In my opinion it was. it was my 1st concert too. I saw her in Atlanta and she was really talkative and playful with the audience. You have to go with an open mind and realize this isn't the 80s or the Re-Invention Tour. I find it funny people bash her for including a lot of songs from her latest album but not a peep when other people do it. It's called the MDNA Tour not Singing My Past Songs Tour. ANYWAY I got good seats and could actually see her on the stage. The Marionette, Folk? and Vogue sections were the best part of the concert to me.
