Two fans, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, went to Madonna's concert at the Barclays Center on December 13.
According to the lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court, the 65-year-old pop star did not take the stage until 22.30, even though the concert was announced to start at 20.30.
"It affected their ability to fulfill their family responsibilities"
Fellows and Hadden left the concert at 1 a.m., after midnight, and said they faced a transportation cost because there was no public transportation. The late end of the weeknight program also affected their ability to "fulfill their family responsibilities the next day," the lawsuit alleged.
Fellows and Hadden accuse Madonna, the Barclays Center and tour promoter Live Nation of "unreasonable, unfair and/or deceptive trade practices."
Request for class action status
The lawsuit seeks class action status for those who attended Madonna's other late shows, including two concerts in New York on December 14 and 16.
This is not the first time Madonna has faced a lawsuit for being late. In 2019, a Florida fan claimed that her lateness on the Madame X tour was a breach of contract. Similar accusations were made in a lawsuit filed by two New York concertgoers in 2020. Both lawsuits were later dismissed.
