Madonna booed for starting show late in Philly
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Many Madonna fans are wondering if the “Material Girl” owns a watch after she took the stage late in Philadelphia Tuesday evening.
Some concert-goers were so frustrated that they left the Wells Fargo Center before the show even began.
The concert was scheduled to start at 8 p.m., but Madonna did not take the stage until about 10:30 p.m. Making matters worse for fans was the fact that the opening act was simply a DJ spinning some tunes.
Madonna fan Jen Gililand told Eyewitness News she paid good money to bring her 10-year-old to the show, but she had to leave before it started because of Madonna’s tardiness.
“It’s 10:15 … it’s time to go,” Gililand said…
…When Madonna finally did take the stage, she apparently apologized to the crowd. However, in typical Philadelphia fashion, Madonna was booed, not once, but twice. – [CBS Local]
Madge should know better than to start so late on a school night. (Even though school starts next week.) Let’s hope she starts on time at her two Yankee Stadium shows next week.
