GRAMMY® Award-winning powerhouse Ms. Lauryn Hill and anthemic rap superstar Nas are ready to rule the world on their co-headlining tour. Produced by Live Nation, the incomparable music experience will lift off September 27 at Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land and feature special guests, comedian Hannibal Buress and reggae artist Chronixx, on various tour stops.

Multi-platinum artist Ms. Lauryn Hill rose to prominence as the lone female member of The Fugees, one of the biggest selling R&B acts around the world. Her solo career soared when The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released nearly twenty years ago, earning her five GRAMMY® Awards and leaving a beautifully indelible mark in music history. Nas has become a global phenomenon in his own right with eight platinum and multi-platinum albums under his belt, along with a staggering 13 GRAMMY® nominations. Together on their newly announced tour, they will visit 17 cites across the United States and Canada.
