Madonna sued for ‘false advertising’ after starting Brooklyn concerts 2 hours late

Madonna and Live Nation have been sued by two fans for “false advertising” after the Queen of Pop started her shows late.

Concertgoers Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden argued in their class-action lawsuit obtained by TMZ Thursday that Madonna, 65, was not punctual during her “Celebration” tour stops at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The performances were supposed to start at 8:30 p.m. ET, but the “Like a Virgin” singer did not take the stage until 10:30 p.m.

Fellows and Hadden claimed Madonna showed up late to all three of her shows at the New York venue, which took place on Dec. 13, 14 and 16, 2023.

In the suit, the plaintiffs said the late starts constitute a “wanton exercise in false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.”

Page Six has reached out to Madonna’s rep for comment but did not immediately hear back.

“I don’t give a f–k if you’re Madonna,” tweeted one person. “If you’re 3 hours late, you’re just f–king rude.”

“Concert supposed to start at 8:30. Madonna started at 11pm. Whole arena chanting bulls–t at her lateness. Great show but went way too late,” added another.

However, a source close to Madonna told Page Six last month that the tardiness was due to technical issues that took place during her sound check.

In October, the “Vogue” singer kicked off her tour — which celebrates the four decades she has spent in the music industry — in London.

It was originally supposed to start in July 2023, but Madonna had to postpone it after being hospitalized for a “serious” bacterial infection.

After embarking on the international leg of the “Celebration” tour, the mom of six said it is a “f–king miracle that I’m here right now.”

“Less than four months ago, I was in a hospital and I was unconscious, and people were thinking, predicting that I might not make it,” she said in Belgium in October.

“I was given another chance. So I’m very grateful for that.”
