Wedding bells for Tina Turner! (Updated July 19, 2013)

Tina Turner & Erwin Bach to get married

Tina Turner and Erwin Bach arrive for the premiere of Giacomo Puccini’s “Tosca” in Bregenz – 2008

Tina Turner (73) is set to marry long-time partner Erwin Bach (57) this year, according to a report in Swiss tabloid newspaper Blick today. The ceremony will take place directly at the lake of Zürich (in their garden?). Food is provided by Chefs Rico Zandonella and Horst Petermann of Tina’s favorite restaurant ‘Rico’s Kunststuben’. And the dress-code: white.

Tina Turner and Erwin Bach have been a couple for almost 27 years; they met in Germany while Tina was working there in 1986. Erwin Bach was at that time a record executive of Tina’s label EMI. In previous interviews, Tina has always said that she would never marry again, even though Erwin apparently proposed to her. Now, at the age of 73, it seems she regrets that previous decision, and is ready to tie the knot. If the reports are indeed true; we wish them lots of love and happiness in the years to come. And oh darling, we think it’s gonna work out fine!

A rep for the 73-year-old merely offered “no comment”  but after a few days of spreading on the web, it seems like the information is true!

    Another great bit of news this year regarding Tina. If it’s true it wouldn’t surprise me in the least. If not, oh well. The older she gets the more colors we see. Re-invention : I couldn’t care less. Happiness for the woman we have loved for so long : That means the world to me.

    By the way, if this is true it is going to be massive news. A lot of her legend has been built upon the horrible marriage she had with Ike. Everyone wants her to be happy, and whether the non-fans know she has been with Erwin for 27 years or not, the general public will go crazy with this announcement. They will think, At Last!!!

    • Well if she wanted it to be massive news, i think Tina would have mentioned it in the Vogue interview. Now the information comes out 1 week after the magazine release… I guess she knew it would be the only thing the people would remember from the interview and that the Ike & Tina Turner history would be evoke again. For the moment the news is only spreading on German websites. But it’s been only a couple of hours, let’s see how it develops!
      Thanks for commenting Drew!

    Swiss citizenship, marriage, it is clear she’s preparing that everything will be ready in the event that…. she goes Beyond.
    Every sensible person at that age would do the same in order to keep her fortune with her loved once instead of the US revenue department 🙂
    This is more likely a tax move

    • What’s love got to do with it huh? There’s probably a lot of good reasons why Tina Turner & Erwin Bach are getting married but after 27 years together it’s probably time to legalize their relationship! It doesn’t surprise me nor shock me, i think it’s about time. And i can’t wait to see how Tina & Erwin will look like 😉
      Thanks for your comment Lasse!

      Lasse, personally I think Tina is living her life and the joy of being truly in love with a man, who seems to love her back. She seems to be about love and living, not preparation for death, and stashing money for before the after life –dag!
      She probably could care less about the US Revenue Department!! Age is simply a number, and people who are preoccupied with aging, age quicker, because they are not comfortable with a natural process. Tina, is enlightened and lives a life of love and tranquility. She is in peace and reflects on Buddha, not death.

  5. OMG I wonder if Craig will give her away, if its true.

  6. Kate .Knight

    Well if this is true I am happy for her ,she is happy so all the best to the lady who is Simply the best ,congratulations to them both x

  7. We are so happy for you !

    Je partage cette joie. Elle s’est battue dans sa vie pour casser “Break every rule” pour arriver à ce stade, je pense qu’elle le mérite. On sait qu’elle a un moral d’acier et elle se laisse pas abattre si facilement. Je ne pense pas qu’il y est une question d’impôt ou de nationalité, ce sont deux choses différentes. Et puis avant tout, c’est Tina qu’on aime pas son portefeuille.

  21. Dear Tina, My cousin and I met you at your What’s love Tour in 1990 Indianapolis, IN. It was an awesome event for both of us. I was very pregnant and my cousin very shy. Just wanted you to know that you were the inspiration to both of us for getting out of our abusive marriages. Thank you!

    Love Lisa and Beth

    Congrats to my idol and inspiration. I loved you when I saw you in KC several years ago and for many years before that. Just can’t understand why you do not to be an American citizen anymore… that is my only disappointment.

    • AmiMann

      It is common for expats, when reaching around 20 years abroad, to review whether they will return to their home country. They may then decide to acquire their host country’s citizenship. Even the US Ambassador to Switzerland, where Ms Turner lives, said in a televised interview on July 4, 2012, that he considered it “practical” to give up US citizenship if the person does not plan to return to the US to live. I support Ms Turner on her decision and wish her all the best for the future as a married woman!

  33. Congrats to Simply The Best female rocker ever going seen you twice here in the Uk Brilliant News very happy for you Do another tour we all love you

    TIna Turner Bach… It sounds so musical! But she will keep her name, of course, or just Tina. Tina and Erwin have been a stable couple for years now, I think it makes sense to them, if it happens. My best wishes!

  39. Have you given up waiting “‘Til The Right Man Comes Along,” Tina? Erwin is a Good Man, but he’s a Frigate to your Battleship, and you both know that.

    I know how hard it is to wait. But give the situation a little more time — important spiritual matters are involved — and your life will be very different by next year, I guarantee you.

    And if it is not, you can always marry Erwin then.

    I finally got (re) married to the same man I had been living with for thirty years… ten married, twenty divorced. I did it for legal reasons: so he could visit me in the hospital if need be, make medical decisions for me if I was incapacitated, and for tax and inheritance reasons. No reason for him to have to wait or lose everything if I died and we weren’t married. I’m sure it was the same thinking for these two.

    Tina has had an incredible life and I am so glad she shared it all in her wonderful biography and subsequent interviews. Honesty counts! As does talent and hard work, and she is full of all of them. Plus she has introduced us to chanting which is really wonderful. Thank you Tina and all that you do!

    Espero que sigan juntos para siempre. Ella merece una vida afectiva feliz!!!!!!!!

    Your awesomeness, Ms. Tina,
    I wanted to be on the Oprah Show for one reason, to see Tina Turner up close. I never made it to Oprah (those tickets were golden); however, I made it to Indianapolis to see you live…my favorite concert EVER!
    Thank you for the joy and happiness you’ve given for so long. You shall remain in our hearts always. “Simply the best,” is surpassed only by simply the greatest!
