Either people are gluttons for punishment, or they have money and time to burn when it comes to attending a Lauryn Hill concert. We all know Hill is infamous for her lateness, and last night in Pittsburgh proved no different.
Hill is currently on tour with her The MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling! Concert Series and during her Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, show she was 3 hours late.
Hill’s show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET at Heinz Hall, but the show didn’t start until around a quarter to 12, and fans were furious:
I've been waiting for Lauryn hill to come on stage for almost 3 hours. She has yet to come out. I'm beyond angry.

Lauryn Hill is 3+ hours late to this show & everyone is visibly (& understandably) mad but I don't get why anyone is surprised. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

But all was not lost, apparently once the show did start, it wasn’t half bad:
Three hours fifteen minutes later, there is a great band playing but it’s not Lauryn Hill. pic.twitter.com/pfT6qy7oYd

But that didn’t stop her name from being a trending topic all Tuesday night and Wednesday morning:

Personally I’ve been to 3 Hill concerts, and she was only late to one of them. So I guess I’ve been lucky?
