Lauryn Hill Plots Intimate East Coast Tour


Lauryn Hill will head to the East Coast next
month for an intimate stripped-back six-date tour dubbed the Small Axe Acoustic Performance Series.

The R&B star, who will be performing in front of crowds of just 250-500 people at each show, will first take to the stage in 2015 at Washington, D.C.’s Howard Theatre on February 13.

After a second show at the historic venue the following night, the 39-year-old will travel to New York for gigs at Brooklyn’s Rough Trade on Feb 17, the Highline Ballroom on Feb 20 and 23 and the Blue Note Jazz Club on Feb 25, performing both in the afternoon and the evening at the latter.

Lauryn Hill tickets are currently up for grabs on TicketIQ for her two performances at the Highline Ballroom, both of which have an average get-in price of $214, but be sure to keep checking back as more become available.

The eight-time Grammy winner famously showed up over half an hour late for her festival appearances at last year’s Bonnaroo and New Orleans’ Voodoo Music Experience, but quickly made it up to the waiting crowds with lengthy sets covering the entirety of her 20-year career.

Alongside all the highlights from her seminal 1998 solo debut album, The Miseducation of…, including singles “Ex-Factor,” “Everything is Everything” and the chart-topping “Doo Wop (That Thing),” Hill also performed a string of Bob Marley cover versions (“Turn Your Lights Down Low,” “Could You Be Loved,” “Is This Love”), the biggest hits from Fugees’ back catalogue (“Killing Me Softly,” “Ready Or Not,” “Fu-Gee-La”), and the new track, “Black Rage,” she dedicated to the protests in Ferguson.
