Lauryn Hill at Rock the Bells 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Lauryn Hill

Other than Switzerland's Openair Frauenfeld and Ottawa's Bluefest, Lauryn Hill doesn't appear to have much in the way of live shows this year, but it was just announced that she'll play a NYC show on June 2 at Highline Ballroom. She'll be performing music from her classic LP The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (which she performed in full at Rock the Bells 2011) and more. TIckets (which are $125 for general admission or $250 for VIP/post-show meet and greet) for that show go on sale Monday (5/28) at noon. Doors are at 6 PM and the show starts at 8 PM... but what time will Lauryn show up?

A list of all dates and some videos from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill below...

---

Lauryn Hill - "Doo-Wop (That Thing)"

Lauryn Hill - "Ex-Factor"

Lauryn Hill - "Everything is Everything"

Lauryn Hill -- 2012 Tour Dates

Yes, I'm sure that she will show up. Your VIP tickets sound like an excellent idea.

I recently paid $100 to meet all of the original members of Nirvana. Unfortunately one of them didn't fucking show up! Typical rock star bullshit. Maybe if I spend $250 on this it'll make up for it?

Anybody remember that radio loser the Greaseman back in the 80s and 90s? He made some racist comment about Lauryn Hill and her album back around 1998 or 1999 and he had this big, melodramatic, overemotional press conference which can be found on Y-Tube with Howard Stern goofing on it. It's hysterical.

all joking aside, please, please do not throw your money away on this show

I saw Lauryn Hill at The Blue Note and she was fantastic. I have proof: http://handcraftedbymartin.com/l1/

If that is your proof Martin 2:43, I would say your evidence is flimsy at best. She plays the same fucking show all the time now. Yes it is def not a bad show but certainly not worth 125 bucks or the amount of time you will be standing around waiting for her to show up and perform

Couldn't be less interested in the subjects of this or the prior post. But what the fuck do you care?

Martin just wanted to show off & let everyone know that he was in the front row, up against the stage at the Blue Note.

She is most definitely back. You should check out her performance at Indigo2 in London on 14th April 2012. She was fantastic!!!

She also performed a sample of a new song "Fearless Vampire Killer" at The Warner Theater 2/29/12.

She is indeed worth seeing if you are a fan.

She sucks. I remember a long time ago when publications thought she would be a lock for the R&R Hall of Fame. LOL.

Post-show meet and greet??? There is no fucking way that actually happens

The only positive comments on this thread are from her PR firm

buy the VIP tickets, they'll be refunded.

and the video at 2:43 was hard to watch. what the hell happened to her?

can someone actually fix her so she can make music again? she was so talented.

Posted by Anonymous | May 23, 2012 8:27 PM

yo dead ass anyone who buys tickets for this is a sucker...i've said this before and i'm gonna say it again, lauryn hill is a freakin hustler. she's probably run out of money from the fugees and a very classic album, and needs more. so since she's a hot commodity she feels like she can charge whatever she wants, throw shows without having anything new to promote (hustlin the same shit), and show up late since she doesn't give a damn about fans. 125 per ticket...you've got to be joking...i'd rather pay full price for her album at virgin megastore circa 1990s prices not on sale and keep the change. this whole thing is just insulting. sorry l-boogie but unless it's a real reunion you're not getting a drop of my gwap.

You mean to tell me they ain't locked dis bitch up for sumfin yet?

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 12:35 AM

10:06 - she's not a hot commodity. Thus the small capacity venue. She's a forgotten, irrelevent entertainer who decided not to work for a living.

nice, i get to pay $250 to maybe ask lauryn hill what the fuck happened to her life

Posted by Anonymous | May 24, 2012 5:18 PM

I was there and after being terribly disappointed by her the last two times I saw her, last night she turned it out! She went on about 45 minutes after her opening act finished (not too bad) and played a solid two hour set. She's BACK!

Posted by Brandon | June 3, 2012 1:14 PM

Brandon moron, she plays over 2 hours every time she has been here of late. Saw the setlist as well, same stuff she played the last few times she was here.
