1987: Madonna in Leeds UK Concert Report




The very morning after Madonna's first ever full UK concert and Sunday lunchtime youth magazine show "Network 7" broadcast this amazing indepth feature about the gig on Britain's Channel 4!

Their showbiz presenter Magenta Divine took pop star Paul King up to Leeds the day before (August 15th 1987), to witness the European premiere of Madonna's "Who's That Girl" tour at the city's enormous Roundhay Park.

Network 7's cameras filmed early portions of the concert for the report and Magenta interviewed the Daily Record's music critic as well as photographer Dave Hogan, who was famously "run over" by Madonna's limousine just one year earlier at Heathrow Airport when the star arrived in London to film Shanghai Surprise.
