In news that will shock absolutely no one when legendary hip-hop trio Fugees performed for their pop-up reunion tour preview in New York City, it was over three hours late.
In addition, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel delighted the 3,000-strong audience.
"Respect the miracle of this union," Hill told the lucky night owls, according to the Rolling Stones review.
"Respect that we can still get on stage and do that."
The live band had brass accompaniment in a suit and tie and introduced the legendary trio with the help of background singers.
At the beginning of the set with “The Score” and “How Many Mics” the fans held out for “Fu-Gee-La” before shaking the floor of the venue with their rough dance.
Targeted at President Joe Biden's handling of the Haitian migrant crisis, Jean criticized the US government's handling of its Haitian compatriots compared to Afghan refugees.
