The first of two UK shows is subject to a lengthy delay...

LIL' KIM's headline performance on first date of her small UK tour was delayed for almost two hours last night (June 23).

Kim performed the first date of a short, two date stopover with a show at the London Forum.

Eyewitnesses at the venue claim that Kim, who was scheduled to appear 8.45pm, did not arrive on stage until 10.30pm.

Support on the night came from UK crew Black N Bronz and the acclaimed So Solid Crew - both were on before 8.30pm.

However, after So Solid Crew finished their set, the increasingly restless crowd were left waiting until approximately 10.15pm before Kim's DJ Ritchie Ritch came on the microphone behind the curtain to tell everyone that they needed more time. The exact reason for the delay is currently unclear.

When Kim arrived on stage at 10.30pm, wearing a small white t-shirt - diamond
medallion, belt and key chain, she performed for approximately 30 minutes.

For the first three songs she wore a black boiler suit which she then removed during to reveal a pair of black frilly knickers.

Songs performed included her cover of 'Lady Marmalade', which is likely to go to Number One later today, as well as other tracks 'No Time', 'How Many Licks' and 'No Matter What They Say'.

Kim is scheduled to play the second, and final date on her UK tour this evening (June 24) at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall.
