Madonna faces lawsuit over alleged late concert start

Advertised for 8.30 pm, the show allegedly began after 10.30 pm


Two dedicated Madonna fans, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, have taken legal action, filing a lawsuit against the pop sensation for a delayed start to her Celebration tour concert at Barclays Center on December 13.

According to a report on The Guardian, advertised for 8.30 pm, the show allegedly began after 10.30 pm, leaving the concertgoers stranded late at night and facing increased transportation costs.

The lawsuit, filed in Brooklyn federal court, claims that the late finish impacted the fans' ability to meet family responsibilities the following day.

Fellows and Hadden are accusing Madonna, Barclays Center, and Live Nation of "unconscionable" trade practices, constituting a breach of contract and "a wanton exercise in false advertising."

This legal action seeks class action status, aiming to represent other attendees of Celebration shows with delayed starts, including Madonna's upcoming concerts on December 14 and 16 in New York.

The story highlights that delays are not uncommon in the live music world, noting Madonna's past legal challenges in 2019 and 2020 over concert lateness, both of which were voluntarily dismissed.

Madonna's current Celebration tour, rescheduled from July due to a bacterial infection, is set to continue until its final stop in Mexico in April.

As of now, Madonna, Live Nation, and Barclays Center have not provided comments on the lawsuit.
