Lauryn Hill sets ‘Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ 20th anniversary tour
Lauryn Hill will celebrate the 20th anniversary of her landmark debut solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” with a North American concert tour.
Billed as “Ms. Lauryn Hill Performing the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” the extensive concert trek opens July 5 in Virginia Beach and concludes in St. Louis on Oct. 5.
It includes a Sept. 9 show at Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre at San Diego State University, which — at least for now — is her only Southern California tour date announced thus far.
All tour dates and ticket information appears below.
Hill will perform “Miseducation” live in its entirety. Her first and most successful solo release after she left The Fugees, the 1998 album sold 8 million copies.
It earned five Grammy Awards a year later and became the first hip-hop release in history to win Grammy Album of the Year honor. “Miseducation” also yielded a number of hit singles, including “Doo Wop (That Thing),” “Ex-Factor” and “Everything Is Everything.”
Hill’s debut solo headlining tour in 1999 included a San Diego show at Coors (now Mattress Firm Amphitheatre). On Saturday, she performed a tribute to Nina Simone as part of the late Simone’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Tickets go on sale Friday at noon at ticketmaster.com and by phone at (800) 745-3000. Pre-sales for Citi card holders and VIP packages begin today, Tuesday, at 10 a.m. Several more pre-sales begin Thursday.
