Madonna, US Airways Center, 10/16/12

Madonna @ US Airways Center| 10/16/12
With a long history of being a proven provocateur, it makes sense that Madonna has managed to piss a lot of people off since kicking off her MDNA tour.

There was that nip slip in Istanbul, and a reference to our current president as a "black Muslim," so one had to wonder what kind of shenanigans Madge would get up to as the tour made its stop at the US Airways Center last night.

Turns out, there wasn't much in the way of controversy, just one of the most over-the-top performances of the year.
