Fugees Cancel Reunion Tour Due to COVID-19

Fugees are canceling their reunion tour due to the pandemic. “The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe,” the trio explained. “An idea sparked to honor and celebrate this 25th anniversary of The Score but we see now it may not currently be our time for revisiting this past work.” Find the band’s full statement below.

Fugees announced their reunion tour back in September, with plans to play shows in November and December 2021. Not long after, the group pushed the tour back to 2022 “to ensure the best chance that all cities on the tour are fully open so [Fugees] can perform for as many fans as possible.”

Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel ended up playing just one reunion show. Read about the New York performance in “The Fugees’ Reunion Show Felt Like a Miracle” on the Pitch.

Fugees:

We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen. The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe. An idea sparked to honor and celebrate this 25th anniversary of The Score but we see now it may not currently be our time for revisiting this past work. We’re grateful for the special night we did get to share with some of you in New York, with that rare live moment. If opportunity, public safety, and scheduling allow, we hope to be able to revisit this again sometime soon. THANK YOU for all your love and support throughout the years.
