Pittsburgh - Only a fraction of the audience had stuck around when singer-rapper Lauryn Hill took the stage in Pittsburgh more than three hours late.

A disc jockey on the bill, DJ Motormane, tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Hill was at Heinz Hall by 17:30 to rehearse for Tuesday night's 20:00 show, but that her band apparently was delayed by weather.

Motormane played until about 21:30 followed by musician Paul Beaubrun, before Hill's DJ took the stage at 22:30.

The newspaper says Hill didn't take the stage until 23:20, playing until about 01:00 for those who stayed instead of requesting refunds.

Hill took to Twitter to apologise to her fans and explain why she took to the stage so late.

Hill's spokesperson didn't immediately comment on Wednesday.

But fans, who were not happy with Lauryn, lit up Twitter with comments.
