Madonna fans turned to social media to vent their frustrations after the Queen of Pop reportedly took to the stage more than an hour-and-a-half late at last night's performance in Abu Dhabi.
Music lovers also complained of soaring temperatures at the UAE capital's Yas Island du Arena venue, taking to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction.
“Madonna going on stage 90 minutes late is rude & disrespectful to her fans, especially when people have work the next day,” tweeted @FinancialUAE following the show.
Others suggested that the heat and humidity during the performance affected people's enjoyment of the concert.
Another fan @Meho_M tweeted: “I'm just about ready to pass out from exhaustion and the Madonna madness hasn't even started.”
Aside from the high temperature and delays in Madonna hitting the stage, other fans were dismayed that she did not play enough of her classic songs, instead concentrating on newer material.
“Wasn’t as good as expected. Heat, late start & too many new songs didn’t help,” tweeted @jaymathur.
At the time of publication, organiser Flash had not responded to Arabian Business's request for comment on how these issues would be addressed in time for tonight's performance.
Not all were disappointed though, with some fans thrilled with Madonna's performance - her first in the UAE. "#Madonna was spectacular last nite!What a legend!Truly EPIC!," tweeted @sophie_choudry.
The tour, her ninth to date, promoted the 53-year old US singer’s 12th studio album 'MDNA'.
Throughout her career, Madonna has sold over 300m albums, has been awarded seven Grammy Awards and holds the record for the most successful tour by a solo artist in history.
