Was the 'MDNA tour' ever topped?

in terms of production value and innovation? It's been 8 years since and I genuinely think it's still the biggest and most innovative Pop show design of recently memory. I mean, the level of complexity is just fall6

I tried to think of one, but I legitimately couldn't. California Dreams, Born This Way Ball and MDNA were really THE tours of the 2010s, and we havent seen anything as elaborate or theatrical as those since burn1

Nope oprah11 Esp. in terms of moving the show through distinctly designed "scenes" with their own visual and sonical atmosphere, that is just super impressive. It's like a movie that legitimately (and not just metaphorically) takes you through different emotions and landscapes. I haven't seen any show pull that off so well gaga7

I can think of multiple tours better in production. Perhaps you should take off those stan goggles.

The point is to state them, not think them.

I mean, sure, that castle looked epic, but what purpose did it serve beside being a gateway for her to change costumes? brit7

...That's about it, lol. It's not dynamic at fucking all, it just opens and closes, and it looks like a cheap Hollywood studios prop + LED lights. 

'perform in it" omg you make it sound so exciting when in reality it looks like this :

The point is that Madonna('s team) used established technology but used it in an innovative and spectacular way to serve an artistic purpose lana5 Gaga may have had a unique setpiece, but that does not a show make ari7 If you compare the two tours based on solitary performances alone, it's instantly obvious that the MDNA performances had 1000x more work and thought put into them, while Gaga basically said "I have a castle, now let's walk around it and try to make a show". The technology didn't carry the show, it was just the only way she could pretend she had one chi1
