Review of Ms. Lauryn Hill

Overall rating: 3.5

I felt if the sound quality was bad for some people then that would be down to the venue itself.
Not the performers fault?
I personally didn't notice.
It didn't effect the sound Lauren hill made herself, still with her awesome voice, it was amazing!

The majority that enjoyed the concert and everyone who stayed till the end would have heard the heart warming speech that Lauren Hill had relayed, which was beautifully said and powerful ...
about how grateful she was for all her supporters and fans accepting her music then and how grateful she was that everyone could accept how in 20 years in her life has developed a different sound. Which has grown over the years. She belted out an amazing performance, the last few songs were the favourites!
Zion was very emotional for her when she sang it.
What a lovely surprise to sing Killing me softly at the end!
She also spoke about how she felt it's really important to do things in your own way through creativity, and to make sure we don't lose it. She was connecting with the crowd. Very special.
The venue Abruptly ended the concert with turning on the main lights, as it ran over time a little but she didn't leave immediately she carried on wishing everyone the best as they got up to go. Sooo sweet.
She waved everyone off as they got up to leave. She was doing things in a different way... And why not!?
Was lovely! Well done Ms Hill xx

Review of Ms. Lauryn Hill

Overall rating: 1

The sound quality was horrendous!!
We couldn't hear a word she sang & to be honest struggled to even make out what she was singing at times. Maybe the people standing right at the front had a different experience, I hope so.
I was expecting an amazing but night but left after 25 minutes. Waited for years to see Lauryn Hill, pretty gutted !!

Review of Ms. Lauryn Hill

Overall rating: 1.5

A total disgrace, you could not hear a word Lauryn Hill sang, we paid good money for 3 tickets and it was a total waste of money, my partner and his daughter loved her in the late 90's but not any more, we actually left early because we could not bear to listen to the crap any longer and we were not the only ones, everyone who sat in our area thought it was terrible, at first I thought it was the sound company that had messed up but then my partner pointed out you could hear the backing singers clear enough so it was obviously her who 20 years on cant sing for toffee, his daughter said the experience has shattered her childhood memories of Lauryn Hill, the only good part of the show for us was DJ Reborn, enjoy your retirement fund Lauryn and stay retired so others dont waste money coming to listen to you sing and not be able to understand a single word. VERY DISAPPOINTED
