Lauryn Hill sorry for late show


February 03, 2017


Singer-rapper Lauryn Hill has apologised for making fans wait more than three hours for her show to start in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Hill said on Facebook that "factors out of our control" caused her to take the stage at 11:20 p.m. for a Heinz Hall show advertised as starting at 8 p.m.

She said snow in New York caused some band and crew members to be stuck at LaGuardia Airport and arrive late in Pittsburgh.

In hindsight, she said, the performance should have been cancelled and rescheduled.

Hill said the promoter used social media to notify fans that the show would start late. But the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that many fans left and demanded refunds.

Hill said she hoped to schedule another Pittsburgh performance for those fans later this month.
