Just when music artists got excited that they’ll be able to tour again, Omicron hit the world.
The latest band to cancel their upcoming tour is the Fugees. The reason for the reunion tour was to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their Grammy-award winning album, The Score.
In a post on Instagram, the trip announced that they cancelled the tour because of safety.
“We want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe.”
While Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel said it might not be the right time to tour now, they hinted at a possible tour happening at a later stage, saying in the post “if opportunity, public safety and scheduling allow”.
The New York Times reports that when it was released in 1996, The Score, the group’s second and final album, debuted at No.12 on the Billboard album chart.
Within a week of its release, the album broke into the top five and within a few months, it became the No. 1 album. That same year, the band won two Grammy Awards for The Score but lost out on the album of the year award.
No new dates have been announced.
