Why See Lauryn Hill?
One of the most revered female MCs of the past 25 years, Lauryn Hill's status has grown to almost mythic proportions. She will be taking her mall Axe Acoustic Performance Series mini tour on the road to hits the Radio City Music Hall in New York, NY, Closed February 25, 2017
Rising to fame with the hip-hop trio The Fugees during the mid Nineties, Hill became a household name with the release of the group's second album The Score. Containing Killing Me Softly and Ready or Not, the record was a landmark melding of rap, soul and reggae, and proved hugely influential in its use of sampling. Hill's 1998 solo debut The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill followed soon after and was an even greater success, reaching number one in the Billboard charts and earning the still only 23 year-old singer, an unprecedented five Grammy Awards.
LEGAL WOES AND COMEBACK
Hill has experienced her fair share of personal highs and lows during the subsequent years, which included a spell in prison for tax evasion, as well as sporadically releasing new material and embarking on short tours. 2013 marked her full re-emergence into the public eye, with a homecoming gig in the Bowery Ballroom in New York. Now, with rumours of a new record in the works, Hill is well and truly back, with an extensive North American tour planned from May through August. The chance to witness one of this generation's most gifted artists returning to the fold is not to be missed.
Performance date: 25 February 2017
