Two Madonna fans have filed a lawsuit against the singer, accusing her of inconveniencing concertgoers after showing up hours late for her gig.

Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden claim the 65-year-old didn't take to the stage at Brooklyn's Barclays Center until 10.45pm on 13 December 2023 - two hours and 15 minutes after the scheduled 8.30pm start time, Sky News' US partner site NBC reported the civil action as saying.

The delayed start meant the show didn't finish until around 1am, leaving fans with "limited public transportation, limited ride-sharing" options or "increased public and private transportation costs at that late hour," lawyers Richard Klass and Marcus Corwin wrote.

As the show was on a Wednesday evening, the lawsuit went on to claim that many people who attended had to "get up early to go to work and/or take care of their family responsibilities the next day".

Mr Fellows and Mr Hadden claimed they had "suffered actual harm" because of Madonna's lateness which include, but are "not limited" to, "annoyance, harassment, time, frustration and anger", NBC reported the lawsuit as saying.

Delayed starts to the concert have been a reoccurring theme throughout the rescheduled tour, with the star taking to the stage between 9.50pm and 10.30pm, in Boston, Toronto and Detroit during her January shows, according to the Setlist.fm, a website that keeps track of songs and timings of major concerts.

Two and a half hours?! 

Madonna, girl, you almost died for this concert tour. I understand 10 or 20 minutes, but two and a half hours? 

Shit, I’d be pissed too, maybe not enough to actually spend money to sue her, but I’d be livid.

Why would anyone even buy a ticket to any of her concerts these days? She doesn't even sound good live. Also, she made it clear that she will never start a show on time and she's always unapologetic about it.

Honestly, she let that "Queen of Pop" moniker get inside her head way too much.

She needs to flop into oblivion to realize that she's wasting people's time and money with her delusional antics. She wouldn't be where she's at without her fans, LBR.
