Lauryn Hill fans that attended the singer’s disastrous Atlanta show at Chastain Park Amphitheater can receive a full refund.

Hill showed up more than two hours late to a recent show at the venue and was only able to perform for less than 40 minutes due to the amphitheater’s 11 p.m. curfew. She later issued a statement telling fans that she will make it up to them. No further details have been released at this time.

Live Nation’s Director of Marketing, Holly Clausen, said she can’t speak on all venues and musicians, but they’ve never had an artist show up nearly two and a half hours late to a scheduled show before, so they’ve never had to issue refunds in this manner.

“We’re doing this because she only performed for 37 minutes,” she said.

Clausen said it is “not for public knowledge” whether Hill was paid for the show.

Refunds are available at the point of purchase, including the venue’s box office, Ticketmaster and Live Nation, and Groupon.

Fans who purchased their tickets through the amphitheater’s box office will have to return on the date the venue is hosting a show. The next event is Willie Nelson’s May 20 concert. 

According to Baltimore’s Fox45, the singer has cancelled an upcoming show in Baltimore that was scheduled for May 12. She is scheduled to perform tonight (May 10) in Richmond.
