PITTSBURGH (AP) — Singer-rapper Lauryn Hill has apologized for making fans wait more than three hours for her show to start in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Hill says 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 says snow in New York caused some band and crew members to be stuck at LaGuardia Airport and arrive late in Pittsburgh. In hindsight, she says, the performance should have been canceled and rescheduled.

Hill says 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 says she hopes to schedule another Pittsburgh performance for those fans later this month.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Only a fraction of the audience had stuck around when singer-rapper Lauryn Hill took the stage in Pittsburgh more than three hours late.

A disc jockey on the bill, DJ Motormane, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Hill was at Heinz Hall by 5:30 p.m. to rehearse for Tuesday night’s 8 p.m. show, but that her band apparently was delayed by weather.

Motormane played until about 9:30 p.m. followed by musician Paul Beaubrun, before Hill’s DJ took the stage at 10:30 p.m.

The newspaper says Hill didn’t take the stage until 11:20 p.m., playing until about 1 a.m. for those who stayed instead of requesting refunds.

Hill’s spokeswoman didn’t immediately comment Wednesday.

But fans lit up Twitter with comments including, “I will never pay to see her again. Ever.”

  1. Everyone needs to stop going to her show. I love Lauren but she needs to realize her fans do not need her and she is not the “hottest” artist today. Show respect for the people who help take you to the top.

    How disrespectful! This woman hasn’t had a hit or album since The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1998, how dare she be so unapologetic in her complete lack of respect of others time and money. I don’t see how she has fans left.

  3. Ms. Hill should consider giving up doing concerts since she is always LATE!!!!!
    Folks who have paid good $$$ to see her are getting tired of her dumb ass!!!!
    She obviously does not care about her audience, otherwise she would try to be ON TIME!!!!!!!
