UPDATE: She's playing Highline Ballroom & other dates too

Lauryn Hill at Rock The Bells (more by Brook Bobbins)
Lauryn Hill

Despite Hill's inactivity, she was recently scheduled to make an appearance in Burlington, Vermont, at the Higher Ground venue. But those plans have already changed twice. The concert was originally set for Dec. 15 but was then rescheduled to Dec. 17. Now it's indefinitely postponed. Higher Ground posted a notice on their website indicating to visitors that an exact date is still being worked out.

Hill has, however, been back on stage this year performing in a few concerts but most recently at a charity event for Parkinson's in New York City, which was hosted by actor Michael J. Fox.

The singer gave an interview with National Public Radio earlier this year sounding motivated and on the verge of making a comeback.

"I'm starting to get excited again," Hill told NPR. "Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first." -[Yahoo]

The reclusive Lauryn Hill last logged dates as part of Rock The Bells (pics here, here, and here), and now the former Fugee will again come out of hiding to (hopefully) play a few shows including Music Hall of Williamsburg on Dec 28th and Bowery Ballroom on January 1st. Tickets for both shows (MHOW, Bowery) go on sale at noon on Friday (12/10).

Let's hope Lauryn doesn't decide to get her nails done on either of those days. (side note: we have no idea why Roots shows, including the 12/29 one at Starland Ballroom, show up on Ticketmaster when you search for Lauryn). Full tour dates, which do not include a new Vermont date yet, and some videos below...

Is this even worth it? It would be cool to her in a small place like Bowery but I don't want to pay to see a half-assed bad performance.

0% chance of these shows happening.

US $80.45 (US $75.00 Ticket + US $5.45 Fees)

Actually, 80 bucks? Yeah, forget that.

$80!!!! go back in hiding please

Wow, that Peter Hook crapshow actually seems appealing now

Bowery staff sucks. Expect for the people who paid $80 to be outside for 3 hours as the bouncers let in celebrities, hot sluts, and their friends.

^She grew up in East Orange I believe

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 1:38 PM

The most despicable cunt I've ever had the misfortune to encounter. Unlike some other beloved recluses that have recently returned to the stage, no one wants to hear this piece of garbage open her mouth again.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 1:47 PM

any chance that she will show up on time?

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 1:47 PM

would it be worth it to buy 2 tickets - scalp 1 to help pay for my own

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 1:53 PM

No fucking chance, and once her set begins you'll have to stand there for at least 45 minutes while she does some sort of reggae jam for no good reason. Enjoy!

I wouldn't pay $75 for a Fugees reunion...Hell, I would NEVER pay $75 for ANY hip-hop show. Now R&B on the other hand.....

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 2:10 PM

I was at the Michael J Fox event and I have to say she rocked it. I'm not a particularly big fan but she was legit great.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 2:13 PM

I'd pay 75 dollars to have Lauren hill come over to my east village apartment and help me prepare this hummus platter I'm doing up. I got a huge party tonight and really don't have the time to do all the prep work.

1:38, "has any artist . . "

See: Arcade Fire (all of their albums stink), Interpol, and TV on the Radio.

she's from south orange, and still lives there.

with her 20 kids.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 8:39 PM

axl rose is more deserving of your $80

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2010 9:18 PM

lol. she could spit when she was with the fugees, but i'm not a big r&b person, so i never got into her solo stuff except Lost Ones.

also, obviously the clientele here are not the target audience for a Lauryn Hill show. I don't think you understand how beloved she still is in the black community, and they consistently overspend on concerts, so this should sell out with little problem.

Posted by Anonymous | December 10, 2010 12:04 AM

Yeah that rumor has never had any real backing and the video of her supposedly saying that has yet to surface. Thats a twisted rumor.

Not even a Lauryn Hill fan too much but this has happened to other women in hip hop etc. in the last 10 plus years.


http://www.snopes.com/quotes/lauryn.asp

During the summer of 1996, a caller to shock jock Howard Stern's
radio show said on the air that he'd heard Lauryn tell MTV that she'd
rather see her child starve than have a white kid buy her album. MTV
would announce later that the allegation wasn't true, but by that time
it was too late. The ugly, false rumor had already been set in motion.


"From this one broadcast, all of a sudden people who appreciated my
music thought that there was something wrong with who I was and what I
represented," says Lauryn. Instead of letting a publicist act on her
behalf, Lauryn, furious and very hurt, called a radio station herself to
deny the charge. "I said, 'How can I possibly be a racist? My music is
universal music. And I believe in God. If I believe in God, then I have
to love all of God's creations. There can be no segregation.'"
