Madonna, the iconic pop artist, is at the center of a lawsuit filed by two of his followers, who allege that the singer was two hours late for one of his concerts. The legal action seeks compensation for waiting time and an alleged lack of time on the artist’s part. Viewers, who were eagerly awaiting the show, expressed their anger, prompting fans to take legal action against the Queen of Pop.
The case filed by two Madonna fans
Fans have filed a lawsuit against the artist, demanding huge compensation for the alleged damage caused by Madonna’s two-hour delay.
The artist and the company promoting his acclaimed Celebration Tour, Live Nation, responded to the request presented by Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, two of his followers who attended the concert on December 13 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in an official statement.
Today, the iconic artist and the mentioned company stated that they will strongly defend their position against the accusations and explained that the constant delay of the performer’s concerts is due to unexpected technical events.
Madonna’s response to the lawsuit filed by her fans
According to Madonna’s defense, in the show on that date, there was a problem that arose during the sound checks, which led to the postponement of the start of the show.
“The concerts in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center began as planned, except December 13 due to a technical hiccup during sound check,” the statement read.
However, the plaintiffs say that the artist did not comply with the terms of the contract established at the time shown at the ticket office. This non-compliance results in “unjust enrichment” on the part of the defendants, which creates adverse consequences for those allegedly affected.
The two fans admitted that they left the concert venue shortly after one in the morning, a time when it is most difficult and expensive to find public transportation to get home. It should be noted that, despite what happened, Madonna will continue her performances in 2024.
