Pop superstar Beyonce Knowles angered fans at her troubled show in Manchester, England on Monday night (3NOV03), after arriving onstage two hours late and performing a shortened set.

The R+B diva nearly had to cancel the show at the MEN ARENA after a stage manager fell 15 metres (50 feet) from a lighting rig above the stage.

However, fans are claiming they were left uninformed about the incident - and had to wait for two hours before Beyonce eventually appeared to play a shortened set.

One says, "There was no warm-up act and no explanation as to why we were being kept waiting.

"Eventually she came on and performed for about 45 minutes - but lots of people started booing and walking out."

Concert organisers have confirmed they are looking into the possibility of refunding upset fans who are demanding their money back.
