Madonna keeps Brisbane fans waiting three hours

There is something breathtakingly arrogant about an artist taking to the stage late.

Madonna kept her fans waiting three hours for those who took the door time as gospel, two hours for those who figured there would be some kind of support, and 44 minutes for those who listened to the centre announcements saying she would take to the stage no earlier than 10.30pm.

In the end she rocked up at 11.14.

Really, she had made fans wait 23 years to see her, so when you have been waiting that long, what's another three hours.

And for the die-hard fans who had waited that long, the three hours would have felt like nothing. For the rest of the audience, it was tiresome, annoying and meant that a show that could have been done by 11pm finished well after 1am.
