Wasn't Drowned World Tour stage inspired by Ricky Martin's Livin' la Vida Loca Tour (1999-2000)?

From a quick look at youtube videos for his tour, I can see 3 large video screens on stage but they all show the live show, not videos made for the concert like Mer Girl or Paradise (Not For Me).

I think Depeche Mode were one of the earlier ones to use projections.
Here's a performance from their 1993 Devotional Tour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yooweL_UOao

Madonna definitely laid the grounds for mainstream commercial artists' use tho.

Didn't M use projections during Papa Don't Preach at Who's That Girl Tour though?

Thank you for posting this. When I heard the Depeche Mode thing, I immediately thought, ummmmm, no, Madonna definitely used projections in the 80's.

She and Jamie King made a template for pop concerts that followed after 2004/ reinvention. It was on that tour that the backdrops became real part of ger concert

Every popstar after that uses similar tecnology

I know! Technology was a lot different back then obviously but she was definitely a pioneer!
