Twenty years ago, Ms. Lauryn Hill unleashed her debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, an iconic effort with enduring classics that can still be heard today on Billboard Hot 100 hits like Cardi B's "Be Careful" and Drake's "Nice for What." To celebrate the multi-platinum album's 20th anniversary, Hill is taking the album back on the road for a full 20-date tour.
Hill will play the album in full during the anniversary tour, which will begin at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia on July 5. From there, the "Ex-Factor" singer will bring her tour to Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Miami, Atlanta and plenty more cities. She will also hit the stage at the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago, where she'll be headlining along with fellow legendary artist Chaka Khan on Sunday night. Tickets can be purchased here.
Miseducation, Hill's first and only studio album, was released in 1998 and soared to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with the help of her smash single "Doo Wop (That Thing)."
This past weekend, Lauryn honored the late Nina Simone at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony with a medley of songs that included "Ne Me Quitte Pas" and Simone's "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair" and "Feeling Good."
