A tour was booked for November and then postponed, with the Prudential Center concert moving from September 23 to March 12. “We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen,” the Fugees announced on social media. “The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe. An idea sparked to honor and celebrate this 25th anniversary of The Score but we see now it may not currently be our time for revisiting this past work. We’re grateful for the special night we did get to share with some of you in New York, with that rare live moment. If opportunity, public safety, and scheduling allow, we hope to be able to revisit this again sometime soon. THANK YOU For all your love and support throughout the years.”

Reigning Sound and our touring partners, the Country Westerns and the Okmoniks, have been looking forward to these shows for nearly a year.
