US superstar Lauryn Hill has announced two huge UK concerts in 2019, headlining the Nocturne Live concert series at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire in June and the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in East Sussex in July.
Having toured the world in 2018 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of seminal album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, the rapper and singer will return to the UK to perform a career-spanning greatest hits set featuring tracks from her multi Grammy award-winning solo album alongside classic Fugees songs and new material.
One of the biggest artists of the 90s, Hill rose to prominence as lead singer of The Fugees before going on to become a multi-Grammy-winning solo artist with the release of her 20 million-selling album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Tracks such as Doo Wop (That Thing), Ex-Factor and Everything Is Everything helped catapult Hill to global superstardom and cemented her position as one of the most pioneering acts of her generation.
Lauryn Hill performs at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Friday June 21st as part of the Nocturne Live concert series. Support will come from UK soul songstress Laura Mvula and BBC Sound of 2019 and Brits critics’ choice nominee Mahalia. Other acts performing across the weekend include Kylie Minogue, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Tears For Fears, White Lies and Scritti Politti.
She will headline the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in Glynde, East Sussex on Sunday July 7th alongside the likes of Gladys Knight, Jamie Cullum, Madeleine Peyroux and Snarky Puppy.
