Sorry Fugees fans, the group has officially scrapped their reunion tour.
Fans of the famous trio were excited when they announced in 2021 that they would be reuniting for a world tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their Grammy-winning album, The Score.
The tour would have seen them visit 12 cities across the globe, including cities in Nigeria and Ghana.
In a statement shared on social media, the group announced the cancellation of their tour, apologising to disappointed fans.
“We anticipate and understand disappointment but our anniversary tour will not be able to happen. The continued Covid pandemic has made touring conditions difficult, and we want to make sure we keep our fans and ourselves healthy and safe,” the statement reads.
Further on in the message, the group noted that they were “grateful for the special night we did get to share with some of you in New York, with that rare live moment,” referring to their reunion at last years Global Citizen event.
“If opportunity, public safety, and scheduling allow, we hope to be able to revisit this again sometime soon. Thank you for all your love and support throughout the years,” the statement concludes.
While fans were saddened by the news, many were not surprised by the Fugees decision, with some in the comment section of the post stating that they “saw it coming”.
