Tina Turner – UK tour book – 1984

Tina Turner - 1984 UK tour book - 1

In the beginning of 1984, Tina Turner went out on a month-long UK tour. An important period for Tina, her first single in years, a cover of Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ had just reached number 7 in UK Charts. This was completely unexpected, Tina had been struggling for 7 years as a solo artist, failing to have a hit single or album. This 1984 UK tour was the last time she would perform in small clubs and theaters. When she returned to the United Kingdom in 1985, she had a hit album ‘Private Dancer’ and performed in sold out arenas. This tour book shows rare photos from her first steps towards success as a solo artist. Click below to see the photos and a PDF file of the tourbook thanks to Juerschen.

    Great work guys! Is there any chance we can get scans of first edition of tour book from last tour? 🙂

    Gah, these are amazing! I was only old enough to go to her 50th Anniversary Tour in 2009 (I’m 18 now) so I have that programme but no others 😦

    I wonder what the setlist was for this Uk tour….I wonder if it was the same as the Den Bosch concert or different 🙂

    • I think it must have been the same or at least similar. From the few recordings from 1983 and early 1984 I know, the setlist is usually similar, although sometimes she changed it a bit with songs like Rock N Roll Widow, Steel Claw or Pain.

  4. Setlist from Oxford Apollo Gig:-

    Cat People
    Acid Queen
    Let’s Pretend We’re Married
    Hot Legs
    Get Back
    I’ll Be There Where The Heart Beats
    Nutbush City Limits
    Givin’ It Up For Your Love
    Night Life
    River Deep Mountain High
    Let’s Stay Together
    Help
    Proud Mary
    Hollywood Nights
    Out Of Time
    Her version of Bob Seger’s Hollywood Nights was amazing

    Will never forget this night! And the rude Scottish lad who shouted out asking if Ms. Turner had taken her “pill” and she replied after shushing the band….”Sir, what is you want…ME or THE PILL!” Priceless!

    She did Givin It Up For Your Love that night and it truly was astounding! Wish that song was on CD!

    Thanks Dame Turner!
