Lauryn Hill Leaves Fans Fuming With Poor Performance
Former Fugees star Lauryn Hill left fans outraged by a poor four-song set at her recent California gig, prompting disgruntled concert-goers to demand refunds for their $90 (GBP45) tickets.
The reclusive singer played a rare gig last Thursday (27Jun07) at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, but fans were shocked to learn Hill's performance was over almost as soon as it had started and left the venue complaining about the poor showing.
Local newspaper San Jose Mercury, reports, "It wasn't just her voice that was shaky. Hill stumbled about the stage and, at one point, actually fell flat on her back - which brought into question exactly what the singer had been doing backstage during the long delay..."
The article also claims up to 100 fans exited the auditorium "grumbling loudly and demanding refunds".
Hill released her debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1998, but has yet to produce a follow-up to the highly acclaimed LP.
