Were they that influential? I only remember 2 or 3 hits and they were mostly covers. Can't say I'm excited.

Look at all those gaps in dates. Presumably nervous about putting more than one date on sale at a time.

The Score is a classic album, but I'd be wary about these shows going ahead. Is Lauryn not quite erratic nowadays? :(

They absolutely were.

That said I’m not sure this reunion is a significant moment in their legacy. The opportunity to pick up any kind of momentum is long gone. Plus Lauren has a dreadful record for performing live. This is probably all about the money. But more power to them.

I have always wanted to see them but is it worth going to London for when Lauren may not turn up?

I never took a lot of notice of them but I DO know the one which sampled Enya WITHOUT HER PERMISSION which was very naughty indeed and I expect Miss Enya put a faerie queen spell on Lorraine which is why she’s always very tired :)

How the heck has Lauryn never released a follow up album? Even Enya is rolling her eyes at such productivity.

The one thing that we know for sure is that it’s not because of all the weed.

I think it could be big actually. It's 25 years since they were massive, and people forget they were just as big as the Spice Girls in '96.

Can Lauren still sing? I was elated then very disappointed in a matter of seconds to see them appearing on the Global Citizen Live concert when the performance was No Woman No Cry where vocals are all by Wyclef.

Lauryn was heavily rumoured to have had a serious crack problem for a while, which would definitely take its toll on anyone's voice. but she did tour solo a couple of years back - a bigger problem seems to be her absolute AVERSION to MELODY.
