Due to phenomenal demand Live Nation are excited to announce that Ms. Lauryn Hill has now added Birmingham and Manchester shows to her list of appearances in the UK this November. This follows both of Ms. Hill’s previously announced London O2 Academy Brixton shows selling out in record time. These 4 special shows will see Ms.Lauryn Hill perform on British soil for only the second time in 5 years.
Ms. Lauryn Hill the American singer-songwriter, rapper, record producer, academician and actress established herself in the music world as the lone female member of The Fugees, whose record sales would make them the second biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson. Lauryn launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’. This album earned Ms. Hill a record breaking five Grammy Awards including ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best New Artist’.
Ms. Hill grew up in a home where the sound of music was a household staple and this love affair with music would extended in many different ways from jazz, to soul, to reggae, to rock and classical. These influences in turn would dramatically shape her approach to self expression and see her establish a powerful hybrid of musical influences.
After a four year hiatus post the release of ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ and only one other UK show in the space of five years it is a rare thing indeed to see Ms. Hill perform in the UK and something not to be missed.
