Pop icon Madonna risked the wrath of fans after showing up late to her first concert in the United Arab Emirates.
The superstar kept the crowd waiting for more than 90 minutes before she appeared onstage at the du Arena on Yas Island in Dubai on Sunday.
When she finally showed up, she was greeted with boos and scattered applause from impatient fans.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "It's pretty rare for locals to boo an act, they must have been seriously unimpressed. This will have cost Madonna loads in fines. She made a big effort to win back the crowd once she had arrived though."
Madonna is scheduled to play her MDNA show in Dubai once more on Monday night.
