The Fugees Tickets for Sale

The Fugees gained attention for their cover versions of old favorites, with the group's reinterpretations of "No Woman No Cry" by Bob Marley & the Wailers and "Killing Me Softly (With His Song)" by Roberta Flack, the latter being their biggest pop hit. The Score also included a re-interpretation of The Delfonics' "Ready or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)" in their hit single, "Ready or Not", which featured a prominent sample of Enya's Boadicea without the singer's permission. This prompted a lawsuit resulting in a settlement where Enya was given credit and royalties for her sample. The Fugees have continuously thanked and praised Enya for her deep understanding of the situation, for example in the liner notes for The Score. The Fugees won two 1997 Grammy Awards with The Score (Best Rap Album) and "Killing Me Softly" (Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group).

However by 1997, all Fugees began solo projects: Hill started work on her critically acclaimed The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill; Jean began producing for a number of artists (including Canibus, Destiny's Child and Carlos Santana) and recorded his debut album The Carnival; Michel, with Mya and Ol' Dirty Bastard, recorded the single "Ghetto Supastar" for the soundtrack to the Warren Beatty/Halle Berry film Bulworth. After each member found success in other ventures, the group failed to reform. Though the Fugees remained tight-lipped about the exact reasons, most fans believed that a serious personality conflict between Hill and Jean contributed to the groups breakup following Wyclef's The Carnival. Thus Hill and Jean each went on to have a successful solo recording careers, Michel has focused mainly on soundtrack recordings and acting.

However, on 18 September, 2004 the three Fugees reunited and performed at the concert in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The concert was featured in the film Dave Chappelle's Block Party, headlining a star-studded bill that included Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Common, Big Daddy Kane, dead prez, Cody ChestnuTT and John Legend. Moreover, their performance received a very positive review, many of which praised Hill's near a cappella rendition of "Killing Me Softly".

In 2005, The Fugees embarked on a European tour - their first together since 1997 - from 30 November to 20 December, playing in Finland, Austria, Norway, Germany, Italy, France, England, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland and Slovakia. t reported the concerts to be underpromoted and disorganized, and to have poor sound.
