Written by Ella Melake on January 22, 2024
Two Madonna fans are suing her for being late by more than two hours for a show last month in New York, according to court documents.
According to schedules, the concert was meant to begin at 20:30 EST on all three nights however, in each case, it did not begin till after 22:30 ending at 01:00.
The plaintiffs said that they wouldn’t have paid for tickets had they known it would begin and finish late.
Many ticket holders who had attended the 3-day concert had to get up early to go to work and/or take care of their family responsibilities the next day.
They are suing promoter Live Nation and venue the Barclays Center for “false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices”.
Mr Fellows and Mr Hadden attended the show on Wednesday 13 December 2023, but the legal documents note that other nights at the same venue, on 14 and 16 December, also reportedly started more than two hours late.
“Defendants failed to provide any notice to the ticketholders that the concerts would start much later than the start time printed on the ticket and as advertised, which resulted in the ticketholders waiting for hours,” the document state.
