A male member of the audience at Earl's Court attempts to lunge at his hero before being apprehended by security guards...

A MADONNA fan invaded the stage and attempted to lunge at the star during her show at LONDON EARL’S COURT on Monday (July 9).

A male member of the audience, thought to be in his twenties, managed to get on to the stage and started to approach the star, before being apprehended by security guards, according to a report in this morning’s The Sun newspaper (July 11).

A spokesperson for Madonna told NME.COM that the man jumped onto the stage during ‘La Isla Bonita’ and attempted to join the dancers.

The spokesperson claimed that the man was on stage for “about two seconds” before security realised what he was doing and removed him from the stage.

Tomorrow (July 12) is Madonna‘s last performance of a six-night residency at Earl’s Court, and also the last date on the European leg of her ‘Drowned World Tour’.

Later this month the star returns to the US, where she will perform across North America until mid-September.
