Sometimes, time is money. That’s a lesson that Madonna is about to learn, the hard way.
Two fed-up (ex?) Madonna fans, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, filed a lawsuit against the singer after a recent concert started 2 hours later than the scheduled time.
They are suing for damages, calling the late start a “wanton exercise in false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.”
The fans who filed the suit are targeting 3 December performances that started significantly later than their scheduled time.
Reportedly, Madonna has a long history of not starting her shows on time.
Reactions to the lawsuit are mixed online, but hey, I get it…
Can you imagine having to wait 2 extra hours…just to see this?
TMZ originally reported on the lawsuit:
Madonna may have to learn a lesson in punctuality the hard way … two men just filed a class action against her for starting her concerts late.
According to the docs obtained by TMZ … Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden are leading the charge against the legendary pop star and concert organizer Live Nation claiming they owe big damages after shows scheduled to start at 8:30 PM ET didn’t end up starting until 10:30 PM.
According to the lawsuit, the late starts constitute a “wanton exercise in false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.”
The plaintiffs are suing for unspecified damages and taking aim at all three nights Madonna showed up late to Barclays Center in December — but they say Madonna has a long-documented history of not starting on time (more on that later).
Madonna is being sued by two fans after allegedly starting her concert late.
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, a lawsuit was filed against the Queen of Pop, 65, in New York on Thursday by two concert-goers who are accusing her of “false advertising” after her Celebration Tour show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in December began late.
The plaintiffs claim in the filing that the Grammy winner’s concert they attended on Dec. 13 started at 10:30 p.m., despite the tickets advertising that it would start at 8:30 p.m. The two fans have accused the delay, which they claim occurred again at the following Brooklyn concerts on Dec. 14 and 16, of being a “wanton exercise in false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.”
The suit names The Celebration Tour promoter Live Nation and the venue Barclays Center, along with the pop icon.
The complaint states that the two fans “would not have paid for tickets” had they known about the start time and that “many ticketholders who attended concerts on a weeknight had to get up early to go to work and/or take care of their family responsibilities the next day.”
