Madonna being sued over late show starts

In the summer of 2012 my friend got me box seats to Madonna’s MDNA tour.  She started the show 3 hours after start time.  I remember looking down from my comfy box seat and seeing the 100’s of people standing in the insanely expensive floor area and thinking how if I was standing for 3 hours I would be planning Madonna’s death right now.

So the moment I heard someone decided to take action I was on board.

All love the queen of pop, but get your shit together.

Nate Hollander, who filed the suit in Miami, claims that he bought three tickets for a total of $1,024.95 to see her “Madame X” tour at the Miami Beach Fillmore on Dec. 17. But months after he bought the tickets, Live Nation changed the start time of the show, making it too late for Hollander to attend, his suit said.

The breach of contract suit claims that Madonna has a reputation for starting her concerts late, and that the opening show of the “Madame X” tour started 2 1/2 hours late. Because of her consistently late start times, the suit says, Live Nation changed the official start times of subsequent shows.

Additionally, Miami-Dade county has a curfew for teens under 18, which means that teens can’t be out in public without an adult after 11 p.m. Teenaged fans who planned on attending the upcoming show without an adult now cannot go at all.

Good luck to you, Nate.
