After touring in every continent but Antarctica, Lauryn Hill is making her way back to Florida. It has been two years since she’s performed here and has two concerts planned for Dec. 6 and 8 in St. Pete and Orlando, respectively. However, there’s no guarantee she will be on time. Hill has developed a reputation for lacking punctuality and apologies.
It is not unusual for Hill to arrive up to four hours late for a concert. She does not express any regret for her tardiness and begins her performance as if it isn’t 1 a.m. and you haven’t been twiddling your thumbs waiting for the concert you paid over $100 for. At one of her concerts earlier this year she arrived more than three hours late and only performed three songs before the concert was cut short due to the venue’s curfew.
However, if Hill is on time, she performs up to 26 songs. Her set list ranges from covers of Bob Marley, Nina Simone and her work with the Fugees. Most of the songs Hill performs are from her only solo studio album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” This album earned her five Grammys in one night and is her claim to fame as a solo artist.
At the concert, it’s possible for Hill to surround herself with instruments from harps to timpani drums. Her music is influenced by soul, reggae and hip hop, so she utilizes many diverse instruments to add depth to her music. Hill is known as a talented soul singer, rapper and lyricist, a versatile performer whether she is on the stage for two songs or two hours.
