Madonna was fined by London's Wembley Stadium after the pop superstar finished her gig 40 minutes later than the planned show on September 11. As a result, the singer was asked to pay 50,000 pounds for every fifteen minutes she exceeded as a compensation for staying on beyond the venue's time limit.
"The concert was meant to start at 8.30 PM but Madonna didn't come on stage until 9.10 PM," a source said. "The gig ended at 11.10 PM, so she was quite a bit over. Her people knew about the possible implications for going over the curfew but this is a pretty hefty fine, even for Madonna."
Madonna's "Sticky and Sweet" tour wrapped up in Athens' OAKA Olympic Stadium on Saturday, September 27. Meanwhile, a tour for North America is expected to start on October 4 at East Rutherford's Izod Arena and a show for South American will begin in Buenos Aires on December 3.
