"Not only could [Lovato] do pull off half a dozen costume changes, dance, sing her ass off, play the piano, and run around the arena like she was on a treasure hunt, Lovato could also deliver inspirational talks that were meaningful and moving," she wrote.[31] Gatini Tinsley of News-Herald wrote that Lovato "proved to be all fans need" and called the "Father" performance as the "emotional high point of the show".[37] Toronto Star's Nick Krewen rated the concert 3 stars out of 4, observing that "Lovato mesmerized the audience by every word and action".[38] Reviewing the show at Wells Fargo Center, Matt Smith of praised Lovato's vocal performance and compared them to Ariana Grande as "the 2010s-era pop generation's most versatile and powerful vocalists."[39] Celia Almeida of Miami New Times highlighted the "Father" performance and compared the B-stage set to Madonna's Blond Ambition World Tour (1990).[40]

Hertogs praised Lovato's vocal performance but criticized the sexual elements of the show, calling it "outright" and "reprehensible".[47] David Pollock of The Scotsman described the show in Glasgow as "a production focused upon a [person] with a particular brand of star quality which is rather being as much like her audience as possible."[48] Reviewing the show in Stockholm, Natasha Azarmi of Aftonbladet gave a mixed review and called the show was "between mediocre and magic".[49]

The title card for the show is not shown until immediately before the closing credits.

VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O Lord Meaning not his providential mercies, but his special mercies and favours; his mercies of old, which were upon his heart and thoughts from everlasting; the sure mercies of David, or the blessings of the everlasting covenant; the spiritual blessings, wherewith the saints are blessed in Christ; the grace that was given to them in him, before the world was: these are desired by the psalmist to be remembered, shown, communicated, and applied unto him, and, as it were, that they might come into his heart and soul; which is done when the love of God is shed abroad there, when full flows of it come in, and all grace is made to abound, and every want is supplied; 041b061a72
