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.
