madonna faces lawsuit for delayed concert start time

Two fans filed a lawsuit against Madonna accusing her of “false advertising,” claiming that her December 13 show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn started nearly two hours late.

Prior to the two hours claimed by the lawsuit, Madonna had addressed the delayed start timings of her Brooklyn event, stating that there were “issues during soundcheck that caused the schedule to get delayed by an hour.”

Live Nation and Madonna’s management team responded to the suit in a statement which reads: “Madonna’s just completed, sold out 2023 Celebration Tour in Europe received rave reviews. The shows opened in North America at Barclays in Brooklyn as planned, with the exception of a technical issue December 13th during soundcheck. This caused a delay that was well-documented in press reports at the time. We intend to defend this case vigorously.”

The three concerts at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, which were part of Madonna’s Celebration Tour, were postponed from July to December because of the singer’s illness. Fellows and Hadden stated that they “would not have paid for their tickets had they known that the concerts would start after 10:30 p.m.” and that they anticipated their show (on December 13) to start on schedule.

“Defendants failed to provide any notice to the ticket holders that the concerts would start much later than the start time printed on the ticket and as advertised,” attorneys for the two men wrote.

The complaint names Live Nation and Barclays Center as defendants in addition to Madonna. Technically speaking, the complaint claimed unjust enrichment, breach of contract, and violations of deceptive advertising statutes and business practices in New York, among other wrongdoings.

The event organizers “knew or should have known” that the concerts would not begin at 8:30 due to purported historical instances of Madonna taking the stage late, and they should have advised spectators of this, according to the lawsuit, which also included a claim of “negligent misrepresentation.”
