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

Concertgoers Michael Fellows and Jonathan Haden argued in the class action lawsuit Obtained by TMZ On Thursday, Madonna (65 years old) was not punctual during her “celebration” tour, which stopped at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The shows were supposed to start at 8:30 PM ET, but the “Like a Virgin” singer didn't take the stage until 10:30 PM.

Fellows and Haden alleged that Madonna showed up late to all three of her shows at the New York venue, which took place on December 13, 14, and 16, 2023.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs said the late start constituted “the intentional practice of false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.”

However, a source close to Madonna told Page Six last month that the delay was due to technical problems that occurred during a sound check.

In October, the Vogue singer kicked off her tour – which celebrates her four decades in the music industry – in London.

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

After embarking on the international leg of her Celebration tour, the mother-of-six said it was a “huge miracle to be here now”.
