Capitalizing on her momentum from previous festival gigs and a successful run of her Moving Target: Extended Intimate Playdate Series, Lauryn Hill has added a second leg to the tour. This leg includes Hill's scheduled performance April 15th at The Coachella Music Festival.
March 10th, Lauryn Hill revealed the dates for the second part of the tour along with a statement, "One of the benefits of playing venues smaller than the ones I'm used to allows me the opportunity to not only reconnect with my supporters but to expose them to a portion of the musical journey I've been on which the world for the most part has not had access to," Hill said. "I've never shied away from being musically adventurous, nor am I known for being a lightweight when it comes to lyrical content or musical exploration."
“These more intimate playdates afford me the time to perform for listeners who haven't heard from me over the past several years or have been misinformed by the inaccuracies in some media coverage, many of which I might add, I find very amusing. Getting back out there to perform is a lot like resuming a strenuous sport after having been away from it for a while, but eventually the muscle memory kicks in, and each day brings progressive strength. It's an exciting and REAL process which these audiences will get to witness."
