  1. Buenísimo!!!! con esa gira del año 85 fue que me hice definitivamente fanática de Tina Turner . de las versiones que más me gusta de Help es la de esa gira.


  2. 27 years… and I was thinking about 25 years! I was 4 years old at the time and I have idolised Tina ever since. I still often watch this concert.It’s a shame the full version is not shown, we miss out on great live songs like steel claw. Luckily, proud mary,nutbush and river deep are on other live concerts.


    1. Yes, the full show in Birmingham must have been recorded. I say it is time for Tina and her team to start opening the vaults and re-release this concert with bonus tracks on dvd and blu-ray!


  3. Thank you GUYS for that gift!!! I experienced Tina in Cologne-Sporthalle on 1.Mai 1985 (I have still the ticket to remember).
    This recording from Paris is “chaleureux”. Mercie pou cette cadeaux.
