The Queen of Pop herself is being sued by a concert goer of hers for starting her show two hours later than advertised.
Madonna and her concert promoter, Live Nation, have been hit with a class action lawsuit. A concert goer by the name of Nate Hollander claimed that Madonna has a “long history of arriving and starting her concerts late”, and that as a result of that he will not be able to go to her concert in Miami Beach, Florida, scheduled for December 17, 2019.
The lawsuit claimed that Madonna's show in Las Vegas during the first week of November started at 12:30AM, despite being advertised to begin at 8:30PM, then pushed to start at 10:30PM. Hollander bought three tickets to that show, which cost him a total of $1,024.
“Ticket-holders had to work and go to school the next day, which prevented them from attending a concert that would end at around 1am,” the suit claims. “Hollander attempted, without success, to obtain a refund for the three tickets purchased for the Madonna concert.” Hollander also said that because of the change in the timing of the set's start, he couldn't resell the tickets without losing a substantial amount of money.
“All tickets purchased by Hollander and all class members suffered an extreme loss in value, making it impossible for Hollander and all class members to recover the amount paid for said tickets by reselling them,” the lawsuit claims. Hollander and others are suing the star for breach of contract and misrepresentation.
Neither Live Nation or Madonna's representatives commented on the lawsuit as of yet.
