While an hour is on the later side, I'd be more surprised to attend a concert and have the act actually start at the scheduled/ticketed time. I generally assume that the band is going to come on at least 15-30 minutes after the scheduled start time. Heck, I've been at shows where the band starts close to the scheduled time (within 10 minutes) and people complained because they were still making their way through security so the venue wasn't full.
Anyway, you can't win. People will always find something to complain about.
If there's a major event afterwards that many thousands of people are waiting for who AREN'T EVEN AT THE CONCERT, then you start and end on time. I was in LSP by the 9/11 memorial, and fireworks viewing was perfect, when they finally got around to it. If I still had little kids with me I would have been furious.
