Madonna Almost Three Hours Late To Concert In Brisbane, Fans Demanding Refund
MADONNA ALMOST THREE HOURS LATE TO BRISBANE CONCERT
A show that was set to start at 9 p.m. didn’t start until 11:22 p.m., local time at the Brisbane Entertainment Center.
Hundreds of angry fans had already left the venue by then and demanded refunds at the ticket office after a public announcement that the “Rebel Heart” show would not start before 10:30 p.m.
Madonna tried to make light of the situation when she finally took the stage: “We started late — that hardly ever happens,” she said. “You were here too early. You should have taken your time doing your hair and makeup. Then I wouldn’t have been late.”
The singer also added: ”It’s you people that get here early that’s the problem. Stay home, do your hair and makeup, have a tequila. Roll yourself a fat one … no, I don’t believe in that s**t.”
Madonna is set to perform another show tonight at the same venue and Live Nation released a statement that the singer might be late again.
The statement read: ”Following a late start last night, fans should note, the timing for tonight’s performance may also be delayed. We encourage concert goers to keep this in consideration when making arrangements to get home safely.”
The statement comes after concert goers were stuck at the venue waiting for taxis to get home due to the last train leaving at 12:15 a.m.
The singer has yet to comment on her lateness but tweeted, “See you tonight Brisbane!!! Wanted to be perfect for you!!! And we had so much FUN! ❤️ ”
