There’s ‘Snow’ Excuse: Lauryn Hill Blames Her Recent Concert Tardiness On Weather
The notoriously late Lauryn Hill ticked off a lot of people after showing up three hours late to her concert in Pittsburgh, Pa. this past Tuesday (Jan. 31). She arrived shortly before 11:30 p.m. at Heinz Hall, when the concert was set to begin at 8 p.m.
According to a Facebook post, the former Fugees front woman says she is blaming her tardiness on the snow in New York, which made it difficult for her to get to Pittsburgh on time when leaving LaGuardia Airport. Hill says a few band and crew members were with her, which is why they were also late to the performance.
“The promoter notified people of the new start time through social media, and as fans got to the venue,” she wrote. “In hindsight, we should have cancelled the performance and rescheduled for a later date, but we decided to try and make it happen.” She wrote that she is trying to make up for her lateness with another performance for her Pittsburgh fans.
“More details will be announced over the next few days. We look forward to seeing the fans in Pittsburgh again in a few weeks. Thank you for your understanding.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Hill left fans waiting to hear her lauded vocals. Fans were disappointed around this time last year, when she was slated to appear with The Weeknd at the 2016 Grammy Awards, but did not show up. She also showed up two hours late to a show in Atlanta last May.
