"And that is, that a queen is never late".

Madonna performs live on stage after the 64th annual Eurovision Song Contest held at Tel Aviv Fairgrounds on May 18, 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

And despite the cheers that came from the crowd, not everyone agrees.

We've all heard "Hung up" so we know time goes by so slowly for Madonna and one (ex) fan is fed up.


Madonna is angering fans due to the start time at her recent concerts.

Florida man Nate Hollander spent $1620 on three tickets for the Madame X tour next month, which was scheduled to start at 8.30pm.

The lawsuit maintains that Hollander's tickets lost considerable value after the singer delayed the start time of her remaining shows by two hours. Mr. Hollander purchased three tickets to the "Madame X Tour" concert scheduled to start at 8.30 pm for the sum of United States $1024.95.

Meanwhile, entertainment news website Wonderwall reports that more than 500 refunds were issued following Madonna's scheduled 10:30 p.m. Thursday night show at the Caesars Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas.

Hollander claims he had bought three tickets for $1,024.95 in August for Madonna's December 17 concert in Miami Beach, which at the time of purchase was slated to start at 8:30 p.m., TMZ reported. Since Hollander purchased tickets, Madonna has had a history of starting her show up to two hours late, prompting her to move the official start time. Hollander, who has gathered up other ticket holders for the lawsuit, says it's ridiculous for a Tuesday evening show to begin at 10:30 PM and also makes his tickets less valuable.

Hollander's filing claims ticket holders "suffered actual and consequential damages including, but not limited to, loss of consideration paid and the devaluation of the ticket".

CNN has reached out to Madonna and Live Nation via email and voicemail, but requests for comment have not been returned.
