LAURYN HILL / FUGEES
Lauryn Hill and The Fugees postponed Sunday night’s show in Philly as Lauryn was told by physicians to let her voice rest to “prevent any more serious strain or damage to my vocal chords.” She adds, “The start of this tour has been incredible. What an amazing experience to celebrate this anniversary whith all of my family, my friends and all of you. I look forward to giving you the show you deserve with a fully recovered and healthy voice.” The new date for the Philly show is November 25. “It will be a special one,” Lauryn says. The tour is scheduled to pick up in Toronto on Thursday.
blink-182 will be hitting iconic US stadiums for the first time ever this summer with Pierce the Veil in tow.
“Let’s try this again, shall we?” Mclusky had to cancel the remainder of their 2022 reunion tour as frontman Andy Falkous dealt with a variety of chronic ear issues. He’s sorted those out, apparently, as they’ve just announced new North American dates for 2024. “If something goes wrong this time we’re just going to Weekend at Bernie’s it,” Falkous wrote, announcing new 2024 dates.
STOVE GOD COOK$
One of our favorite Griselda-affiliated rappers — who’s got some great new verses on the Westside Gunn album that just came out (as usual) — has his own headlining show happening at Brooklyn’s The Meadows on November 9th “with very special guests.” No other dates at the moment that we can easily find.
BENNY THE BUTCHER
Speaking of Griselda shows on November 9th, Benny the Butcher will play his first ever show with a live band on that same evening at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. No other dates to report for the Butcher either at the moment.
