Lauryn Hill gives disastrous performance in London


If Lauryn Hill set the goal of agitating and alienating her fans across the world, then her plan is working beautifully.

The embattled singer has earned quite the reputation for giving odd and perturbing concert performances lately.

Hill recently took the stage at London’s Brixton Academy and increased her count of confused concertgoers as she kept the crowd waiting for an extended amount of time and upon finally taking the stage, charged into unfamiliar and disturbing renditions of her hits.

According to The Guardian the evening culminated in disgruntled fans booing Hill and walking out on her performance:

The trouble began before Hill had even taken to the stage, with complaints about the warm-up DJ. That Hill kept the crowd waiting, arriving on stage 90 minutes after the advertised starting time, hardly helped matters. Then, when she did begin, many in the crowd were horrified by massively rearranged versions of songs from her only solo album to date, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

Not only were there complaints about the manner in which the songs were performed, but also about the sound at the Academy, which was reportedly very loud and lacking clarity. Some fans booed Hill, and others left early. Suggestions that she was booed offstage appear to be incorrect: though booed, she was leaving the stage temporarily.

Soon after fans posted about their displeasure on Twitter. Check out their tweets below.

    All those people that are tweeting about Lauryn Hill’s disaster concert I’m sure you heard about her past concerts that she held a few times this year that should have told you right there that everything wasn’t okay with Lauryn Hill I am a fan of Lauryn Hill but oops your tweeting from London so you probably never heard about this issue with Lauryn Hill but now you know she is having issues right now in life and maybe in the back of her head she thinks everything is OK and it’s really not so sometimes I think people just go to concerts so they can see people mess up or do bad just so they can tweet something stupid like I said oops you tweeting from London and you all are late on news or just illiterate about her in her concert so I guess before you go and see somebody in concert go and look them up on the internet because that is what the internet is for and you get your answers right there whether you should go see them in concert or not real talk because I’m just keeping it real

    She cannot play the original version of the songs due to record label complaints.

      thank you Heem I knew it was something wrong with the picture even if is due to record recording complaints or even with her mental state or other obvious reasons I’m still a fan of Lauryn Hill I love her music and she’s one of those artist that will never be forgotten no matter what they try to do to her reputation because I know that will motivate her to do what she love and that’s music no matter what

      This is not true. But its good propaganda.
