The “Queen of Pop” started her Brooklyn concert late. So the concertgoers filed a lawsuit.
Last year, Madonna began her “The Celebration” tour, which caused a stir around the world. However, the “Queen of Pop” has not only attracted attention so far because of her musical performance, but also because of her chronic tardiness.
Two New York fans are now filing a lawsuit against the 65-year-old singer. According to this, the pop singer arrived on stage two hours late at three concerts in Brooklyn last month. They claim that most concertgoers were not able to leave the Barclays Center until after 1am. The consequences were limited public transportation and higher costs.
Plaintiffs allege that Madonna and her business partners breached contract, false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive business practices. They are demanding unspecified compensation. In addition to Madonna, the tour organizer Live Nation and the venue owner were also charged.
The Queen is never late.
This isn't the first time Madonna's delay has caused problems. In 2019, she was sued for not getting on stage at a concert in Las Vegas until 10:30 p.m. Her reaction at the time: “There's something you should all understand: The Queen is never late.”
It remains to be seen how the current legal process evolves. Madonna continues to walk her own path, even if it gets out of sync sometimes.
