Madonna's Fans Withdraw Lawsuit Over Late Concert Starts

The 'Material Girl' hitmaker can breathe a sigh of relief as a lawsuit against her for late concert starts has been dismissed as the plaintiffs decided to drop the case voluntarily.

AceShowbiz - The 65-year-old music legend faced legal trouble when Michael Fellows and Jason Alvarez filed a class-action lawsuit, accusing her of breaching the contractual agreement with ticket holders. According to the plaintiffs, Madonna was supposed to begin her concert at 8:30 p.m. but did not take the stage until roughly two hours later, leading to significant delays.

In the early stages, concertgoers Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden expressed frustration, accusing Madonna of false advertising, negligent misrepresentation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices. They contended that real fans know to expect delays as Madonna has a reputation for starting her shows late. Nevertheless, they highlighted logistical challenges posed by the late starts.

Madonna's legal team fiercely defended the pop star, labeling the lawsuit as part of a "harassment campaign." They argued that true fans are aware that Madonna often takes the stage well after the advertised start time and that her performances extend late into the night. Additionally, they emphasized that no reasonable concertgoer would actually expect her to start at the ticketed event time.

The case took an interesting turn when the plaintiffs opted to dismiss the lawsuit with prejudice, which means they cannot refile it in the future. Although there were initial rumors of a settlement, Madonna's legal team clarified that no settlement had been reached and claimed that the lawsuit lacked merit.

Interestingly, the legal documents included screenshots of Hadden praising Madonna's tour on Facebook, suggesting that he had attended multiple concerts in the past, seemingly contradicting his claim of being unaware of her late starts. This contradiction was a significant point in Madonna's defense, further weakening the plaintiffs' case.
