After releasing their first single in nearly a decade, the Fugees continue their reunion with a set of European tour dates planned for the end of the year. The tour will open Nov. 30 in Vienna and over the following three weeks will make stops in Finland, France, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom, with their last gig scheduled Dec. 20 in Switzerland.
U.S. tour plans have not yet been announced.
As previously reported, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michael are currently working on their follow-up to 1996’s “The Score” (Ruffhouse/Columbia). The highly anticipated disc is expected in early 2006. Last week, they released the single “Take It Easy” via Apple’s iTunes music store.
The Fugees first made their reunion plans known with a surprise performance a little more than year ago at the Dave Chappelle Block Party in New York. In June, the hip-hop trio performed at the 2005 BET Awards as the unannounced opening act.
