“A queen is never late,” is what Madonna’s fans assure. The phrase would have gained echo, after the so-called “Queen of Pop” arrived late to a concert in New York City, in the United States, and two of her fans decided to sue her legally.
Last December, the interpreter of Vogue and Material Girl He gave a series of concerts in the “Big Apple” with great success; However, her viewers claimed that she should have started the show at 8:30 p.m., but she arrived at 10:30 p.m., that is, two hours later.
“We would not have paid for the tickets” if they had known that the concert would start at that time, the complainants stated, according to the portal. BBC.
The case was presented by Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, who claim that “many of the attendees attended concerts on a weekday night (Monday to Friday) and had to get up to attend work the next day; so they had to attend to “family responsibilities the next day.”
The lawsuit includes the company Live Nation and the Barclays Center for penalties of “false advertising, negligent misrepresentation and unfair and deceptive business practices.”
According to the facts, Fellows and Hadden attended Madonna’s concert on December 13, 2023, and notes that there were also delays at the same venue on December 14 and 16.
The lawsuit obtained by the aforementioned media details that “the defendants did not provide any notice to the owners”; so the concerts started after the time indicated on the tickets sold.
As an example, the complainants gave as examples the concerts of the “Rebel Heart Tour 2016” and Madame X Tour 2019 tours; in which Madonna also took up to two hours to leave.
On the other hand, Internet users have divided opinions regarding whether the preparation of the lawsuit was correct or not. Some of them said: “Arriving more than 15 minutes late is simply rude. Let alone two hours!”; “I hope they waste more time and money in court and more days of work are lost in this nonsense. If you have to get up early, don’t go to a concert Monday through Friday”; Others said that “I can’t believe someone would pay to go to their concert.”
So far, Madonna has not responded to the complaint.
