WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- A Florida ticketholder has filed a lawsuit against Madonna and events promoter Live Nation for making concertgoers wait for hours after changing the start time of her concert.
- TMZ reports that Nate Hollander stated in a suit that he bought 3 tickets for the Madame X Tour that said it starts at 8:30 p.m.
- However, the start time was switched to 10:30 p.m., making it difficult for Hollander to attend because he had to work the next day.
A group of angry Madonna fans is suing the US singer-songwriter for starting her Madame X Tour concert so late causing concertgoers to lose valuable time and money, said legal documents reported by TMZ.
Florida man Nate Hollander is suing Madonna and events promoter Live Nation for damages after delaying the start time of her concerts by two hours, which is different from was initially scheduled.
TMZ reported that in August, Hollander got three tickets worth $1,024.95 for Madonna’s ‘Madame X Tour’ concert in December in Miami Beach. At the time, the show was scheduled to start at 8:30 p.m. However, the pop icon moved the start time to 10:30 p.m.
The lawsuit stated that Hollander said he did not want to attend a concert that late so he tried to get a refund, which was denied by Live Nation. Due to the change in schedule, Hollander and all class members claimed that they suffered an extreme loss in value, making it more difficult to resell the tickets.
The 61-year-old ‘Material Girl’ singer has been known for her punctuality issues, the complaint states. She repeatedly arrived hours late to her shows making people wait for a long time before she hits the stage.
TMZ also reported that Hollander, along with a group of similarly irate Madonna fans whom he gathered for his lawsuit, said the start time was too late because most ticketholders had to work and go to school the next day.
Meanwhile, over 500 refunds were issued after Madonna’s night show on Thursday at the Caesars Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas scheduled at 10:30 p.m. had only started after midnight, according to the entertainment news outlet Wonderwall.
