Madonna fined by Wembley Stadium

Pop superstar Madonna is being fined £135,000 by Wembley Stadium for starting and staying on beyond the venue's time limit during a performance there.
Madonna went beyond the stadium's strict 10:30pm curfew by 40 minutes Sep 11, reports She has been charged £50,000 for every 15 minutes she was late.
A stadium source said: 'The concert was meant to start at 8:30pm but Madonna didn't come on stage until 9:10pm. The gig ended at 11:10pm, so she was quite a bit over. Her people knew about the possible implications for going over the curfew but this is a pretty hefty fine, even for Madonna.'
Madonna is not the first pop star to fall foul of Wembley’s curfew. George Michael was fined £130,000 when his concert also ran over time last year.

i think maybe this is to do with the sound problems - could it be the officials of wembley purposley dulled the sound to avoid reprocusions from people who live in the area?

bit of a coincidence

shame the fine isnt going to pay back all of the people who had a crap time!!! STill really really bitter about the huge let down of this night


just lose change! so were dose the money go?? not to us that were stuck for hours trying to get home!


im glad madonna was fined-not that she'll notice that money gone from her fortune anyway.i was one of the people kept waiting at wembley-& had to miss the end of the show,as i had a coach to catch-fans were leaving in their hundreds-before the last song-serves her right.i think it was very disrespectful of her to just ignore the shows official start time-fans travel from all over to see her-but they do have homes to get back too.maybe she should have a little more thought for the people who put her where she is today.
