The Fugees will kick off the tour Wednesday at an undisclosed location in New York. The show will be filmed for Global Citizen Live, a virtual 24-hour event airing Saturday on ABC, BBC, FX, YouTube and other networks and steaming services.

In addition, The Fugees' charitable fund will partner with Global Citizen on philanthropic initiatives around the tour.

Following Global Citizen Live, the tour will resume Nov. 2 in Chicago and end Dec. 18 in Ghana. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

"The Fugees hae a complex but impactful history. I wasn't even aware the 25th anniversary had arrived until someone brought it to my attention," Hill said in a statement. "I decided to honor this significant project, its anniversary, and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where we could unite, perform the music we loved, and set an example of reconciliation for the world."
