Concert Delay Drama: Madonna Hit with Lawsuit by Angry Fans

Date:

Madonna, the pop icon, is being sued by two fans, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, for starting her “Celebration Tour” concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn more than two hours late. The plaintiffs are suing Madonna, Live Nation, and Barclays Center for “unconscionable, unfair, and/or deceptive trade practices” for starting the show late, which they claim caused them “actual harm.” The lawsuit was filed in Brooklyn federal court on Wednesday, January 18, 2024.

The Allegations

The plaintiffs claim that they purchased tickets for the December 13, 2023, show, which was scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. However, Madonna did not take the stage until around 10:45 p.m. The plaintiffs allege that they “suffered actual harm” because of lateness, which includes, but is “not limited” to, “injury to their health, safety, and welfare, loss of their time, and other economic and non-economic damages”.The lawsuit accuses Madonna, Live Nation, and Barclays Center of “wanton exercise in false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.” The plaintiffs claim that they wouldn’t have purchased tickets if they had known the concert would start and end so late. The suit notes Madonna’s history of late concert starts. In 2012, a concert in Miami didn’t start until around 11:30 p.m. The singer’s Melbourne concert in 2016 started more than four hours late while her Brisbane show started more than two hours late.
