That Tour is so underrated by fans!!
It is, but I find those that moan about it are mainly the fans that had been waiting since TGS for a tour.
The thing with DWT is that Madonna was making a statement - in a world of manufactured pop Madonna was selling millions and holding her own. Even then, they judged her success against those younger than her and applauded he for being able to sell so well despite
being in her 40s. The DWT setlist showed everyone Madonna didn't need to rely on her hits to tour - her new stuff was just as good.
However, DWT was simply Madonna getting back to business. In reality it's a tour that covers the eras since her last tour - if only she had sang You'll See at every show and actually performed DCFMA, the show would have made more sense. Plus, making her audience wait for the hits gave her the advantage of being able to charge more for RIT and songs she hadn't performed in at least 10 years.
Of course as times gone by the DWT is a mini greatest hits tour all of its own - over half the setlist is made up of singles and for anyone that worships those two albums is incredible.
She'd never get away with it now though. If she hadn't toured MDNA and did a combined MDNA and RH tour there'd be murders
