Madonna's Bay City home still attracts visitors
US TV: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony

Madonna joins the US Hall of Fame later tonight

Madonna will be inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later.
John Mellencamp, The Ventures, Leonard Cohen and The Dave Clark Five, will also be honoured at the 23rd annual induction ceremony in New York.
The nominees are chosen by a committee and are whittled down to a final list of five by more than 600 music experts.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame president Joel Peresman said: 'From poetry to pop, these five acts demonstrate the rich diversity of rock and roll.'
He added: 'The 2008 inductees are trailblazers - all unique and influential in their genres.'
Acts only become eligible to be considered for the honour 25 years after their first recording.
Madonna will be inducted by pop star Justin Timberlake and Iggy & The Stooges will perform on her behalf.
The star signed her first US record deal in 1982, and scored her first hit with Holiday in the UK two years later.
The 49-year-old has constantly altered her image and embraced different musical styles.
Last year's inductees were REM, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Van Halen, the Ronettes and Patti Smith.
Once included, the artists are featured in the Museum's Hall of Fame exhibit.
This includes a computerised jukebox containing every song of each inductee and a film played on three big screens recounting their careers and music.
