Fugees Reunion Tour Canceled Over COVID-19 Concerns

“We want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe,” the trio wrote in a statement.

The Fugees is canceling its much-anticipated reunion tour due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe,” the trio explained in a statement, according to Pitchfork. “An idea sparked to honor and celebrate this 25th anniversary of The Score but we see now it may not currently be our time for revisiting this past work.”

The reunion tour was announced in September with Ms. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel planning to do shows for it in November and December. Subsequently, the tour was pushed back to 2022 in hopes that more cities would be open and that they could perform for as many fans as possible.

In the United States, the trio had planned to perform in NYC, Chicago, Oakland, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Newark and Washington D.C.

Unfortunately, the group ended up playing just one reunion show in New York. Read the group’s full statement below:

​​We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen. The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe. An idea sparked to honor and celebrate this 25th anniversary of The Score but we see now it may not currently be our time for revisiting this past work. We’re grateful for the special night we did get to share with some of you in New York, with that rare live moment. If opportunity, public safety, and scheduling allow, we hope to be able to revisit this again sometime soon. THANK YOU for all your love and support throughout the years.
