Lauryn Hill to play second date in London this September

Singer will perform two nights at 02 Brixton Academy after first night sells out

Lauryn Hill has announced a second show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.

The singer has scheduled a second date at the London venue after a previously announced live date at the same venue sold out immediately. The second date will take place the night after that gig, on September 21. See below for ticket details.

The performance is a rare one from the singer-songwriter and former Fugees member. Her only UK show in the past five years was an appearance at London’s Indigo2 in April 2012. On that occasion, she performed much of her revered solo album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’, a handful of Fugees songs and covers of tracks by artists including Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder.


The performance follows some difficult times for Hill, who was last month forced to deny reports that she is being reinvestigated for tax evasion. She was released from a three-month sentence for tax evasion in October last year.

In February, Hill covered The Beatles’ ‘Something’ on the Late Show With David Letterman. Click here to watch that performance and read NME.COM’s Lucy Jones on how it could mark the start of a proper comeback.
