    Other than Madonna herself, the lawsuit also names Forum Entertainment, Kia Forum, Acrisure Arena, the Golden 1 Center, and Chase Center alongside Madonna and Live Nation. The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages for breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, emotional distress, unfair competition, and false advertising.

    Madonna has not yet commented on the lawsuit. However, this is not the first time she has been subject of legal action over late concert starts. In January, two other fans had sued her for starting a concert late at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Madonna’s legal team had moved to dismiss that lawsuit at the time.

    In defense, the legal team argued that no reasonable concertgoer would expect the headline act to start at the ticketed time. They also claimed that the advertised time was for the venue doors opening.

    As the legal proceedings continue, both sides are preparing to present their arguments in court, while it remains to be seen for the fans what ensues further.
