The firm behind Madonna’s Abu Dhabi gigs has issued a statement regarding the delays in the start of the concerts .
FLASH Entertainment said: “Following recent reports in the media, FLASH Entertainment and Live Nation would like to acknowledge that the Madonna concerts at the du Arena, Yas Island began slightly later than some fans expected.
“Whilst show times were never publicised, we do appreciate that many fans expected Madonna to take the stage  between 9.30 and 10pm on both nights.
“Unfortunately, over the course of the weekend, a series of unforeseen technical issues  resulted in slight delays to rehearsals and performance times. We hope that concert goers can appreciate that with events of this scale, occasionally, unexpected circumstances can impact on plans.
“FLASH Entertainment would like to thank the many thousands of fans who have flown in from all over the world for what has been two truly memorable nights and we wish to thank everyone for their support and understanding.”
However, others also praised the concerts.
