Tampa Bay’s been waiting for the return of Lauryn Hill, and they’ll be ready to wait for her to come onstage when she brings The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 25th anniversary tour to Tampa this winter.

Tickets to see Lauryn Hill and The Fugees play Tampa’s Amalie Arena on Friday, Dec. 8 go on sale Friday, Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. EDT and start at $55.75.

The 48-year-old songwriter and rapper with eight Grammy awards was supposed to play St. Petersburg’s Al Lang Field in 2018, but canceled the show. Before that, Hill visited the Bay area in 2016 and 2011.

Hill’s landmark album was added to the Library of Congress in 2015, and after its release, Hill became the first woman to be nominated for 10 Grammy awards in one year and the first woman to win five Grammys in one night.

The Fugees—with whom Hill became one of hip-hop’s most iconic figures—will join in at the Amalie Arena show. The band reunited recently at the Global Citizen Festival, and in a press release, fellow Fugee Wyclef Jean said the shows will be "lightning in a bottle."

Pras added that Miseducation "shaped the soundtrack of a generation."

Pras recently been convicted on what NPR described as "10 counts related to charges that include conspiracy, witness tampering and failing to register as an agent of China," but a rep for Amalie Arena told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that all three Fugees will be part of the show.
