26 years ago today, Tina Turner performed together with Mick Jagger at the Philadelphia concert of the Live Aid charity event organized by Bob Geldof to raise money for the famine in Ethiopia. Tina was invited at the last minute by Mick, and they performed two songs together; State of Shock (originally a duet of Mick Jagger with Michael Jackson) and the Rolling Stones classic It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll. There was very little rehearsal time: Tina wrote the lyrics to the song on her arm and Mick ripped off Tina’s skirt by surprise. Below you will find HQ photos from this performance.
The Rolling Stones had a great influence on Tina Turner’s career.
