Lauryn Hill is taking The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill on the road for its 20th anniversary. The North American trek, celebrating her classic 1998 debut album which turns 20 this August, kicks off in Virginia Beach on July 5 and wraps up in St. Louis on Oct 5. Ms. Hill’s victory lap will make stops in cities including Boston, Philly, Toronto, Miami, Atlanta and New Orleans along the way. Presale tickets become available at 2pm EST today via Ticketmaster.

Though Lauryn Hill’s output has been scarce since, well, The Miseducation… dropped two decades ago, she toured North America with Nas last year while avoiding the usual setbacks we’ve come to expect from Lauryn Hill shows, so hopefully this 20th anniversary tour goes off without a hitch.
