According to ABC News, the concertgoers are "suing Madonna, Live Nation, and Barclays Center for "unconscionable, unfair, and/or deceptive trade practices" for promising the public that the concert would begin at 8:30 p.m. knowing that Madonna would not begin performing at the advertised start time." Fellows and Hadden are arguing that there was a breach of contract.

This isn't the first time fans have sued Madonna for similar issues. There were lawsuits in 2019 and 2020 citing similar circumstances.  In both instances, it was alleged that Madonna didn't get on stage until 2 hours after the scheduled time on the tickets.

ABC News reached out to Madonna's representative along with Live Nation and the Barclays Center for comment. We'll keep this article updated with any statements released from the above-mentioned sources.
