Because of Madonna they were unproductive at work and dedicated little time to their family.
With these reasons two fans of the pop star sued her for starting her New York concert late.
In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Brooklyn federal court, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden say they purchased tickets to a Dec. 13 show at Barclays Center as part of Madonna’s Celebration tour. The show was supposed to start at 8.30pm, but the musician didn’t go on stage until 10.30pm, as stated in the lawsuit.
At the end of the show the two spectators said they found themselves “abandoned in the middle of the night” and having difficulty getting home due to short bus routes and taxis that were too expensive due to nightly surcharges.
But not only that: having been so late would also have influenced theirs ability to “take care of family responsibilities the next day”, the lawsuit claims. Fellows and Hadden accuse Madonna, Barclays Center and tour promoter Live Nation of “unfair, unfair and/or deceptive business practices” for the late start time, which the pair say constitutes a breach of contract and “a capricious exercise of misleading advertising”.
Delays are not uncommon in the world of live music. Madonna herself has faced similar lawsuits: in 2019, when a Florida fan claimed that her delay in the Madame X tour was a breach of contract; and again in 2020, in a lawsuit filed by two New York spectators. Both suits were later voluntarily dropped.
