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 then-current single, Angel, as a backdrop, the spread cheekily alluded to Madonna’s “virgin” moniker with the caption:

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

  1. That was a beautiful homecoming!-in front of a hometown crowd in Detroit. Madonna completed the Virgin Tour-Gambler was a nightly highlight! The lyric “You can’t stop me now!” became prophetic for Madonna!-She still can’t be stopped!
