C’mon Son: Lauryn Hill Pisses Off More Fans At Show
Lauryn Hill has upset more fans at her show. Much like the last show, she turned up 3-hours late, put an unrecognizable twist on her Grammy winning hits, the band played so loud they drowned out her sound, and she couldn’t care less about what fans felt about the show. Its the same old story told in two words: she’s underwhelming.
The good news is the lack of reporting of another back-handed sass she gave fans at her New York show last month when she pulled the same stunt the first time.
After a run of bad reviews hit media outlets during her New York shows, fans were already preparing for the worst, except this crowd didn’t feel like putting up with her for long. TheBoomBox has the full scoop. Check it out below:
Aside from showing up three hours late to the sold-out event, which was scheduled to begin at 9PM, the 35-year-old left her supporters “confused” and “underwhelmed” by declaring that she was tired of “playing the same music night after night.” The former Fugees member performed remixes of some of her classics, while urging crowd participation.
“Nobody could participate because NOBODY knew the music!” a concert-goer told Atlanta-based entertainment blog, Sandrose.com. “Everybody was looking around like ‘WHAT SONG IS THIS???[sic]‘”
Fans also complained that Hill’s band was too loud, thus drowning out her vocals. Fed-up with her antics, some audience members reportedly booed the multiple Grammy winner before leaving the venue early. “They didn’t walk out – they stomped out!” emphasized the audience member.
Hill exhibited some of the same behavior during a performance at The Pageant Concert Nightclub in St. Louis on Sunday (Jan. 16). Fans, already weary of her growing reputation for being late, waited patiently for her arrival, three hours after doors opened.
Once again announcing that she would be adding a new spin to some of her old music, Hill launched into performances of “barely recognizable” versions of songs from her critically acclaimed 1998 release, ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.’ The show reportedly went on well passed 1AM, causing some audience members to leave the concert, while others stayed until the early morning.
