Over the past few months, she has outraged fans for turning up to her concerts extremely late.

And despite the endless backlash, Madonna once again kept her loyal followers waiting for several hours as she failed to turn up on time to the first of her two gigs in Brisbane, Australia, on Wednesday night.

Due to kick off at 8pm, concert goers were told the songstress wouldn’t appear on stage at the entertainment centre until 10.30pm, but were then left waiting almost another hour before the star started the performance at 11.22pm.

‘She is an inconsiderate diva’: Madonna once again kept her loyal followers waiting for several hours as she failed to turn up on time to her gig in Brisbane, Australia on Wednesday night

Fans took to their social media sites to reveal their annoyance and vent their frustration, with one calling the 57-year-old singer an ‘inconsiderate diva’.

‘It doesn’t make you more of a rock star to be late to your own concert,’ one tweeted. ‘It makes you an inconsiderate diva.

‘I could have seen #LadyInTheVan in the time I will spend waiting for #Madonna to show up to #RebelHeartTour which would have been great.’

‘Madonna not getting on the Boondall stage until at least 10:30pm…,’ said another. ‘I am ‘this close’ to selling my ticket for tomorrow night. Too old 4 this.’ 

Although several fans of the star were angry, some jumped to Madonna’s defence.

An audience member remarked: ‘They announced @Madonna won’t be on before 10:30. I don’t f****** care I’ve waited 23 years what’s a few hours more. #myqueen #madonna.’

But one picture which appeared on social media showed disappointed crowd members leave the venue and head to the ticket office for a refund.

With tickets worth approximately $600, it is not yet known whether guests were given a refund.

Daily Mail has contacted a representative for the star for comment.

During the night’s proceedings, the American singer did, however, pay tribute to Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue, by singing one of her hits – much to the delight of her fans.

One had tweeted: ‘Madonna just sang #CantGetYouOutOfMyHead in Brisbane saying “I love Kylie”!!! Dear @kylieminogue I am officially in heaven now!’

It has been widely reported that the two stars are set to duet at Madonna’s Sydney gig, which takes place this weekend.

Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary fueled speculation last week after he shared a snap of himself with Kylie during the tour Down Under, he captioned the picture: ‘Having fun with the [email protected] #melbourne #australia ..’

Earlier this month, the US star outraged fans in New Zealand after she took to the stage one-and-a-half hours late. 

Prior to that, Madonna arrived for her performance close to midnight (three hours late) during her concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines.

And in January she was two hours late for the third time in one week during the American-leg of her Rebel Heart tour.

Elsewhere, for her one-off Tears Of A Clown show in Melbourne, Madonna were only allowed into the theatre space shortly before midnight – nearly four hours later than scheduled.

The doors were supposed to open half an hour before her free stand-up gig – a mixture of comedy, story-telling and music – planned to start at 9pm. 

Her constant lateness could affect the amount of money she makes during her tour as venues are able to fine artists who run over their dedicated time schedule.

According to Quays News, Madonna was reportedly fined ‘tens of thousands of pounds’ last December after she turned up to her concert in Manchester, England, an hour late.

In 2008, the superstar was fined a whopping £135,000 (AUD$258,326) for her late-running show at the Wembley stadium in London.

Meanwhile, documenting her return to Australia for the first time in 23 years, Madonna has announced that she will film her Sydney concerts at the Olympic Park this weekend.

These are the final two shows of her seven-month Rebel Heart world tour where the artist has performed 80+ shows in over 20 countries.

Throughout her global stint, Madonna has pulled several actors, comedians, fans, fellow musicians and even a news anchor to the stage for a special dance as her Unapologetic Bitch. 

This weekend in Sydney Madonna will choose a few fans as her ‘Unapologetic Bitches’ – all which will be documented by the taping this weekend.
