On May 29, 1990, Toronto police threatened to arrest Madonna on the grounds of lewd and obscene behavior for the “Like A Virgin” masturbation sequence in her Blond Ambition concert.  The show went on unaltered, and no charges were made after the tour manager gave the police an ultimatum: “Cancel the show, and you’ll have to tell 30,000 people why.”

Madonna performed 3 sold-out concerts at the SkyDome, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
