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.”
With that mission statement and manifesto-Over and Over-Madonna has become the best live performer rock & roll will ever see in its lifetime and existence!
To have been there at the Virgin Tour! Madonnamania was at full speed. My mom still regrets not taking me to this day! It’s cool though mom. You made up for it being you.
