    Hectic: Madonna Sued for Starting her Concert Two Hours Late

    Have you ever heard of anyone holding an artist literally accountable for starting a show late?

    Well, some fans are showing us that its doable as Madonna is currently facing legal action from two of her concertgoers, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, who attended her New York City concert.

    The lawsuit claims that the singer and event organizers provided false information about the show’s start time. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court of Eastern New York, alleges that Madonna, Live Nation, and Barclays Center engaged in “unconscionable, unfair, and/or deceptive trade practices.”

    Fellows and Hadden assert that the show they attended on December 13th during the Brooklyn leg of Madonna’s Celebration Tour, advertised to start at 8:30 p.m., did not commence until “between 10:45 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.” They claim similar delays for the shows on December 14 and December 16 at Barclays Center, without any warning.

    The lawsuit, brought forth by the two New York residents, contends that the alleged two-hour delay caused the concert to extend beyond 1 a.m., resulting in difficulties with limited transportation options and increased costs. Additionally, they argue that the late start affected their ability to fulfill work and family responsibilities the following day due to inadequate sleep.

    Fellows and Hadden assert that Madonna has a “long history of arriving and starting her concerts late,” citing previous tours like the 2016 Rebel Heart Tour and the 2019-2020 Madame X Tour. They claim that Madonna’s habitual tardiness amounts to “false advertising” and “negligent misrepresentation.”

    In their legal pursuit, the two fans are seeking various forms of damages, including statutory, treble, and exemplary damages, along with costs and attorneys’ fees.
