Lauryn Hill Delivers at First U.K. Show in Five Years

Lauryn Hill

Lauryn Hill headed overseas for her first U.K. performance in five years at the indigO2 in London on Saturday (April 14). Despite her unpredictability, she silenced even the harshest of critics with over 90 minutes of Fugees classics and material off her groundbreaking album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Wearing a long metallic dress and natural hair, the former Fugees frontwoman delivered an energetic set including a cover of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Don’t Rock My Boat.”

At one point during the evening, the mother of six laughed off a near wardrobe malfunction. “Too much baby, no more breasts/ I’m losing my dress,” she said.

The Arts Desk praised Ms. Hill, writing, “She silenced the doubters with a fully commanding and controlling show,” while The Guardian said, “Her full control over her instrument is clear.”
