Lauryn Hill Blames Snow for Three-Hour Show Delay
"To my fans in Pittsburgh: We apologize for the extremely late start last night, there were factors out of our control," she wrote. "Due to the snow yesterday in NYC, half of my band, and some members of my crew, were stuck at LGA airport all day. After several cancelled and delayed flights throughout the day, they arrived late last night, and went straight to the venue for the show. The promoter notified people of the new start time through social media, and as fans got to the venue."
Hill said she regretted the inconvenience caused to everyone in attendance. The "Doo Wop (That Thing)" artist told her Pittsburgh fans that she was trying to schedule another performance in their city.
"In hindsight, we should have cancelled the performance and rescheduled for a later date, but we decided to try and make it happen. We are working on scheduling another performance in Pittsburgh later this month, before the end of the tour, for the people who bought tickets to my show last night. 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."
Hill is frequently late to shows, which is a major source of frustration for her fans. It will be interesting to see if her Pittsburgh supporters are willing to give her a second chance.
