Lauryn Hill announces first UK show for five years – ticket details

Singer will preview her long-awaited second album next month

Lauryn Hill has announced her first UK show for over five years.

The former Fugees singer, who is set to release her long-awaited second studio album ‘The Return’ later this year, will headline London’s IndigO2 on April 14.

The show is Hill’s first in the UK since the summer of 2007 and will see her debut new material from her second album. Her second LP will be released a full 14 years after her multi-million selling debut record ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’ came out.

The singer most recently made headlines in the summer of last year, when she was sued for harassment and unpaid wages by her former guitarist Jay Gore for over $20,000 (£12,250).

In the lawsuit, Gore accused Hill of regularly dishing out public dress down members of her band in front of groups of people and of not paying him correctly. The case has not yet been settled.

Tickets go onsale on Friday (March 23) at 9am (GMT). To check the availability of Lauryn Hill tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
