1987: ADIS Benefit Concert in New York City




Apologies for the quality of this clip - it's from a 2nd or 3rd generation VHS copy which has also been primitively converted from NTSC to PAL!

But it's a cool report from local New York Channel 7 "Eyewitness" news - a rare piece about Madonna's special AIDS benefit concert at New York's Madison Square Garden on July 13th 1987.

This rare indoor arena gig (on what was mostly a stadium tour in both North America & Europe), was staged entirely as a fundraiser for AmFAR. Fans attending the concert were given a unique Who's That Girl Tour comic book, explaining the facts about safe sex and AIDS.
