Fugees, the groundbreaking early-90s hip-hop trio comprised of Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, and Pras Michel, has canceled its 2022 reunion tour honoring the 25th anniversary of the group’s second and final album, 1996’s The Score.
“We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen,” the band said in a statement posted to its social media accounts. “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.”
The initial tour announcement came back on September 21st and included a reunion show at New York, NY’s Pier 17 the very next day. While the show in NYC went off without issue, the tour was supposed to start up again on November 2nd at United Center in Chicago, IL, however, Fugees announced a postponement until early 2022 just days before, on October 29th.
“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.” the statement continued.
