Lauryn Hill Australian Tour Dates Announced

Written by Nastassia Baroni on March 24, 2014

Following today’s announcement that the hip hop luminary will be making her Australian debut as a part of the Vivid LIVE 2014 lineup, Ms. Lauryn Hill will also put her r’n’b prowess on display across the country, announcing extra headline shows in Melbourne and Perth this coming May.

The iconic American singer–songwriter, rapper, producer, and actress was first catapulted into the public’s consciousness alongside Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel as a member of 90s hip hop outfit The Fugees, spawning the global hit Killing Me Softly and becoming the biggest selling r’n’b act worldwide, since Michael Jackson.

Next came Hill’s debut solo album, 1998’s pioneering The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill that would see the then 23 year-old achieve legendary status. The artful blend of hip-hop, pop, r’n’b, doo-wop and reggae fused with socially-conscious lyrics, helped Hill make history by winning five Grammy awards, becoming the first rap/hip-hop artist to win Album Of The Year and also becoming the first female solo artist to win five awards in one night.

Now, the five-time Grammy Award-winner will be revisiting her iconic songbook in what promises to be two unmissable performances at Sydney Opera House for Vivid LIVE 2014, featuring electrifying full band jams and rare a cappella renditions of her classic canon. Preceding those shows, Ms. Hill will also perform an extra two special gigs, one each in Melbourne and Perth. Details below.
