NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Lauryn Hill is celebrating twenty years of her anthemic debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill with a newly announced World Tour produced by Live Nation.
The GRAMMY® Award-winning artist will bring The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary Tour to the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans on Wednesday October 3rd. Tickets and VIP experiences go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, April 20 at 10 a.m. at LiveNation.com.
According to Live Nation, Hill uses her platform to raise money and awareness for frontline charity initiatives through touring. A portion of the ticket sales go towards the MLH Fund, which directly contributes support for education, health, agriculture, technology, and community based businesses and development initiatives throughout the Diaspora.
"This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence. It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date," Hill said. "I Loved and believed deeply in my community's ability to both Love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement. Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the Love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with Love and optimism at the helm."
Exclusive VIP experiences will be available for all tour dates. VIP experiences include a meet and greet with Hill, complete with photo opp and autograph signing, as well as a package where fans will have an opportunity to watch a portion of the show from on stage.
VIP experiences can be purchased as an upgrade when buying tickets. Limited edition specialty merch items, designed by Ms. Hill, will also be available at all shows and online.
