Lauryn Hill Tickets
The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
One of the most prominent female rappers of all time, Lauryn Hill, celebrates the 20th anniversary of her classic album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill this year, bringing her anniversary tour to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel on Friday 7th September 2018! The soul singer hopes the message of her iconic album still rings true today:
"This album chronicled an intimate piece of my young existence," Hill says. "It was the summation of most, if not all, of my most hopeful and positive emotions experienced to that date. I loved and believed deeply in my community's ability to both love and heal itself provided it received the right amount of support and encouragement."
"Our world today, both complex and changing, is in need of the balance between moral fortitude and cathartic expression. I hope the love and energy that permeated this work can continue to inspire change with love and optimism at the helm."
