Lauryn Hill Fails to Show Up for St-Tropez Show

Hill is canceling a planned performance in Tel Aviv because she wasn’t able to schedule a concert in the Palestinian city of Ramallah. The singer-songwriter said in a statement Monday, May 4, 2015, that she originally intended to perform in both cities in hopes of being “a presence supporting justice and peace.” (Photo by Barry Brecheisen/Invision/AP, File)

Lauryn Hill of the Fugees is a fugitive from the stage.

The singer has canceled concerts in Tel Aviv, London and Lagos, Nigeria — and, most recently, a Wednesday gig in St-Tropez at the Citadelle fort overlooking the Riviera harbor.

Neither Hill nor the concert’s organizers gave any reason for her no-show before a sold-out audience, the local paper, Var-matin, reported.

The mother of six, on a comeback since doing time for tax evasion, was in St-Tropez, just not on the Citadelle stage.

That same night, she turned up at the exclusive VIP Room nightclub in town, grabbed a mike and put on an impromptu show for its wealthy patrons.

The club’s owner Jean Roch was thrilled, he told the local daily Nice Matin, “because she’s a legend . . . [and] might not come to St-Tropez anymore.” Or be invited back for that matter.
