Madonna has angered fans again by starting a concert in Brisbane, Australia, more than two hours late. The pop star was set to start at 9 p.m. local time, but didn’t take the stage at the Brisbane Entertainment Center until 11:22 p.m.
She finished the show early Thursday morning, after the last train had left the venue.

Hundreds of angry fans had left the venue by then, and demanded refunds at the ticket office after a public announcement that the Rebel Heart show would not start before 10:30 p.m.

During the concert, she thanked the crowd that was near the venue’s 13,500 capacity for their patience, but joked they had arrived too early.
“We started late — that hardly ever happens,” she said. “It’s you people that get here early, that’s the problem. Stay home, do your hair and makeup, have a tequila. Roll yourself a fat one.”

The last train left the entertainment centre at 12: 15 a.m. — around an hour before the concert eventually ended. Long lines of concertgoers waited for taxis.

The venue and Madonna’s publicist did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but fans were not pleased.
It’s true that Madonna’s concerts have finished late. They should have finished in 1998.
