Madonna angered a crowd of her fans when she ended her Paris show after a short 45 minute show. The Material Girl took the stage around 10:15pm and wrapped up by 11pm. Madonna was booed and even called a ‘slut’ by an angry audience that expected more of a show than she gave. Was this supposed to be a mini concert?
After performing for only 45 minutes, the pop star incurred the wrath of concertgoers who gathered in front of the Paris concert venue to demand their money back.
French fans took Madonna’s “Express Yourself” lyrics seriously on Thursday night when they booed and expressed anger at the singer for cutting short her show at famed Paris concert hall l’Olympia after about 45 minutes.
After Madonna left the stage, fans remained in their seats booing and yelling insults like “salope,” the French word for “slut.”
Madonna took the stage at about 10:15 p.m. and finished around 11 p.m.
The concert venue was filled mostly with big Madonna fans since the tickets for the show were available only to members of her official fan club before being released for sale to the general public. The concert was broadcast live via YouTube.
The concert was added to the singer’s tour just last week and sold out after just a few hours, with Material Girl devotees paying from 80 to more than 280 euros for the limited seats. Hundreds of fans gathered outside several hours before the show to fill the Olympia’s 2,700 seats, and many slept on the streets overnight from Wednesday to Thursday. After the show, many fans gathered in the streets in front of the theater and yelled “remboursez! remboursez!” (“give us our money back!”).
Several fans expressed their discontentment on Twitter late
into the night. One fan wrote in French “280€ for a seat + 10 minutes of a speech + 40 minutes of a show + 2 days of camping in front of the #Olympa = #Madonna #MDNA #Paris #thatsucks” and another wrote, also in French, “#Madonna 45min/250€ vs @springsteen 3h40/65€ … what’s the better deal, there’s nothing left to say! #MDNAOlympia.” Another wrote: “How much does it cost to see Madonna at l’Olympia? It’s 6.3 euros per minute!”
