The Fugees are reuniting for their first tour together in 25 years. According to a press statement, the famed trio – comprised of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel – will hit the road this fall in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their classic 1996 album, The Score.

“The Fugees have a complex but impactful history,” Hill said in the statement. “I wasn’t even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention. I decided to honor this significant project, its anniversary and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where we could unite, perform the music we loved and set an example of reconciliation for the world.”

Jean added, “As I celebrate 25 years with the Fugees, my first memory was that we vowed from the gate we would not just do music — we would be a movement. We would be a voice for the unheard and in these challenging times, I am grateful once again that God has brought us together.”

The Fugees’ 12-city tour kicks off in New York City on Wednesday (Sept. 22) at a currently undisclosed venue. The trek will then continue on Nov. 2 in Chicago, followed by U.S. stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Washington, D.C. and more. On Dec. 4, Fugees will make their way to Paris before wrapping up with shows in London, Nigeria and Ghana.

According to a tweet by D.C.’s Capital One Arena, tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday (Sept. 24) at 10 a.m. local time. 

Last month, a rumor about a potential Verzuz battle between Fugees and The Roots went viral. However, as reported by REVOLT, Black Thought denied that any such showdown was in the works. 

The Score, Fugees’ second album, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and boasted hits like “Ready or Not” and “Killing Me Softly.” The record was also the second rap album in Grammys history to be nominated for Album of the Year.
