    Ready or not, here they come: Fugees are reuniting for their first shows together in 15 years.

    The seminal hip-hop group of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel have announced a 12-city international tour to celebrate the silver anniversary of their landmark album, 1996’s The Score. The first concert takes place tomorrow night (!) — September 22nd — at an undisclosed location in New York City. Further shows are scheduled in Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Miami, as well as in France, the UK, Nigeria, and Ghana.

    “The Fugees have a complex but impactful history. I wasn’t even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention,” Ms. Lauryn Hill said in a statement. “I decided to honor this significant project, its anniversary, and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where we could unite, perform the music we loved, and set an example of reconciliation for the world.”

    “As I celebrate 25 years with the Fugees, my first memory was that we vowed, from the gate, we would not just do music we would be a movement,” added Wyclef Jean. “We would be a voice for the un-heard, and in these challenging times, I am grateful once again, that God has brought us together.”


    Check out the tour’s itinerary below. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 24th at 10:00 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster.
