In a new Facebook post, Lauryn Hill explained why she showed up two hours late to a show at Atlanta’s Chastain Park Amphitheater on Friday, where she performed for only 40 minutes. “I don’t show up late to shows because I don’t care,” she writes.
Hill continued: “And I have nothing but Love and respect for my fans. The challenge is aligning my energy with the time, taking something that isn’t easily classified or contained, and trying to make it available for others. I don’t have an on/off switch.”
Hill has arrived late for shows before and addressed that in her note, writing, “For every performance that I’ve arrived to late, there have been countless others where I’ve performed in excess of two hours, beyond what I am contracted to do, pouring everything out on the stage.”
She finished by saying, “I have nothing but Love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show. We are figuring out a plan to make it up to you, and will announce details as soon as we have them.”
