For those who saw MDNAT live, how was the atmosphere of the audience during the middle sections? I just can't imagine the GP sitting through such an awkward setlist at 12am! I do remember two of my casual friends on Facebook bitching about how the show and I swiftly deleted them. :rotfl:

In the triangle, it was bliss. But in the 100 level, some people went to get hot dogs. Their loss. They need to stick to The Immaculate Collection.

Anyone that gets up for hotdogs at Madonna needs to go. I brought my best friend of 20 years to see his first ever Madonna show (Rebel Heart Tour) and we sat next to amazing people. There was a super fan with binoculars, two lesbians from Missouri, and an adorable 12 year old gayby with his mom. This kid lost his shit and was crying when she came on stage. It was the cutest, gayest thing I've ever seen in my life. I was so proud of him and his mom for taking him to see Gaydonna.

Actually during the show itself, people around me seemed to really enjoy it! 

It wasn't until we got on the train to head bank into Philly that the bitching began. And man was it harsh.

I was front row on the very tip of the triangle, but my friends who were in the back standing had a blast, I don't generally generalize by the opinion of two or three or 4 or 5 friends, but I've never heard anyone in all this years complain about set list or starting times in Mexico at all not even the media...

+1 to this. I had friends literally begging to join me when she was on the road for Confessions, Sticky, and MDNA. But all anyone heard about in 2012 was the late start times and shit setlist. I bought two tickets for Rebel Heart and no one asked if they could come. I ended up asking an old friend who only said yes the day before the show. Think about that -- I struggled to give away a Madonna ticket. Remembering the absolute craze that surrounded tours just a decade ago, this was just fucking crazy to me.

We'll see whether it was permanent or just setback. Lots of casual fans and even non-fans were aware of the glowing reviews and hits-packed setlist for RHT. Even my sister wrote me about it after she saw a video of M singing "True Blue."

I love MDNA and saw it live in Birmingham. I totally agree that the late starts and setlist would put off the general public. I think if we are going to blame anything on affecting her touring career it was WE. She spent far too much time on the flop, promoted that instead of the album and this caused a 4 years gap between album cycles. Her saving grace was the Super Bowl and without that I doubt the tour would have sold as well as it did. This is why Rebel Heart's figures for attendance are much fewer. The GP won't put up with crappy set lists and starting at 10:30. If she pulls that crap on one more tour she's done. She really did piss a lot of people with that especially with public transport or working the next day. Shes needing a good shake and maybe the lower gross for RH will give her the shakeup she needs

I should have made a poll. Poor sticky, fans seem to not love that one much, ironic since it is her highest grossing tour

I'm not sure if I should rank/rate according to live performance vs video output (where available).  So I'll just list the most memorable/watched for me.

1:  Girlie Show

2:  Who's That Girl

3:  Blond Ambition

4:  The Virgin Tour

5:  Rebel Heart Tour

6:  Confessions Tour

7:  Drowned World Tour

8:  MDNA Tour

9:  S & S Tour

10:  Re-Invention Tour

(The only reason S&S/Re-Invention rank so low is because I didn't have fun at the live show....not that they weren't amazing).  But that was my fault/problem.  M absolutely gave her all in each and every tour.

1. Confessions Tour (amazing from start to finish)

2. Blond Ambition Tour (iconic)

3. Drowned World Tour (A+ concept and visuals, song selection a lottle questionable but still mindblowing overall)

4. Virgin Tour (a classic and pure Madonna)

5. Re-Invention Tour (great song selection and mixes, only wish there was a little more from AL and some of the original more obscure song choices)

6. Girlie Show (only for the concept)

7. Sticky and Sweet Tour (great tour versions, song selection okay, the rest...meh)

8. MDNA Tour (visuals great, terrible song selection)

9. Who's That Girl Tour (a little basic overall)

10. Rebel Heart Tour (setlist all over the damn place, too much 80s/not enough 90s/00s, ugly costumes, horrible song versions)

Re-invention Tour has more 80s stuff than Rebel Heart Tour though.

First, RIT was her first tour using older hits since 1993. She hasn't done many oldies from 1994-2001.

RIT:

Holiday (83)

Burning Up (83)

Material Girl (85)

Crazy for You (85)

Into the Groove (85)

Papa Don't Preach (86)

Like a Prayer (89)

Express Yourself (89)

Vogue (90)

Deeper and Deeper (90)

Bedtime Story (94)

Lament (96)

Frozen (98)

Music (00)

Don't Tell Me (00)

 

RHT:

Everybody (83) - part of a medley

Lucky Star (83) - part of a medley

Holiday (83)

Burning Up (83)

Like a Virgin (85)

Material Girl (85)

Dress You Up (85) - part of a medley

Into the Groove (85) - part of a medley

Love Don't Live Here Anymore (85) - part of a medley

True Blue (86)

La Isla Bonita (86)

Who's That Girl (87)

Vogue (90) - as part of a medley

Deeper and Deeper (93)

Music (00)

Candy Shop (08) - as part of a medley

I mean... :lmao: the ratio is clearly off. This tour was basically The Immaculate Collection meets Rebel Heart. I would feel scammed as a die-hard fan.

RIT is much more immaculate collection than RHT.  RHT had several 80s songs, which is not a bad thing but songs like Burning Up, True Blue, Dress you up and Who's That Girl weren't even on the immaculate so your post is confusing. Only immaculate tracks that were on RHT (not including songs that were sampled or part of Dress you up nor songs that were not a stable of her set list) we only have Holiday, Like A Virgin, Material Girl and La Isla Bonita. RIT is full of immaculate in their FULL versions: Holiday, Material Girl, Crazy for you, Into the groove, Papa Dont Preach, Like A Prayer, Express yourself and Vogue.

I like RIT dont get me wrong but your post is not based on facts.

All of which makes RIT the better of the two. RHT was weirdly first/second album centric.

What bothers me most about RHT is her song choice from the RH album. She really picked the worst songs from the album, plus a few good ones (iconic, devil pray, Heartbreakcity and rebel heart)

Well Joan of Arc should have been there of course, and Ghosttown (which I was lucky enough to see) apart from the dull SEX interlude I think the RH choices were okay. I guess she didn't want too many ballads.

"SEX" and "Messiah" were both snoozer interludes. Two of her worst, ever. Confessions Tour-level bad. ("Oh, look at my dancers telling their stories. It's so interesting. Let's put it on the live CD instead of 'Live to Tell'" :zombie: )

I'd love to know what was behind the lack of budget on RHT. Those interludes were the laziest of her entire career. To take the RIT comparison further, the Bedtime Story interlude leaves them for dust.

That is the problem, she is scared of the slower and mid-tempo songs, those were the best ones on RH. I don't get why almost all of the songs have to be dance numbers.

I don't think she's scared of them, she's just aware that many of the GP tend to zone out a bit or, as she said in IGTTYAS, leave to buy a hotdog when ballads are on. This goes for most pop acts. She'll also know that there's plenty of time in the future for those types of slower, more ballad heavy shows as she gets older.
