* Ms. Lauryn Hill | Myer Music Bowl *
SOLD OUT | See Ms. Lauryn Hill at Festival Hall The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary Tour Sidney Myer Music Bowl Wednesday 13th February 2019 MS. LAURYN HILL is celebrating twenty years of her anthemic debut solo album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” released twenty years ago this week. Ms. Lauryn Hill established her reputation in the music world as the lone female member of the Fugees, whose record sales would make them the second biggest selling R&B act worldwide since Michael Jackson. The now multi-platinum selling artist took the world by storm two decades ago as a solo artist with “The Miseducation of Ms. Lauryn Hill”. Her singles including "Doo Wop (That Thing)" and "Everything Is Everything" catapulted her to superstardom. Her iconic solo album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” changed the face of popular music when it was released in 1998. The album’s innovative mix of traditional soul, hip-hop beats and politically charged rap was a revelation. It won 5 Grammys the year it was released and has gone on to be included in dozens of “Greatest Albums Ever” lists such as Mojo’s 100 Greatest Albums of Our Lifetime, Q’s Top 100 Albums Ever, Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and it came in at number 2 on NPR’s 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women. Iconic American rapper Nas, who currently joins Ms. Lauryn Hill on her North American tour dates will feature as a very special guest in Auckland. Nas rose to fame in 1994 with the release of his debut album “Illmatic”, arguably the most revered rap album in the genre’s history, its vivid depiction of inner-city New York, its multi-syllabic wordplay and stellar beats ensured the album didn’t flag from beginning to end. Nas and Ms. Lauryn Hill’s story begins at a similar time with their single, ‘If I Ruled The World (Imagine That)’ released in 1996, at a peak time in the Fugees career and a career kickstarter for Ms. Lauryn Hill’s solo path. Twenty years on and the cultural significance of her debut solo recording “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” remains one of the most influential pieces from the 20th century. This one-off Auckland performance will celebrate the making of an icon and a recording that changed the face of music.
