Run DMC was first choice as supporting act of Virgin Tour
Our friend Angel Love wanted to share some Madonna tidbids about the virgin tour with our readers.
“I was watching a tv program about Russell Simmons who is the Hip Hop entreprenuer of Def Jam Records, Phat Pharm, etc. He was the manager of his brother who was in Run DMC back in the day. One day, he got a call from Madonna‘s camp and she wanted Run DMC to be the opening act of her tour. He immediately said NO because she couldn’t afford them. Instead, he offered up the Beastie Boys.
And the rest, is history.”
