Supporting acts Nas and Santigold were mysteriously absent from the Portland stop on Ms. Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation anniversary tour Wednesday (Sept. 12), and Friday night (Sept. 14), Santigold confirmed on Twitter that she has been dropped from the remaining dates of the tour run.
Portland fans were reportedly given no warning that the two openers would not be appearing, and instead a DJ opened for Lauryn. After a fan tweeted at her asking what happened, Santigold replied and apologized, saying the note she received from Hill’s management cited “production issues” as the reason for her and Nas’s dismissal.
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"
