Above, you can watch a commercial that Tina Turner did for the Dutch insurance company Nationale Nederlanden in 1996. In the commercial, you see footage of Tina looking younger through the years. This leads to the question: does this wonder of eternal youth need a pension plan? Tina answers: ‘You bet I do: my fans are my pension plan!’. After that she says (in Dutch!) the slogan of the company ‘wat er ook gebeurt’ – whatever happens. This commercial was broadcast on television in the Netherlands at the end of 1996, and includes footage from Tina’s concerts in the Amsterdam Arena in the same year.
21 years ago today, Tina Turner performed at the Feijenoord Stadium in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, as part of her Foreign Affair European tour.

A very special post today! 2 years ago on this day, Tina Turner opened a series of concerts (March 21 and 22 and May 2) at the GelreDome in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The shows were the biggest during Tina’s 50th anniversary tour, with approximately 33,000 fans in the stadium each night. Together with the concert in Prague, these were the only concerts with a standing audience. For this reason, the show was recorded for the dvd of the tour, but it was special also for a lot of other reasons.
In this post, you will find photos and newspaper articles from this show. Also, a (long) report about our experiences this weekend, written by Ben!
