News about Madonna Sued
On January 17, two Madonna fans, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden filed a lawsuit against the pop singer, Live Nation and the Barclays Center alleging “false advertising, negligent misrepresentation and unfair and deceptive trade practices.” The lawsuit, lodged in Brooklyn federal court, claims that Madonna’s December concerts in Brooklyn began over two hours late causing inconvenience to concertgoers who faced challenges with limited transportation options and increased costs due to the late hours.
The legal action emphasizes instances of Madonna’s past tardiness both during earlier tours and the recent “Celebration Tour” concerts in Boston and Washington D.C. According to Setlist.fm, a crowd-sourced concert-tracking website, Madonna typically starts her shows around three hours after the venue doors open.
For the specific Brooklyn concerts in question, Setlist.fm recorded start times of 10:50 p.m. on December 13 and 10:20 p.m. on December 14 and 16. The lawsuit underscores the impact on attendees, many of whom had work or family responsibilities the following morning.
Representatives for Madonna, Live Nation and the Barclays Center have not responded to requests for comment as of January 18.
The lawsuit seeks a jury trial and is classified as a class action, potentially including anyone who bought tickets to the mentioned shows. It asserts that Fellows, Hadden and potential plaintiffs “suffered actual harm” due to Madonna’s late starts, experiencing “annoyance, harassment, time, frustration and anger.”
