Tampa's Fugees Reunion Show Moved to Summer by Lauryn Hill

Ready or not, Ms. Lauryn Hill has rescheduled plans to bring The Fugees reunion to Tampa.

Although she recently postponed a Bay area show just 51 days after announcing it, the iconic 49-year-old rapper, singer, and artist says she’s feeling better and just announced a 21-date tour that will not only celebrate her Grammy-winning catalog but also the music of The Fugees with whom she arrived on the scene in the early ’90s.

Tickets to see Ms. Lauryn Hill with The Fugees—including Pras and Wyclef Jean—play Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on Friday, Aug. 9 are not yet priced, but go on sale to the public on Friday, June 28. VIP package presales start tomorrow, Tuesday, June 25.

A press release from LiveNation says Hill’s son, YG Marley, will open the show. The only other Florida date on the run is on Sunday, Aug. 11 in West Palm Beach.

The gig is in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Hill’s landmark 1998 album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which was nominated for 10 Grammys in 1999 (it won five).

The appearance of The Fugees is notable, too, since one of the group’s members, Pras, still awaits sentencing after being “convicted in a federal court in Washington, D.C., on 10 counts related to charges that include conspiracy, witness tampering, and failing to register as an agent of China,” according to NPR. Complicating matters further for the Grammy-winning rapper is the fact that his lawyer recently pleaded guilty to leaving evidence to Bloomberg News.

Hill was supposed to play Amalie Arena in December 2023, but was forced to cancel, citing vocal strain. She promised to find a new date, and now Tampa has its lost one back.

Ms. Lauryn Hill reschedules The Fugees reunion show in Tampa, celebrating her Grammy-winning catalog and The Fugees’ music. Tickets on sale June 28.
