Today in Madonna History: June 1, 1985

On June 1 1985, Warner Bros. and Sire Records took out a centerfold ad in Billboard magazine to celebrate the resounding success of Madonna’s first concert trek, The Virgin Tour.

Featuring the cover image from her current hit single Angel as its backdrop, the spread cheekily alluded to Madonna’s “virgin” moniker with its caption:

“You were wonderful! We’re proud of you. Congratulations on your first tour.
– Warner Bros. and Sire Records.”

  1. Virgin was a triumph for all concerned and Gambler showed Madonna’s inner Rock goddess! Again, the writing “I’m a gambler/I’ll take you by surprise/You can’t stop me now!” rings true and has the ring of truth!
