The VIPP Report: Lauryn Hill announces her Diaspora Calling! Concert Series


Lauryn Hill announces her concert series and Louisville, KY is on the schedule

The last time Lauryn Hill performed in Louisville was at the Iroquois Amphitheater in July 2014.  Now, the multi-platinum-selling artist and former member of the Fugees returns to the city.  Hill will be at the Louisville Palace on Tuesday, September 13th.

When you think of this artist you think almost immediately of her 1998 solo release The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.  That album garnered 11 Grammy Award nominations in 1999 where she won five, including Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Song, and Best R&B Album.

Hill is staying busy.  Even though she does not have newly released music for herself.  She executive produced and recorded six songs for the 2015 release Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, including interpretations of “Feeling Good” and “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair.”

If you have not heard Lauryn Hill perform a set, you get an eclectic sound where she combines rap, , soul, and reggae. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 5th! They start at $39.50.  They can be purchased at or at The Louisville Palace Box Office.  All ages are welcome to this show.

Presale Live on Thursday, August 4th 10am-10pm, code: ENCORE.
