Madonna sued by fans for allegedly starting show 2 hours late

Being a fan of someone makes us dedicate ourselves to them fully. All we want is to see our favorite artists grow more and more every time. Going to their concerts is still a dream for many fans. However, those fans who are lucky enough to enjoy these concerts want to see their favorites giving their best.

Whenever any inconvenience happens during concerts, the fans get furious as they have come to a long-awaited event for which they waited patiently. But when the concert starts late, it is a very frustrating situation to handle.

Two fans of Madonna sue her for starting her concert late

Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, a pair of New York City residents filed a lawsuit in a Brooklyn court Wednesday against Madonna, the Barclays Center, and Live Nation. They have charged them for unconscionable, unfair, and/or deceptive trade practices.

The musician’s “Celebration Tour” was advertised to begin at 8:30 p.m. Madonna did not make it to the stage until 10:30 pm and was almost two hours late, on all three nights at the Barclays Center according to the class-action suit. The concert took place in December.

Claims state that Madonna always starts her concerts two hours late

The fans even claimed that they were confronted with limited public transportation and limited ride-sharing along with increased public and private transportation costs with the show ending after midnight.

The suit states the delayed start time of the concert was not only a breach of contract between the plaintiffs and defendants, but also a wanton exercise in false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.


The pattern made the lawsuit earn class-action status

Madonna has a long history of arriving and starting her concerts late according to the filing. The lawsuit alleges the Material Giel singer has been tardy for other shows. It even pointed out that throughout her 2016 Rebel Heart Tour, her 2019-2020 Madame X Tour, and prior tours Madonna had continuously started her concerts over two hours late.

The lawsuit has earned class-action status due to this pattern in the New York court system, according to the filing.

Madonna had demonstrated flippant difficulty in ensuring a timely or complete performance. The Defendants were aware that any statement as to a start time for a show constituted, at best, optimistic speculation.

Madonna’s other concerts that were delayed

Madonna’s Dec. 13 show was pushed back by one hour due to issues during soundcheck. Hence, that caused the schedule to get delayed by an hour according to People magazine.

Madonna had a Celebration Tour in July 2023 which was postponed. It also marked her 40th anniversary in the entertainment industry. The reason for the delay was that the star suffered a “serious bacterial infection” that required an ICU stay in the month of June.

“At the time, we will need to pause all commitments, which includes the tour. We will share more details with you as soon as we have them, including a new start date for the tour and the rescheduled shows,” the statement said.
