Ms. Lauryn Hill is currently on her massive Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th anniversary tour, but two of her top supporting acts have been cut from the bill.
The two acts, Santigold and Nas, are no longer on the tour due to “production issues.” While Hill and her team did not provide certain clarification, Santigold tweeted that a note from Hill’s management team said “due to production issues, The Miseducation 20th Anniversary Tour is unable to accommodate Santigold’s performance this evening.”
I will no longer be performing on The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill Tour at the following dates due to the tour organizers’ decision to reduce the support. So sorry to disappoint my fans.
9/14: Vancouver, BC
9/15: Seattle, WA
9/22: Phoenix, AZ
9/26: Denver, CO

Nope not sick. So sorry I wasn’t able to perform for you all. Note I saw from @MsLaurynHill Mgmt team read… “Due to production issues, The Miseducation 20th Anniversary Tour is unable to accommodate Santigold’s performance this evening”

Many fans on Twitter were upset to see Santigold was cut from the show, noting that they had only bought tickets to see her.
Additionally, Nas will not play at the St. Louis show on October 5 at Chaifetz Arena, but no reason has been given for why he will not perform. Nas was originally added to the date after the tour was announced.
Other supporting acts on Hill’s tour include Dave Chappelle, De La Soul, SZA, and Shabazz Palaces. It is unclear at this time whether these acts have been dropped from the tour or not; the U.S. trek is due to run through October 22 before headed overseas.
Earlier this year, Hill cancelled multiple dates on tour due to “unforeseen production issues.” Fans were very upset about the last-minute cancellations, Hill’s tardiness to the stage, and the length of her set.
