The Virgin Tour rare merchandise mailorder by Winterland Productions added

New in our Virgin Tour page is this very rare merchandise mailorder by Winterland Productions from 1985. This mailorder offers people various items such as Virgin Tour shirts, programmes and posters. The backside features a biography and handwritten letters by Madonna stating that they won’t be having a ‘conventional fan club’ and that she is currently on her Virgin Tour and that it’s so rewarding seeing her fans. She writes about Desperately Seeking Susan and working on a new album that probably won’t be out until 1986. Finally the mailorder includes the Virgin Tour itinerary.

Hit Parade: The Veronica Electronica Edition

In 1998, at a crossroads, Madonna rebooted her career by fusing electronics with matters of the heart—and turned digital music into viable pop.

 Listen to Episode 11 of Hit Parade:

In 1998, Madonna was at a career crossroads. After dominating the 1980s with hits like “Like a Virgin” and “Open Your Heart,” she spent the first half of the ’90s wavering between roles as a provocateur (EroticaSex) and adult-contemporary balladeer (“I’ll Remember,” “Take a Bow”). That’s when she took a sharp left turn, working with producers and DJs in the burgeoning electronica scene. If it even was a scene: The very term electronica was a music-business confection, and by 1997, it was more hype than hit. But the result of Madonna’s experiment—her acclaimed ’98 album Ray of Light—was not only one of her biggest smashes. It also helped turn electronic music into viable pop.

B-Boy dancer Lilou talks about Bollywood dance, touring with Madonna

Lilou, who was a part of Madonna’s MDNA world tour, had once famously said, “Madonna should not stop dancing.”

The tour itself, which featured Lilou and his Pockemon Crew, was educational for Lilou. “I learnt to be more professional because when you work with your friends or people you know, it’s very different from working in a big US production, with the timelines and so on. I also learnt that these productions are maybe not for me,” Lilou tells us.

He surprised us when he revealed his favourite dance tracks to which he grooves the best. “The SOS band, which is a disco group from the ’80s, was what my brother was listening to when I was young. The other one is Tupac Shakur, because for me he is the best rapper ever, and I love listening to his tracks,” said Lilou.

MATERIAL GIRL Brings the Music of Madonna to the UK

MATERIAL GIRL Brings the Music of Madonna to the UKAs the Queen of Pop turns 60 this year, ‘Material Girl’ soars into theatres across the UK to tell the phenomenal story of one of the world’s most prolific female singers.

With incredible vocals, amazing dancers, video footage and narration, ‘Material Girl’ celebrates the greatest songs from the Queen of Pop, Madonna. Audiences are taken on a journey through the scandals, the controversy and the music of one of the world’s most iconic figures.

Told through the eyes of the sensational leading lady, Jodie Jane Jackson, audiences will hear stories and little-known facts about Madonna as the show follows her career and music through her 35 years at the top.

On playing the Queen of Pop, Jodie says it’s: “a dream come true to be able to take the role to a huge theatre tour. What a fantastic person to play, one of the most influential and successful stars of all time and someone that’s been a huge inspiration to me and my life.”

‘Material Girl’ features all of the hits such as ‘Like A Virgin’, ‘Papa Don’t Preach’, ‘Vogue’, ‘Crazy for You’, ‘Into the Groove’, ‘Like a Prayer’, ‘Express Yourself’ and many more. For fans of Madonna, there is no better tribute.

Our show will hopefully show all aspects of her life and the songs will speak for themselves.”

In 2018, experience the woman, her life, her music.
