Madonna booed for late show start

London: Madonna faced the fury of fans after she kept them waiting for nearly two hours in 40C heat for her first concert in the United Arab Emirates.

Playing her first Middle Eastern concert on Sunday, she was booed after failing to show on stage at 9pm as scheduled.

“It’s pretty rare for locals to boo an act, they must have been seriously unimpressed. This will have cost Madonna loads in fines. She made a big effort to win back the crowd once she had arrived though,” the Daily Express quoted a source as telling The Sun.

Madonna is scheduled to play her MDNA show in Dubai once more on Monday night.
