After a long, long absence (her last Pittsburgh show was in 1999, at what was then the Star Lake Amphitheater), Lauryn Hill
makes a stop at the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall
on May 11. Yes, that's May 11, 2016, just a few days from now.
Since releasing her damn-near perfect record, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
in 1998, for which she won five Grammy awards and countless accolades, Hill has generally kept a low profile, touring sporadically and occasionally releasing tracks here and there. Most recently, she appeared on the 2015 compilation Nina Revisited ... a Tribute to Nina Simone, which writer Salamishah Tillet
praised for showcasing Hill's "breadth and dexterity."
Tickets for next week's show are on sale now, and run $55-100. Grab em as soon as you can because, despite the short notice, this will probably sell out.
Tickets and show information available at the Drusky
