Madonna: Lawsuit after revealing concert

Madonna: Lawsuit after revealing concert

Exposed to pornographic content without warning? A concert-goer sues Madonna after one of her performances.

Madonna’s (65) “The Celebration Tour” was a complete success – but she is now facing legal repercussions again. A visitor to her concert on March 7, 2024 in Los Angeles allegedly sued the Queen of Pop. The man names six points in his lawsuit against Madonna and the concert organizers. According to the magazine, they are: breach of a written contract, negligent misrepresentation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, misleading advertising, negligent infliction of emotional distress and unfair competition.

The angry fan apparently complained, among other things, about being exposed to pornographic content without warning. Topless dancers were seen on stage simulating sexual acts. He felt like he was filming a porn movie, the man claims.

Heated atmosphere due to show and turned up air conditioning

The man is said to have felt not only psychologically unwell due to the revealing show, but also physically. The air conditioning in the hall was apparently turned up to the point of pain. He and other fans are said to have felt sick due to the heat. In response to complaints from the audience, Madonna is said to have asked the visitors to take off their clothes.

Madonna’s delay was also a breach of contract. Instead of starting at 8:30 p.m. as advertised in the gig’s advertisement, the show started at 10 p.m. instead of 8:30 p.m. When the singer finally showed up, she sang only playback instead of live. “Forcing consumers to wait for hours in hot, uncomfortable arenas and exposing them to pornography without warning is evidence of Madonna’s blatant disrespect for her fans,” the lawsuit concludes.

Not the first complaint about Madonna’s unpunctuality

The man is not the first visitor to sue Madonna for being late during the “Celebration Tour.” On December 13, 2023, the superstar did not appear on stage until 10:30 p.m., two hours after the announced start. Two fans sued Madonna because they could not easily get home after the show ended late.

The organizers defended themselves by arguing that no specific start time for Madonna’s performance was promised anywhere. “No reasonable concert-goer – and certainly no Madonna fan – would expect the headliner of a major arena concert to take the stage at the stated time,” they said in their statement. The delay was also said to have been due to technical reasons.

During her “Madame X” tour in 2019, a fan had already sued the notoriously unpunctual diva, but then withdrew his lawsuit. Despite the legal trouble, Madonna’s “Celebration Tour” ended with a record: she was the first woman to complete six tours with revenues of over 100 million dollars each.
