Evan Malcolm – Ms. Lauryn Hill
Ms. Lauren Hill plays Bluesfest Byron Bay at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in Australia March 30.
Ms. Lauryn Hill’s star-studded 20th anniversary tour celebrating her groundbreaking The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill album is being delayed or called off in a number of cities.
Media outlets report Live Nation released a statement via Facebook claiming the changes were due to “production issues,” though that statement has since been removed.
Based on information available through Ticketmaster, the following shows have been canceled, with refunds available at point of purchase:
July 26 – Raleigh, N.C., – Red Hat Amphitheater
July 29 – St. Petersburg, Fla. – Al Lang Stadium
Aug. 2 – Jacksonville, Fla. – Daily’s Place
Aug. 8 – Holmdel, N.J. – PNC Bank Arts Center
Aug. 16 – Virginia Beach, Va., – Veterans United Home Loands Amphitheater at Virginia Beach
Aug. 17 – Bristow, Va. – Jiffy Lube Live
These shows were to feature a variety of special guests including Nas, Big Boi, Dave East, Raury, and Daniel Bambaata Marley. The Virginia shows had already both been rescheduled once, according to the original itinerary on her website.
The following dates have been rescheduled:
July 31 (Now Oct. 15) – Miami, Fla., – Bayfront Park Amphitheater
Aug. 3 (Now Oct. 13) – Atlanta, Ga. – State Bank Amphitheatre At Chastain Park
Aug. 5 (Now Oct. 11) – Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Municipal Auditorium
Ms. Lauryn Hill has a history of showing up late to shows or not showing at all, but nothing she does can affect her status as a legendary figure in hip-hop and R&B. The Miseducation tour kicked off earlier this month and promises to include
Dave Chappelle, SZA, M.I.A., De La Soul, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, A$AP Rocky and many more.
