After hitting the country earlier this year in an intimate mini-tour, Ms. Hill is back, and she wants you to come experience her live.
Last time Lauryn took to the road, many complained of long waits, spotty vocal performances, and unrecognizable remixes of her classics, but there’s still something about L-Boogie that keeps us holding onto hope.
Although I am eyeing her Los Angeles date suspiciously, unsure if I want to plunk down the cash to be let down by one of my favorites, Ms. Hill promises her “Moving Targets: Extended Playdates” tour will allow fans to reconnect with her music.
“Moving Targets” will cover 12 cities (mostly in the South and the West) and L-Boogie promises it will put an end to the hot-and-cold reviews.
“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.”
I’m not sure how many chances we will keep giving Lauryn, but it’s clear, she still has our full attention.
