Lauryn Hill Adds New Dates To Moving Target: Extended Intimate Playdate Series Tour

UPDATE: L-Boogie is now stopping in Houston, New Orleans, Las Vegas, San Diego, Seattle and more dates.

Although rapper/singer Lauryn Hill’s recent tour was met with much criticism the former Fugees member has just announced the Moving Target: Extended Intimate Playdate Series, a series of new tour dates. The tour is expected to make stops in 12 different cities including Atlanta, Miami, Portland, Denver, New Orleans, and more.

"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,” said Lauryn Hill in a statement. “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.”

Hill also referred to criticism of her recent shows, which she both appeared late to and performed never before heard remixes of her songs, as “amusing.”

“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,” Hill explained. “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.”

Official tour dates for Moving Target: Extended Intimate Playdate Series are as follows:

3/16                 Orlando, FL                           House of Blues

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hiya! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!
