Madonna Nearly 3 Hours Late for Australia Show

(Radio.com) Did the massive time difference between Los Angeles and Australia create a hiccup in Madonna's schedule? The singer was set to perform in Brisbane, Australia on March 16th for the first time in 22 years, but she ended up being almost three hours later.

Madonna's show was supposed to start at 9:00pm, but audiences were told it had been delayed and pushed back to 10:30pm. Even then, she didn't end up taking the stage until 11:22pm (via Newser).

To make matters worse, she deflected blame by teasing the audience. "It's you people that get here early that's the problem," she reportedly said. Stay home, do your hair and makeup, have a tequila. Roll yourself a fat one Just come late and I won't have to come early." Needless to say, the crowd wasn't amused.

This isn't the first scheduling issue Madonna has had while in Australia. On March 10th, she performed a new show "Tears of a Clown" in Melbourne, and arrived over four hours late that time (via CBS NEWS). Even though it was scheduled to start at 8pm, Madonna didn't begin the show until 12:50am. Read more here.
