The Virgin Tour was the debut concert tour by American singer-songwriter Madonna. The tour supported her first two studio albums, Madonna (1983) and Like a Virgin (1984). Although initially planned for an international audience, the tour was restricted to the United States and Canada. Warner Bros. Records decided to send Madonna on tour after Like a Virgin became a success. After an official announcement on March 15, 1985, Madonna and her team began production plans. She wanted the tour to be a reflection of her own self and collaborated with designer Maripol for the costumes.
Beastie Boys were signed as the opening act, while record producer Patrick Leonard was the music director. The stage was triangular and included ramps around it, with lighting arrangements hanging about 30 feet above. Four giant screens lined three sides of the stage's outer perimeter. The set list consisted of songs from Madonna and Like a Virgin. Madonna was backed by two dancers as she moved energetically across the stage. The show ended with her in a wedding dress, performing "Like a Virgin" and "Material Girl".
The tour received a mixed reception from critics, but was a commercial success. As soon as it was announced, tickets were sold everywhere. Macy's New York department store was flooded with buyers, who bought tour merchandise ranging from shirts and sunglasses to crucifix earrings and fingerless gloves. On its end, the tour was reported to have grossed over $5 million ($12.03 million in 2020 dollars), with Billboard Boxscore reporting a gross of $3.3 million ($7.94 million in 2020 dollars).
The tour was recorded and released on VHS and LaserDisc, as Madonna Live: The Virgin Tour, which received a gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). With the commencement of the Virgin Tour, a wide-ranging audience—especially young women—thronged to attend, attired in Madonna-inspired clothing. This frenzy regarding Madonna gave rise to a new term called Madonna wannabe—a word that was ultimately officially recognized by the Webster's Dictionary in May 1991.

"Dress You Up" is a song by American singer Madonna from her second studio album Like a Virgin (1984). It was released as the fifth and final single from Like a Virgin on July 31, 1985, by Sire Records. The song was the last track to be added to the album as it was submitted late by songwriters Andrea LaRusso and Peggy Stanziale. Madonna pushed for the song's inclusion on Like a Virgin as she particularly liked its lyrics. Musically, "Dress You Up" is a drum beat driven dance song featuring instrumentation from guitars and vocals from a choir, and a guitar solo played by Nile Rodgers, who also produced the song. The lyrics are an extended metaphor for fashion and lust, comparing dressing up with passion.
Critics reacted positively to the dance-pop nature of the song. "Dress You Up" became Madonna's sixth consecutive top-five single in the United States, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100. It also peaked within the top-ten in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. A live performance from Madonna's first tour was used as the promotional music video. The song was performed on four of Madonna's concert tours, most recently on the Rebel Heart Tour (2015–16), and has been covered by a number of artists.
