Written by Ken Simmons on July 1, 2022
Wyclef Jean is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his 1997 debut solo album, The Carnival, by performing a concert over the holiday weekend that will be livestreamed.
The three-time Grammy winner’s show on Sunday, July 3, will be streamed live on the Amazon Music channel, on Twitch and on the Amazon Music app at 9 pm ET from the Toulouse Theatre in New Orleans.
“When I created The Carnival album my idea was to show, through my music, a world without borders,” The Fugees member said in a statement. “25 years later, please join me and let’s celebrate the culture!”
The Carnival included the Platinum single “Gone till November” and featured Fugees members Lauryn Hill and Pras, as well as The Neville Brothers and Celia Cruz. Jean promises that there will be surprise performances from “some amazing guests.”
