Madonna Seeks Dismissal Of Lawsuit Over Late Concert Start Times

Madonna is seeking the dismissal of a lawsuit filed against her for the late start times of her concerts.

In January, Michael Fellows and Jonathan Hadden, two Madonna fans who bought tickets to the December 13 date of her “Celebration” tour at the Barclays Center, filed a lawsuit against Madonna for starting the concert more than two hours past the stipulated 8:30 pm start time.

However, Madonna’s lawyers have requested the lawsuit be dismissed, arguing the plaintiffs’ claims of having to “get up early to go to work” after the concert ended after 1 am is not an “injury” worthy of damages.

“Plaintiffs speculate that ticketholders who left the venue after 1 a.m. might have had trouble getting a ride home or might have needed to wake up early the next day for work,” Madonna’s dismissal motion stated. “That is not a cognizable injury.”

The lawsuit has also accused Madonna of breaching contracts with ticket buyers as well as of “false advertising, negligent representation, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.”
