Show Announcements: Lauryn Hill, Concerts In The Garden & More!

Ever since Lauryn Hill made a brief disappearance from the public eye in 2000, her career has been patchy at best.

Her acoustic record in 2002, MTV Unplugged No. 2.0, was met with mediocre reviews, and the Fugees reunion fared even worse. But, aside from her brilliant output in the Fugees' first go-around, Hill's best work was showcased on her classic album, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill.

And, these days, it seems that Hill has finally come to her senses. Word has it that, for her new tour, she plans to use Miseducation for the bulk of her material.

Luckily for her Dallas-based fans, she plans to make a stop at House Of Blues next Wednesday, April 27. Unluckily for her Dallas-based fans, tickets are going for a staggering $65.07 to $90.28 over at Live Nation. Worth it? For some, it's a no-brainer.

In other show announcements news, The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has announced their Concerts In The Garden summer music series dates, which will include performances from Old '97s and Telegraph Canyon. Hit the jump for those dates and about 70 other show announcements.
