If I paid to see a two hour set and the act decided to make me wait an hour and twenty minutes to then only play a forty minute set I would be pretty livid.. I don't understand how Lauryn Hill fans do it and just accept that it is what it is for every show she does.

The latest news follows the last time Lauryn Hill hit the stage. For those who missed all that drama, fans were left waiting hours for Lauryn to arrive at the venue. Then to make matters worse, being excessively late has become a norm for the singer. There have been times where its taken Lauryn until nearly 10:00 pm to arrive for a 7:00 pm or 8:00 pm show. It should be interesting to see how this tour turns out.
