The tour will feature artists from African Diaspora nations.
Hill performed at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in April. She also performed at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience in 2014, when she irked fans by starting her scheduled set late and then also arrived late to a second added set.
Hill's career is highlighted by her work with The Fugees and her 1998 landmark studio album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
. She has released new music and performed sporadically since. Hill contributed work to a Nina Revisited... A Tribute to Nina Simone
in 2015 and performed in an edition of Austin City Limits
released in early August.
Tickets to the New Orleans show go on sale at 10 a.m. Aug. 26.
