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 HeartbeatCandy Shop contained elements from Erotica, and Cyber-Raga served as outro for I'm A SinnerTurn Up The Radio started with a mix of several of her classics, including HolidayInto The GrooveLucky StarLike A Virgin4 MinutesRay 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.
