The Fugees Cancel Tour Due To COVID Concerns!!!!!
The Fugees had planned to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their group. But due to the ongoing COVID crisis, the shows are canceled.
The Fugees Planned Reunion Is Officially Over
The Fugees, who consist of Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, and Pras Michel, have canceled their upcoming reunion tour.
For the 25th anniversary of their debut album, The Score, the trio had planned to tour together to commemorate it.
However, the plans are scrapped.
According to a press release distributed by the group on January 21st, the reason given was the rising cases of COVID.
“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.”
The group has been vibing together since last year.
Pras Michel said about the upcoming tour, “what the culture really needed.”
“We let the music and our vibe and energy just naturally come out, then we heard the band doing their thing, putting it together and vibing. And it just started to feel like those old moments that made us so happy. Making music and just making people smile, so that made us smile too. It just made us feel good.” – Pras Michel
Adding to his comments, Pras said –
“One thing I would say about us is that everything has to feel organic. It’s not about anything but that. Because if it ain’t feel right for even one of us, I don’t think we would’ve been able to pull it off.”
The international tour was to cover 12 cities.
Even though the tour has been nixed, fans were able to experience The Fugees during an intimate pop-up show in NY City.
Thanking their fans, the group is hopeful about a future tour…when “opportunity, public safety, and scheduling allow.
