Fugees cancel reunion tour

By | Published on Monday 24 January 2022


Fugees have announced that they are completely cancelling the reunion tour they announced last year, citing ongoing issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group announced that they would reunite to mark the 25th anniversary of their 1996 album ‘The Score’ in September – with a secret show taking place in New York that month. The tour was then scheduled to begin in November, reaching the UK in December.

However, in October is was announced that the dates were being postponed, with confirmation of new dates due “soon”. But no updates were forthcoming and on Friday it was announced that the shows will now not go ahead at all.

“We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen”, Fugees said in a statement. “The continued COVID pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe”.

Saying that the tour had aimed to “honour and celebrate this 25th anniversary of ‘The Score’”, they continued: “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”, they went on. “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”.
