Concert organizer MOJO is again warning visitors on Saturday to be mindful of the late ending time of Madonna’s show. her spokeswoman said on Saturday morning, after the singer kept the audience waiting for hours at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome on Friday evening.
The organizer also warned in advance of a later finishing time and advised visitors to arrive by car or monitor public transport times closely. Madonna started her concert on Friday at 10:30 p.m., about an hour and a half later than scheduled. The show finally ended around 12:45am. While the 65-year-old singer waited, flute concerts blared in the hall, and fans shared their displeasure on social media.
MOJO cannot say when Madonna will appear on stage Saturday night. “Madonna decides it and we have no influence on it,” Mojo says. “We ask the public to be mindful of the later completion time.”
It is nothing new for the “Queen of Pop” to make her fans wait for her performances. The singer has done this before during her current tour, and has also shown up late often in the past. For example, in 2016 she only appeared on stage in Australia at 11:30 p.m. Madonna then thanked the audience for waiting more than two and a half hours. “I was here too early,” she joked. “You should have taken the time to do your hair and makeup so I wouldn’t be late.”
