A Man Is Suing Madonna Because Her Concert Started Hours Late
We’ve all heard ‘Hung up’ so we know time goes by so slowly for Madonna and one (ex) fan is fed up.
According to the suit filed by a Florida man, Madonna has a “long history of arriving and starting her concerts late" and to accommodate her lateness a show was rescheduled to start two hours later at 10.30 pm.
Nate Hollander filed the class action lawsuit against Madonna after a show he planned to attend in Miami Beach was delayed. Mr. Hollander purchased three tickets to the 'Madame X Tour’ concert scheduled to start at 8.30 pm for the sum of US $1024.95.
Hollander’s complaint states that when he found out the show had been pushed back to 10.30 pm due to Madonna’s tardiness he did not want to attend the show anymore. Concert promoter Live Nation would not refund him his money, according to the lawsuit.
According to NBC News the suit claims, "Ticketholders had to work and go to school the next day, which prevented them from attending a concert that would end at around 1:00 a.m."
Hollander claims Madonna and Live Nation "knew or should have known that said concerts would not start at 8:30 p.m." due to her showing up late to many previous shows and is now suing for breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation. He is also seeking damages.
The suit against the singer and tour promoter Live Nation alleges at the start of the tour, which started up in September, Madonna repeatedly arrived hours late to her shows.
NBC News states that according to KVVU in Las Vegas, fans reportedly booed Madonna and chanted for refunds after a show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace also started two hours late. They reported that the concert was scheduled to start at 10:30 p.m. but the singer did not hit the stage until 12:30 a.m.
Madonna responded to the Las Vegas crowd two days later in a video she posted on Twitter. In the clip, Madonna is sitting on a piano and proclaims, "Here's something that you all need to understand. And that is, that a queen is never late." She even had the royal courage to caption the video with "F.A.C.T.S."
I mean, did they expect an apology. After all B*tch she’s Madonna!
