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

    • dj rod

      It’s not that we think it’s funny.If the people that are around her aren’t sayin anything to her about getting help and they think she’s o.k to go out and do crazy shit,she’s fair game.Somebody should’ve said some shit by now.


    I don’t know what L Boogie was on but it had to be some powerful shit. She fell off way back in 1999 after “THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL” album. That album was the shit too!!

    Thats fucked up though because she had a lot of fans that were feeling her music and she just fell off the face of the earth. I know everybody has there problems but damn!!!!


    Personal life:

    Hill and Wyclef Jean dated through the majority of the Fugees time together, a relationship that friends have called “complicated.”[5] In the summer of 1996, she met Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae music icon Bob Marley, and openly had a relationship with him. Wyclef knew about this relationship. Lauryn soon became pregnant by Marley, who himself was already married. She kept the information about who the baby’s father was a secret to almost everyone; Jean assumed the baby was his when he first visited her in the hospital.[5]

    Though she refers to Marley as her husband, the two appear to have never been legally married.[5] Marley never divorced his first wife Geraldine Khawly, whom he married in 1993 while a sophomore at University of Miami, Florida. With Khawly he has two children: daughter Eden Marley and son Nicolas Marley [7][8]. A friend of the couple told Rolling Stone that they ignore the issue.[5] Marley’s personal MySpace account lists his relationship status as “single”,[9] but says he and Hill are “spiritually together.”[10] The two do not currently live together.[10]

    The couple have five children: son Zion David Hill-Marley, daughter Selah Louise Marley, son Joshua Marley, and son John Marley. The couple’s fifth child is a baby girl who was born in early 2008;[11][12] [13] Marley told People magazine that although the baby is 7 months old, she is still without a name.[10] Since 1998, Hill has lived in both the Caribbean and an upscale hotel in Miami.[14][5] In August 2008, it was reported that Hill is now living with her mother and children in her hometown of South Orange, New Jersey.[10]
