Lauryn Hill has added a third London date to her forthcoming UK tour.
The singer has scheduled a date at the Brooklyn Bowl venue, located inside the O2 in Greenwich, on September 28. The gig will take place after previously announced live dates in London, Manchester and Birmingham. 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 at the Indigo2 venue 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.
