Lauryn Hill apologizes to fans after 2-hour delay at Atlanta concert

Fans, musicians and media all weighed in on Lauryn Hill’s tardiness to her recent concert in Atlanta, causing the singer’s name to trend on Twitter for much of the day Saturday.

But the one person who remained silent was the singer herself.

On Sunday, in a message posted to Facebook, Hill said she is "figuring out a plan" to make it up to fans who waited more than two hours to see her perform at Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Friday. Due to her late arrival and the venue’s 11 p.m. curfew, the singer only performed for less than 40 minutes before her sound was cut off.

“I have nothing but love and appreciation for the fans in Atlanta, and regret not being able to give you a full show,” the Facebook message reads.

Hill, who's show was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET, took the stage around 10:20 p.m. She was forced to stop singing during her set because of a strict curfew that the venue, which is located in a residential area, enforces.

The crowd booed the singer when she first started the show and when she was forced to stop singing.

While a fan video seems to show Hill blaming her driver for her tardiness, her Facebook message makes no mention of the driver. 

Hill said she will announce details about how she plans to make it up to fans as soon as she has them.

Need Beyoncé tickets? AmEx and Uber are giving some away

Getting tickets to Beyoncé’s "Formation" World Tour has been harder than getting to the bottom of the “Becky with the good hair” controversy. Most of the shows are sold out. Unless you want to stand alone at one of the shows that still has available tickets, you’re going to have to shell out a couple hundred dollars minimum to nab a spot from which you can worship Queen Bey live.

But you might be able to get around that. Wednesday -- when "Formation" kicked off in Miami -- American Express and Uber announced a partnership that gives anyone (not just card members) the chance to win two tickets to one of Beyoncé’s 21 remaining U.S. shows. Here’s how the promotion works:

On the day of the concert in a participating city, you can request the “FORMATION” view in the Uber app, using the promo code FORMATIONAMEX. You can then request a FORMATION ride, and you could receive two tickets and a round-trip UberX ride to the concert in the city. Uber and American Express have both said that the demand will be high, and getting matched with a FORMATION ride isn’t a guarantee of tickets.

>> Does Beyonce's 'Lemonade' allude to a rocky relationship with Jay-Z?

Sure, the chances of hitting the Beyoncé/Uber jackpot probably aren’t great, but it may be more likely than you being able to come up with enough money to buy your own tickets and transport to the concert, at this point. As much as it would probably feel worth it at the time, the aftermath of blowing your budget to see Beyoncé will probably be as unpleasant as it is to be Rachel Roy right now.

There’s some consolation for people who request these Uber rides and don’t end up getting Formation tickets: If you happen to have an American Express credit card and are enrolled in their Membership Rewards program, you can earn two times the rewards points when you pay for an Uber ride with your card.

>> Surprise! Beyoncé serves up 'Lemonade'; fans lose their minds

American Express isn’t the only credit card with this sort of deal. It’s always smart to check with your credit card issuer to see if they offer any discounts with a certain service or if you can maximize your rewards with certain purchases. Of course, spending for the sake of credit card rewards can be a dangerous strategy, because credit card debt is expensive and high credit card balances can kill your credit score. You can keep tabs on yours by getting your free credit report summary every 30 days on Credit.com.

ZZ Top Coming to Dayton

Having shared the stage many times throughout the decades, ZZ Top and Gregg Allman are set to hit the road together this year, on a tour that will kick off in Huber Heights, OH on Tuesday, August 16th.ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons commented on the bond his band shares with Allman and the upcoming tour, “The history with ZZ Top and Gregg Allman together goes way back to around the time the earth cooled.  The double lineup makes for a killer combination so buckle up and let's have a party!  Rock on!”Formed more than four decades ago in the Houston area of Texas, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees ZZ Top continue to be a relentless touring machine. The bearded duo of singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist/singer Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard, aka “the man with no beard” have consistently rocked audiences with their brand of chrome-plated, electrified dirty blues. Hot rods, buzzards, B.B.Q., cacti, furry guitars and alluring women are some the many images that have become synonymous with the ZZ Top experience but their blues/rock sonic skew has kept them in forefront for longer than any US-based band.  Audiences can look forward to seeing them belt out timeless hits such as “Legs,” “La Grange,” Sharp Dressed Man,” “Tush,” and many more from their 15 studio albums. As a founding member of the legendary Allman Brothers Band and in his own storied solo career, Gregg Allman has long been a gifted natural interpreter of the blues, his soulful distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. Also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Allman more recently received the “Living Legend” award from Classic Rock Magazine, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the ABB. He continues to captivate audiences, as evidenced in his recent Gregg Allman Live: Back to Macon, GA live DVD/CD package, containing crowd favorites like “Statesboro Blues,” “Melissa,” “Queen of Hearts” and “I’m No Angel.”

Rolling Stones Cuba concert was mostly politics-free

The Rolling Stones have officially brought their music to Cuba with a performance that seemed mostly free of a political agenda.

>> Read more trending stories 

For years, many Cubans listened to bands like the Stones in secret because their music didn't line up with the government ideology. But Friday's massive, free performance was meant to show that Cuba is opening up to the rest of the world.

According to the band's announcement, the concert at Ciudad Deportiva de la Habana was "the first open-air concert in the country by a British rock band."

Frontman Mick Jagger and company mostly avoided any political statement during the show, except for acknowledging the band's presence in the country was a sign "times are changing."

Some estimates say nearly half a million people attended the celebratory performance.

The event capped off a week where a sitting U.S. president visited the country in nearly 90 years.

One concertgoer told The Guardian there is a feeling among Cubans that "something good" is happening.

But not everyone saw the concert as a sign of good things to come. One democracy activist said the government was using it as a symbol of an "opening that isn't really taking place."

And at least one world leader did take issue with the event — the pope, though it wasn't because of politics. The BBC reports he asked the Stones to postpone the concert because it conflicted with Good Friday.

The concert was a part of the Rolling Stones' America Latina Ole tour that is traveling through Central and South America.

They have also started a push to donate musical instruments and equipment to benefit Cuban musicians across all music genres.

Daryl Hall & John Oates are coming to Riverbend Music Center

Multi-platinum selling music artists and Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES announced a summer amphitheater tour today. The tour featuring Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, will kick off on Friday, May 13 and will include a stop in Cincinnati, OH at Riverbend Music Center on Wednesday, July 20. Friends of Daryl and John, Gene (Fred Armisen) and Clark (Bill Hader) from soft rock’s seminal band, The Blue Jean Committee, have created a special video announcing the summer 2016 tour: https://youtu.be/XNb5ZCR08ho. To see the whole story of the Blue Jean Committee check out the IFC app. The second season of Documentary Now! premieres in the Fall on IFC. Daryl Hall and John Oates are the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history. From the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch” from their six consecutive multi-platinum albums—’76’s Bigger Than Both of Us, ’80’s Voices, ’81’s Private Eyes, ‘82’s H2O, ‘83’s Rock N Soul, Part I and ‘84’s Big Bam Boom. The era would also produce an additional 5 Top 10 singles, “Sara Smile,” “One on One,” “You Make My Dreams,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Method of Modern Love.” By 1987, the RIAA recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the NUMBER-ONE SELLING DUO in music history, a record they still hold today. On May 20, 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. The award has previously gone to the Bee Gees, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Ray Davies, Carlos Santana and Dolly Parton. In 2014, Daryl and John were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. 2016 finds Daryl Hall and John Oates very much at the height of their powers making their own kind of soul, with a new generation of musicians recognizing not only their historic track record of success, but also their continuing influence and achievements.
