You'd imagine that sticking with her through the lean times, and playing upwards of one hundred buck to see her would buy Madonna fans some home comforts and a little respect, right?


The Chicago date on her current tour was a little, erm, close, reports the Tribune:

[S]he made concertgoers who paid as much as $380 a ticket (plus service charges) wait 75 minutes past the starting time of 7:30 p.m. before taking the stage. And though there was no official comment from tour promoters or the singer's camp, the air-conditioning was undoubtedly shut off—apparently at the finicky Madonna's request. Before a note was played, fans already were perspiring like they'd just had a workout with the diva's dance choreographer.

We find ourselves wondering how Madonna would react if she was made to wait five - never mind 75 - minutes for anything.

Thanks to Jim McCabe for the link.
