“Madonna Faces Lawsuit Over Concert Delays: Fans Seek Justice for Late Starts πŸ•°οΈπŸŽ€

Madonna ‘sued by unhappy fans’ for being late to concerts | Metro News

The website discusses Madonna facing a lawsuit from disgruntled fans, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, who allege deceptive trade practices and false advertising. The lawsuit, filed in Brooklyn federal court, claims that Madonna consistently failed to start her concerts on time, breaching the advertised 8:30 p.m. start for the “Celebration” concerts in New York in December. The fans argue that the delayed start times caused them transportation difficulties and increased costs.

The legal action asserts that Madonna’s historical pattern of tardiness, spanning prior tours like the 2016 Rebel Heart Tour and the 2019-2020 Madame X Tour, justifies seeking class-action status for the lawsuit. The complaint emphasizes the artist’s demonstrated difficulty in ensuring timely performances and accuses her, along with Barclays Center and Live Nation, of wanton false advertising and negligent misrepresentation.

Notably, the lawsuit is a response to Madonna’s late starts on December 13, 14, and 16, with the plaintiffs contending that the defendants were aware of the optimistic speculation regarding show start times. The article mentions Madonna’s rescheduled concert run due to a past hospitalization for a bacterial infection, with the U.S. leg expected to conclude on April 15 in Texas. As of the report, representatives for Madonna and Live Nation had not responded to Variety’s request for comment.
