Hill and Nas will tour together throughout September and October, closing out their performances on Oct. 11 at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (June 2) through Live Nation. Special pre-sale tickets will be available for Citi cardmembers between Wednesday (May 31) at 10am local time and Thursday (June 1) 10pm local time through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete pre-sale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

Last year The Fugee’s sole female member and the 13- time Grammy nominee performed together on Hill’s “MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling!” tour. Nas helped kick off the tour last August in Philadelphia at the Mann Center with additional special guests NoName, Kehlani, and Little Simz.

Hill spent the latter part of 2016 on the tour that she said in a statement, “allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall. In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self-love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities.”
