Lauryn Hill returning to D.C. for a second date; tickets on sale Friday

Well, it seems that Lauryn Hill's triumphant, post-prison comeback shows this winter (including one at the 9:30 Club) were just the beginning for the mercurial rapper-singer.

For those who missed the intimate, sold-out 9:30 Club show in December, a second D.C. date has been added Feb. 9 at the Lincoln Theatre. Tickets, which will run $75 to $125, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketfly. (You can also catch Ms. Hill with Ray LaMontagne and Thievery Corporation jamming away in the Blue Ridge Mountains at this summer's Floyd Fest.)

 The second D.C. show is part of the growing club and theater "Homecoming" tour the singer has undertaken since her release late last year from a prison stint for failing to pay income taxes. At the 9:30 Club, Post reviewer Sarah Godfrey found L Boogie back in her element for perhaps the first time in a decade as she performed tracks from her lone solo album, the Grammy-winning "Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," and returned to her rap roots for a few Fugees numbers.

Check out video from the first night of the tour, in New York. Hill performs a reggae-tinged "Ex-Factor," one of the many now-classics she's  performing with fresh arrangements.
