Madonna’s pricey bill after arriving late on stage at Manchester Arena

27

AN INSIDER at Manchester Arena has told Quays News that Madonna’s team were required to pay a large fine, totalling up to tens of thousands of pounds, because she performed past the 11pm curfew on Monday night.

The US singer was in Manchester as part of her Rebel Heart tour, but disappointed some fans when she was an hour late starting her set.

Jamie Mountain, a student at the University of Salford, was amongst the crowd on Monday night, and told Quays News what happened.

One of the reasons why the curfew is in place is so that those attending the concert could catch the last trains of the day back home. Jamie said he noticed that some people had an issue with this, due to the concert finishing late.

Jamie said he found the situation “funny” when Madonna came on stage to address the crowd.

She announced:

“No selfish diva b**** reason. If you diva b****es want to keep complaining about it don’t come to my show.”

However, Jamie wasn’t happy when he discovered that the show had been cut short, despite paying near to £200 for his tickets.

Today, Madonna took to Instagram to share her side on what happened at the arena on Monday night. She explained exactly what went wrong technically and confirmed to her fans that she had to pay a fine.

The Material Girl singer also confirmed in her Instagram post, that it wasn’t her choice to end the show early.

Quays News have contacted Manchester Arena, asking them about the fine that Madonna reportedly had to pay for performing past the curfew, but they chose not to comment.

This isn’t the first time that an artist has been criticised for appearing late in Manchester. Beyoncé was approximately half an hour late on stage when her The Mrs Carter world tour came to Manchester Arena.
