MADONNA -  1983 CAMDEN PALACE , LONDON 10" x 8" ORIGINAL PHOTOS

On 13th October 1983 Madonna performed in the UK for the very first time at London's 'Camden Palace'. A selection of live 10"x8" photos from this pre-fame performance were issued as promo / press images for select media only 

We've attached a scan of the centre pages of a 1987 magazine which used some of these photos (The magazine is for sale seperately), This was a 30 minute set with backing dancers to backing tracks with a costume change, also behind Madonna on stage in one of the photos you can see bundles of the rare UK only sunglasses vinyl picture sleeve used as posters.

These are original black & white photos from 1983 In excellent condition & due to being over 30 years old they have lightly faded in some parts. (1stopmadonnashop does'nt appear on the original photos).

Below is an extract from the Guardian UK Newspaper originally printed on 15th October 1983 which reports on Madonna's Performance at the Camden Palace.

This demonstration was by a white girl in her early twenties, known simply as Madonna, a dancer who moved to New York from the Mid-West as an ambitious teenager and is currently the most important new figure in the American dance scene.

She succeeded partly because she makes great records and partly because she has turned the boring idea of a track date into an exotic event.

Dressed in holocaust chic – black top, black skirt and leggings, lots of bare midriff, and hair in ringlets – she sang well, with a husky, black-sounding voice, and danced even better. She hurtled around the stage, mostly swivelling her hips like a belly-dancer while performing her songs like Lucky Star and the stirring Holiday.

Given a full set and a live band behind her, Madonna would seem to have the makings of a major star, so it's no wonder she is now being managed by the man who guided Michael Jackson's recent career.
