Excerpt from The Boston Globe, June 3, 1985
By Steve Morse:
...The out-of-place foursome, the Beastie Boys, opened with some phony, rude-Boy rap music, but Madonna quickly stole their thunder with her lively, disco-beating dance treks.
Excerpt from The Boston Herald, June 4, 1985
By Clea Simon:
...The rap/DJ Beastie Boys set the stage for Madonna's streetwise urban image. Unfortunately, like the star their material was simply mediocre, but unlike Madonna they even lacked professional polish.
