What people are saying

  • Malcolm Lange - 2 years ago

    After her Australian reviews i was worried her concert here would bomb. Haveing waited 20+years to see Ms Hill in pleased to say she really turned it on for her kiwi fans. The best concert I've been too. The sound was lacking in quality at times but Lauryn wasn't. Nas had a great gig as well. Thank you Lauryn you didn't disappoint and made a long term fan very happy indeed
