Legendary Madonna Fans at Don't Bungle the Jungle - May 24, 1989

Sandra Bernhard and Madonna - I Got You Babe - 1989

Madonna attended the Don't Bungle the Jungle Benefit with Sandra Bernhard, Debi Mazar, Keith Haring, on May 24, 1989. It was here that Madonna and Sandra performed their rendition of Sonny and Cher's, I Got You Babe - wearing the shorts made for them by Keith xo.

Madonna Scrapbook reader Ray and his best friend Steven were there - FRONT ROW!!!! Ray was kind enough to scan and share these wonderful pictures with us.

And remember Twitling Facebooker's
- these were the days before iPhones and little thing, it, thing contraptions. Ray and Steven were BRAVE to get these pics!!! REAL MADONNA FANS!

These are the days of NO CAMERAS ALLOWED.

Legendary Fans

  4. Imagine being front row for THAT?!

    Just 2 days ago watched the full performance of this, someone posted online. Bloody amazing.

    Back then if something happened in the evening in America, it would be 2 days later that it would end up in the UK papers...

    As everyone did, I loved Fridays when I was a kid cos it was the end of the school week. I especially loved Fridays which became MADONNA FRIDAYS and I just checked cos I have this vivid memory of Don't Bungle The Jungle being a Madonna Friday for me - and it WAS! Concert happened Wed 24th May so we got the pics all over every UK paper FRIDAY 26th May. Fucking awesome. Loved the Sandra Bernhard years. Brilliant!

  10. As a long haired 13 year old Brit gay boy I adored the images and scandal that reverberated around the world following this cool show. Only now am I learning that Haring made those awesome jeans, wow. Following my lady's lead, I cut off a pair of my own that summer and drew flowers, CND symbols and love inspired messages all over them. I had kudos wherever I went :)
