Lauryn Hill’s focus on quality live shows prompted her to postpone the Philadelphia stop on her anniversary tour in order to “rest” her voice.
The Grammy award-winning singer has been on the road as part of the 25th anniversary of “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” album. But on Sunday, October 22, Hill announced the Philadelphia show would be postponed to November 25, so she could rest her vocal cords.
“It is with disappointment that I am writing this note to you. On the advice of my physicians, I have no choice but to postpone the show tomorrow,” Hill wrote in a statement shared on X/Twitter.
“I need to rest my voice to prevent any more serious strain or damage to my vocal cords.”
Hill also promised the new show date would “a special one.”
Fans supported her announcement, telling the Fugees singer to get the rest she needs ahead of continuing the tour. There were some fans who expressed their disappointment in the postponed show since they already made their travel arrangements.
“I came from Spain only for the concert. Four days in the States and back home,” one user wrote.
The announcement comes amid mixed reviews of her recent shows where attendees reportedly complained about her coming out late to perform.
“Saw some misleading tweets, the Lauryn Hill & The Fugees show was actually fire!” one attendee tweeted.
Another user shared a funny video clip likening it to “Lauryn Hill after making her fans wait 2 hours to perform.”
