Lauryn Hill Sets Tour for 20th Anniversary of ‘Miseducation’

Live Nation has announced that Lauryn Hill will celebrate the 20th anniversary of her monumental debut album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill with a tour across North America.

According to Pitchfork, the 42-year-old will perform the album live and in its entirety. The Miseducation was released in 1998 after Ms. Hill left The Fugees. The album sold 8 million copies, earned the rapper five Grammy awards and became the first hip-hop project to win Grammy Album of the Year.

The concert is set to open on July 5 in Virginia Beach and run through October. Tickets go on sale Friday at noon on Ticketmaster.
