Miami Man Sues Madonna’s Madame X Tour Over Change in Start Times

“There’s something that you all need to understand,” Madonna said during her Las Vegas concert, while perched atop a piano, legs swinging. “And that is, that a queen is never late.”

A Miami Madonna fan, Nate Hollander, is suing the singer because the Material Girl is a night owl.

Hollander filed a lawsuit Monday in Miami-Dade County court against both Live Nation and Madonna.
He alleges that the change in start times for her Madame X Tour is a breach of contract made between the singer and the ticket buyer.
In August, when Hollander bought the tickets to Madonna’s December 17 show at the Fillmore Miami Beach, the concert was scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m., the lawsuit alleges.

But on October 23, Madonna and Live Nation changed the start time for that show and several others to 10:30 p.m., the suit alleges.

For those like Hollander, who bought tickets and now don’t want to attend a concert that late, a refund has not been offered, he alleges.

And attempts to resell won’t make up for the money lost, as tickets have now “suffered an extreme loss of value” because of the time change, he alleges.
That makes reselling “impossible,” he said.

Hollander originally bought three tickets to Madonna’s Miami Beach show, spending $1,024.95, he says in the filing.
But, since the show is now starting later than originally planned, he claims that he and other ticket holders “suffered actual and consequential damages including, but not limited to, loss of consideration paid and the devaluation of the ticket.”

Five hundred refunds have been given out since the class action lawsuit was filed, but Hollander is also suing for damages.
