After wrapping up her first big tour in years, former Fugee’s member Lauryn Hill will soon be kicking off the second leg of her “Moving Targets: Extended Intimate Playdate Series” Tour!
The “Doo Wop (That Thing)” singer will open round two of her tour on March 16th in Florida and will wrap up in May at the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
Much like the first leg of her tour, Lauryn will be playing at intimate venues.
Hill said of her decision to perform on small stages:
“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. I’ve never shied away from being musically adventurous, nor am I known for being a lightweight when it comes to lyrical content or musical exploration.”
After being away from the stage for so long, is Lauryn polished in her performance skills? Almost … but not just yet, she says.
“Getting back out there to perform is a lot like resuming a strenuous sport after having been away from it for a while, but eventually the muscle memory kicks in, and each day brings progressive strength. It’s an exciting and real process which these audiences will get to witness.” (Source)
