Lauryn Hill Announces Spring Tour, Joins Twitter
Ms. Lauryn Hill has announced a series of upcoming spring tour dates, as part of her Moving Target: Extended Playdate Series tour. The new 12-city jaunt will kick off in Orlando, Fla. on Mar. 16 and includes an Apr. 15 stop at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, before wrapping up in New Orleans May 7.
Hill, who performed her last series of shows this past winter in New York, Boston and Miami has been adamant about giving fans a more memorable concert experience by performing in intimate venues. "One of the benefits of playing venues smaller than the ones I'm used to allows me the opportunity to not only reconnect with my supporters but to expose them to a portion of the musical journey I've been on which the world for the most part has not had access to," Hill said in a statement. "It's an exciting and REAL process which these audiences will get to witness."
A new Twitter account -- @MsHillMvngTrgt -- has been launched in order to provide news and tour information for fans, but no updates have been posted as yet.

3/16: House of Blues, Orlando, Fla.
