Madonna Autograph Letter Signed From 1981, With Fantastic Content — ”…I finally found a place on 8th and 30th across the street from Madison Square Garden (where someday I’ll play)…”

Madonna autograph letter signed, with envelope dated 17 April 1981, featuring an unknown, but prescient, Madonna fantasizing about one day playing at Madison Square Garden. The 7-time Grammy winning megastar who’s sold more than 250 million records writes to her brother 2 years prior to releasing her debut album. A 22 year-old at the time, an eager and ambitious Madonna grills Christopher for staying in Detroit and speaks of the possibilities in New York. She writes: ”…You see I have a manager right now. Her name is Camille Barbone, she’s very good and extremely helpful and at this time is supporting me while I try to get my music act together…I have moved 3 times since the last time we spoke (not unusual). I finally found a place on 8th and 30th across the street from Madison Square Garden (where someday I’ll play) 8 blocks from rehearsal studio and it’s the favorite street for assorted bums and winos to hangout on but their [sic] harmless they just add more life to my already chaotic lifestyle. I’ve been auditioning musicians for a couple of weeks, finally got a shit kicking band together and my guitar player went on a European tour with another band and so I’m auditioning again. It’s really frustrating cause I’m so anxious to start playing out and it would only be a matter of months before we went into the studio to record…I’ve been writing lots of good material lately (songs) and everyone tells me how wonderful they are but it takes so long to get record deals and negotiate contracts and find the right musicians that I feel like I could lose my marbles every other day. I’m a glutton for punishment! Do you like rap music? I’ve written some great rap tunes, they’re great to dance to…” Madonna then ends the letter by mentioning Easter and writing: ”…Think of me when you’re stuffing your face w/ Jelly Beans. Write soon or call 212-869-3885. So long kiddo, Madonna”. After releasing her second album, ”Like a Virgin” in 1984, she began her debut concert tour in Seattle on 10 April 1985. 2 months later, Madonna would live up to her word and finish her tour with 2 shows at Madison Square Garden, on 10 and 11 June 1985. 3pp. letter (on 3 separate sheets) is written in blue pen on white lined paper. Comes with original envelope addressed to Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone. Envelope includes postal stamp, dated 17 April 1981, and return address under the name ”Aqua baby boogie bubba”. Pages measure 8.5” x 10”. Two folds on each page, minor ink smudge on each page, otherwise near fine condition. Incredible piece of music history from one of the best-selling artists of all-time.
