We would like to wish happy holidays to all of Tina’s fans around the world. And of course Tina would like to wish us all a Merry Christmas too! We really had to blow the dust of this tape – we think it is from Italian television back in 1984, no idea who the guys are with Tina. Enjoy the holidays and see you back soon here at The Tina Turner Blog!

We’re very happy to announce that we will again organize a Tina Turner fan party to celebrate Tina’s birthday this year! The party will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (for the third year in a row) at bar The Queen’s Head. Because the birthday is on a Monday this year (November 26), we decided to move the date slightly, to better accommodate all the international travelers. The event will now be held on Saturday, November 24 – starting at 8 PM. We will have a special performer, Tina music all night long, a few surprises, and of course many Tina fans travelling to Amsterdam from all over the world. So please make sure you join us! Check out the page for the party here for all the details. See you in Amsterdam!
We’re back from our holidays – and ready to start updating the Tina Turner Blog again with fresh energy and ideas! We have many interesting posts planned for you in the coming weeks – we hope you will enjoy them! Continue reading for some short news updates.
Even rock stars get tired and need a break some time – and so do we! So, we are taking the month of July off for a much needed holiday and to create some new posts for The Tina Turner Blog. But don’t worry: we’ll be back in the beginning of August with new updates, and hopefully we’ll have some more Tina news soon. And if there happens to be some exciting Tina news in the next few weeks – we’ll try to update our website as quickly as possible. Until that time – enjoy this photo of Erwin & Tina enjoying a walk in the Forbidden City in Beijing last May.
A Facebook/Twitter hoax that Tina Turner had passed away, spread on the internet for the last few days; and judging by the increase of our visitors the situation needs a little bit of explanation. The whole thing started in France last Monday (June 4) when a website (necropedia.org, not to name it) published a Tina Turner obituary stating she passed away June 3rd during the night. Subsequently, some stupid people relayed this fake information on social networks.
Other people then stated that Tina’s sister, Alline had died and not Tina. Also false; unfortunately Miss Ruby “Alline” Selico Bullock passed away in September 2010.
So all of this said, Tina Turner is alive and well and will be for a long time! We hope to have cleared this rumor up for everybody. Long live the Queen!

Yes, Nana Mouskouri rocks… but did you really think we would make HER the star of our blog? No way! Better check that date again: indeed it was April 1, which means: April fools! For us, there’s only ONE queen, which is Miss Tina Turner! We enjoyed our joke: most of you couldn’t be fooled, but we did receive some de-subscriptions and frustated reactions. Don’t worry: we have absolutely no plans to transform our blog into The Nana Mouskouri Blog, and we will continue to bring you the latest updates and rare recordings from the archives of the one and only Tina Turner in the future! Hope to see you again real soon on our blog, and thanks for all your comments!
