Remarks:

The opening show in Tel Aviv, Israel was originally planned for May 29th, followed by a 2nd show on the 31st. Late April, it was announced that the opening show was postponed to the 31st due to 'production delays'. Basically it meant that 1 of the 2 shows was cancelled.

The show in Zagreb, Croatia was cancelled due to 'scheduling conflicts'.

On July 18th, it was announced that Madonna would perform a special showcase at the intimate Olympia venue in Paris. The show took place a week later with some 2,600 fans attending.

The first Dallas show was cancelled due to illness.

The show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was moved from December 1st to December 2nd.

Although the original tour press release announced Australia to be a part of the tour, with dates to be announced for January 2013, this announcement was never made. In July 2012, a spokesperson for Live Nation said the tour would close in South America in December 2012, thereby squashing any hopes of Australian fans that Madonna would finally make it back down under after 20 years. Madonna later apologized and said the Australian leg was cancelled because she "needed to spend time with her kids".

Remarks:

At the show in Olympia, Paris, Madonna performed only part of the show, from Turn Up The Radio to Human Nature, followed by two new performances: Beautiful Killer and Je T'aime Moi Non Plus.

In Chicago, Madonna introduced Love Spent in the setlist. In that show and almost every other show afterwards, the song came right after Like A Virgin, stealing most of its choreography with the corset. Only in Vancouver, Love Spent was performed in its entirety, while cutting Like A Virgin out. In Sao Paulo and all shows that followed, Like A Virgin mysteriously disappeared from the set. In Buenos Aires, it got replaced by a rendition of Don't Cry For Me Argentina.

During the show at Yankee Stadium, Madonna performed a free-style version of Holiday after her speech. She kept the song in the setlist for most of the American shows. Only in San Jose she did Everybody instead, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her debut single. In Mexico City, Medellin and Santiago, she opted for Spanish Lesson instead of Holiday. Other Latin American shows didn't get either one.

In St. Paul, Madonna made another setlist change, by mashing up Celebration with Give It 2 Me. The change was kept in the setlist for the rest of the tour.

During the show at Madison Square Garden, NYC on November 13th, Madonna had a surprise guest act: after the speech she performed a mash-up of Give It 2 Me and the hype of the moment Gangnam Style, with PSY himself. They also performed Music together.

Due to heavy rain, the show in Santiago de Chile was unfortunately cut short. Madonna opened the show with Express Yourself, thereby cutting out the entire Transgression segment. In the Masculine/Feminine Segment, the performances of Like A Virgin and Love Spent were left out as well. The only compensation was the inclusion of Holiday and Spanish Lesson after her speech.

Several other Madonna songs got a reference on the show. Material Girl was sampled in Girl Gone Wild, the Best Friend interlude contained some parts of Heartbeat, Candy Shop contained elements from Erotica, and Cyber-Raga served as outro for I'm A Sinner. Turn Up The Radio started with a mix of several of her classics, including Holiday, Into The Groove, Lucky Star, Like A Virgin, 4 Minutes, Ray Of Light and Music, a tactic previously used for some of her Music performances. Of course there were also the samples of She's Not Me and Lady Gaga's Born This Way in the performance of Express Yourself.
