Supastar (That Is What You Are).” Wyclef, on the other hand, remained highly active, producing, writing, performing, and scoring multiple platinum records, solidifying his status as the most industrious Fugees member.

In November 2023, Wyclef reflected on the skepticism surrounding the group’s reunion, stating, “I remember people were saying, ‘The Fugees will never get back together.’ So, in the words of The Carnival, ‘Say what, say what, anything can happen.’”

Live Nation has recently revealed that the group will embark on a 21-date tour later this summer. Titled “Ms. Lauryn Hill & The Fugees – The Celebration Continues,” the tour kicks off in Tampa at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheater on August 9 and concludes in Amsterdam at the Ziggo Dome on October 22. Lauryn Hill’s son, YG Marley, is scheduled to be the opening act for the tour.

Tickets for the tour went on sale on June 28 and can be purchased through LiveNation.com.
