Lauryn Hill Plans Short Euro Tour
Reclusive Grammy award winning rapper/singer Lauryn Hill is set to go on a 10-date European tour this July.
The Associated Press reports that as part of her trip the former Fugee will headline the Stockholm Jazz Festival in Sweden. The five-day event –among the country’s largest concerts- is expected to bring in close to 30,000 spectators.
Hill was also listed as one of the 1,000 acts to be included in this year’s Montreux Jazz Fest in Switzerland. Scheduled for July 11 at the Stravinsky Auditorium, Hill will join a lineup that includes the Black Eyed Peas, Herbie Hancock and B.B. King, among others, according to Reuters.
The New Jersey native hasn’t hit the stage since her jam packed free performance in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, back in August 2007. The show drew criticism from the crowd after she showed up hours late and forgot song lyrics causing many people to leave early.
As of press time Hill’s remaining tour dates are unavailable. – Elan Mancini
