Metro will stay open late tonight for Madonna concert

Metro service will again be extended an extra hour on Monday night to accommodate fans at Madonna’s concert at the Verizon Center.

Madonna second concert is scheduled for 8 p.m., though you can safely assume it will probably start late. The Sunday night concert was also called for 8 p.m, but the iconic pop star didn’t take the stage until 10:30 p.m.

Metro is using its the same game plan from Sunday night: Fans are to head to the Gallery Place or Judiciary Square stations after the show. Riders can exit at any of the Metrorail system’s 86 stops, but only the entrances at Gallery Place or Judiciary Square will stay open late; others will close on time.

Make sure you don’t linger: The last trains will begin leaving Gallery Place at 12:55 a.m., according to Metro.

As with other events, the $29,500 deposit Metro required to extend service came from Verizon Center. (Here’s a rundown of how Washington gets extra Metro service.)

And in case you are wondering: There is no news yet regarding late-night Metro service for Nationals playoff games. That remains unresolved.
