LAURYN HILL CHICAGO THEATER
Lauryn Hill was fabulous. She sings from her heart. There was incredible diversity in her audience. The Age group of the audience expanded over decades. She spoke briefly about her absence from the stage, but I'm glad that she's back and she has not missed a beat. I appreciate that she's not driven to do what she does by the desire for wealth or fame but just for the love of MUSIC! If Lauryn Hill is ever in your area don't miss her show. There were no explosives, no wardrobe changes, no backup dancers, just plain old good SINGING!!

AMAZING PERFORMANCE BY MS. HILL
Ms. Lauryn Hill rocked the house tonight & reminded everyone why she is hip hop royalty. Her voice was stellar & her flow was L Boogie impeccable. The band, back-up singers & background graphics were excellent, as well. Ms. Hill performed just shy of two hours, and covered the classics from Miseducation , which had us on our feet dancing and singing along for the entire set. She was scheduled to hit the stage at 9:15pm. By 9:18 pm she entered the stage wearing a badass wide brim hat and a totally dope skirt. Then she just held court and did her thing. What a gift! Tonight was musical, but it was spiritual too. People—if you’re not a frequent concert goer, call the venue ahead of time to find out what time the headlining artist is scheduled to perform. That way you won’t run into babysitting issues and be disappointed. Just sayin... Last thing—DJ Reborn is tha truth! Didn’t see the first opening act. What I saw of Patoranking was really, really good. Happy 20th Fam!

The woman is Incomparable, just amazing. She did classic work on different music which was amazing to see her versatility. Appreciated every minute of Greatness and talent before my eyes. She sang the music as if it she created it recently showing the love and passion she has for her work is still there. She is just phenomenon!!!

Of course it was a while before her performance..and the 2 performers were good also even tho I didn't understand what they actually said but the music for both was good..but she got the crowd motivated..Kanye and Chance the rapper showed up too. Everyone I saw really enjoyed themselves... I only gave it a four because of the onterage and body guards that was with Chance getting in my way...but Lauryn was fire!!!!!

My wife and I were ready to see a great show and go on a date night that we rarely get a chance. The tickets stated the show started at 6:30 pm. So we schedule with our babysitter to be home by 9:30 pm. The ticket did not mention any prior acts to Ms. Hill so we thought 3 hours should be plenty of time. They did not let us sit in our seats until 7 pm or so and there were several act that played prior to the main act. I learned this morning she did not come on until 10 pm. $125 for ticket, $50 for babysitter, plus bad event schedule equals very disappointed!!!

WORST CONCERT EVER!
Ms. Lauren Hill took the stage 1.5 hours late. Sound quality was horrible, not sure if it was a band or venue issue. Her performance consisted largely of poorly remixed, almost unrecognizable versions of her older work. Total waste of time and money.
