THE Fugees have pushed their reunion tour to 2022 to ensure venues will be open to fans in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The band launched The Score anniversary reunion tour last month with a show on The Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York City, and lined up gigs in the U.S., U.K. and Africa.
The concerts were due to start this month in Chicago, but Lauryn Hill, Pras Michel, and Wyclef Jean have postponed them to 2022 to ensure “the best chance that all cities on the tour will be fully open.”
Since announcing the dates, some of the cities have been hit by COVID-related restrictions.
“Dates for our upcoming Fugees 25th Anniversary Tour are moving to early 2022 to ensure the best chance that all cities on the tour will be fully open so we can perform for as many fans as possible,” a band statement reads.
“With so much excitement around the reunion tour, we are also happy to announce that we will be adding more cities and dates! Full details coming soon along with some SPECIAL announcements!”
However, the rescheduled dates have not been revealed.
The delay will allow Pras more time to get his affairs in order – last month, it was reported the international tour dates could be in jeopardy as he fights to get his passport back from U.S. Department of Justice.
