When The Heartache Is Over was the first single of Tina Turner’s 1999 album Twenty Four Seven. It was produced by Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling, the same team that was responsible for Cher’s 1998 number 1 single Believe. In this post, we take a closer look at Tina’s single, from its origins to its live performances.
Closing night of a world tour is a great opportunity to have some fun for Tina and the band. The atmosphere is a bit more loose, and emotional, and there is room for a few surprises. It shows in this audience recording of Tina introducing her band during the final date of her 2000 Twenty Four Seven world tour in Anaheim, California, exactly 12 years ago today. Tina and the band burst into an impromptu version of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love – a song that she already covered on her 1975 album Acid Queen. She shows she is capable of a great Robert Plant imitation. The only downside – it is too short: she leaves the audience longing to hear the whole song!
Listen below to the full band introduction from the concert, with Whole Lotta Love starting at 1 m 58 s. Also check out this post that we did a year ago, with a behind the scenes look of closing night in 2000.
