Due to overwhelming demand, Ms. Lauryn Hill has added an additional Atlanta show at Center Stage which will be open for sale to the public. The newly added show will take place on March 31st, one day after the March 30th show she is giving to fans who attended her concert on January 14th. Due to a late start, Ms. Hill felt the fans didn't receive a proper representation of the true musical experience she intended them to have. Tickets for the March 31st show will go on sale this Saturday, March 19th.
Of these playdates Ms. Hill says, "One of the benefits of playing venues smaller than the ones I'm used to allows me the opportunity to not only reconnect with my supporters but to expose them to a portion of the musical journey I've been on which the world for the most part has not had access to. I've never shied away from being musically adventurous, nor am I known for being a lightweight when it comes to lyrical content or musical exploration. These more intimate playdates afford me the time to perform for listeners who haven't heard from me over the past several years or have been misinformed by the inaccuracies in some media coverage, many of which I might add, I find very amusing. Getting back out there to perform is a lot like resuming a strenuous sport after having been away from it for a while, but eventually the muscle-memory kicks in and each day brings progressive strength. It's an exciting and REAL process which these audiences will get to witness."
