MADONNA has taken to Instagram to justify her late arrival to her concert in Manchester last night.
The legendary singer hit out at irate fans who booed her after she kept the crowd waiting for more than an hour.
In a lengthy post on her social media page this afternoon, she told fans: “FACTS: It’s good to have them before you jump to conclusions.”
FACTS: its good to have them before you jump to conclusions! The Entire video for my show crashed as I arrived for sound check. The back up file was corrupt. We had no choice but to reboot and pray for a good outcome. The video lights 75 % of my show. We cant play in the dark. We were rebooted and ready by 9:30 even though we planned to go ion earlier. I had to make cuts in show before show started. Dress you Up was one of them and my 3rd guitar song. This still brought us past the 11:00 curfew! But we went on and the venue was kind enough to extend till 111:39!! It was there choice not mine to end the show!! always want to finish. So we all missed the last 3 songs! And I’m sorry about that. And i thank all my Rebel Heart fans for understanding! We did our best! And we still had to pay a fine! That life. 😂. PS you still got to see an amazing show. And only missed. 12 minutes!! The ❤️#rebelhearttour goes on
As previously reported, Mondonna confirmed that she was late onstage due to technical difficulties with the video screens for her mammoth show.
She wrote: “The entire video for my show crashed before I arrived for sound check”.
The star, who said that the video screens light “75% of the show” later apologised for cutting her set list, but still said the fans still got to see “an incredible show”.
The so called Queen of Pop used choice language onstage at the arena by launching into a rant by telling fans to: “shut the f**k up” after furious audience members complained about her tardiness.
Technical difficulties caused the star to show-up at 10pm when she was due onstage just before 9pm.
The delay was said to be “out of the artist’s control”.
Disgruntled fans had paid up to £200 to see Madonna on her Rebel-Heart Tour with her Manchester date being the only stop in the North-West.
