Lauryn Hill Announces First Post-Prison Show in New York
Lauryn Hill has been out of jail for a little over a month and she’s already planning to get right back to work.
The ex-Fugees member has announced she’ll perform at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on Nov. 27. This is her second New York show this year — she performed at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg in May.
Hill will perform two shows next week — one at 6PM and the other at 10:30pm. Tickets are currently selling for $100 through Ticketmaster.
The announced date is the first of a tour that’s set to run until Dec. 31. U.S. Magistrate Court Judge Madeline Cox Arleo is allowing the rapper to go on tour, postponing her house arrest until New Year’s Day 2014. However, the tour dates have yet to be announced.
This year, Hill’s career has been resurrected after a lengthy hiatus. She released a new song, ‘Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix),’ in May before serving three months for tax evasion. ‘Consumerism,’ her latest single, debuted on the eve of her prison release. Neither was received with much critical acclaim.
