NEW YORK, NY – Pop music icon Madonna is facing legal action from disgruntled fans who attended her recent concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fans have filed a lawsuit against the singer and Live Nation, the concert’s promoter, claiming that the show started over two hours later than the advertised time.
According to the lawsuit, Madonna’s concert was scheduled to begin at 8:30 pm, but did not start until 10:40 pm, causing many concertgoers to be unable to stay for the entire show due to the late hour on a weeknight. The lawsuit alleges that the late start time has caused considerable inconvenience and financial loss for the fans.
This is not the first time Madonna has faced criticism for late concert start times. In December, fans sued the pop superstar over similar claims of a late start at a concert in New York City. The lawsuit alleges that Madonna’s tardiness violated New York’s “Safe and Fair Concert-Going Experience Act,” which requires ticketed events to begin within 30 minutes of the advertised time.
Madonna’s representatives have not yet commented on the recent lawsuit, but the legal action has sparked a conversation about the responsibility of artists and concert promoters to respect the time and schedules of their fans. While some fans may be understanding of unforeseen circumstances, others argue that a consistent pattern of late starts shows a lack of consideration for the audience.
As the legal battle unfolds, it remains to be seen how Madonna and Live Nation will respond to the claims made by the disgruntled fans. This situation serves as a reminder of the expectations and responsibilities that come with live performances, and it will likely prompt discussions about industry standards and the rights of concertgoers.
