LAURYN HILL ANNOUNCES FIRST LONDON SHOW IN 5 YEARS AT THE INDIGO2
Wednesday 21st March 2012 – Live Nation are excited to announce that Ms. Lauryn Hill will be playing a rare, one-off show in the UK this April 14th at the Indigo2 in London. This special show will see Ms. Lauryn Hill perform on UK soil for the first time in 5 years and will go on sale Friday 23rd March at 9am, available from www.livenation.co.uk
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 a five year gap since her last UK performance it is a rare thing indeed to see Ms. Hill perform a headline show and truly something not to be missed.
