According to the document cited by ABC and Billboard, the North American leg of the Celebration tour began “as planned” at the Barclays Center in New York, “with the exception of a technical issue on December 13 during sound testing.” »
Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, who filed a complaint against the singer on January 17, offer a different version of the matter.
“The three concert evenings in the Barclays Center were supposed to start at 8:30 p.m., but Madonna didn't come on stage until 10:30 p.m. and the audience didn't leave the hall until after 1 a.m.,” denounce the two plaintiffs in court in a document 18 pages.
“Madonna showed difficulty and a certain lack of attitude in being on time or completing her shows […] resulting in hours of waiting for the concerts to begin […] and get stuck in the middle of the night,” the complaint continues.
During her first of two concerts in Montreal on January 18, Madonna took the stage at 9:50 p.m.
