Tina Turner – Berlin Sightseeing

Waldbühne and Olympiastadion

During the Wildest Dreams Tour in 1996, Tina performed 4 times in a row at the Waldbühne while she played for one night in 2000 at the Olympic Stadium during the 24/7 Tour. You can have a tour of the stadium or enjoy a fantastic view of both venues and the city from the Bell Tower (Glockenturm) which is situated between the two locations at the so-called Maifeld.

 

O2 World

During the 50th Anniversary Tour in 2008/2009, Tina performed two nights at the O2 World arena. You can combine your visit with an interesting walk along the former Berlin Wall, today transformed into a long outdoor gallery called East Side Gallery.

Lost Places

Tina Turner is a survivor – and she survived everything – even some venues in Berlin! A rather morbid tour of lost places takes you to the following destinations:

  • Radrennbahn Weißensee in Berlin Weißensee, concert site for the Foreign Affair Tour in 1990. The place is now transformed into a huge sports center. Make sure to pay a visit to the lake in this district.
  • Metropol Theater, today, the venue is called Goya and is an elegant and big night club/disco which serves as a location for the biggest gay party in Berlin.
  • Eissporthalle an der Jafféstraße close to the Deutschlandhalle. Until May 2001, it served as an ice-skating and performance venue but is today demolished. You can combine your visit with a tour of the Funkturm which allows you to have a fantastic overview of the western part of the city.

Estrel Convention Center

The Estrel hotel is also a big Las-Vegas-style convention center where Tina performed When The Heartache Is Over during the Wetten Dass TV show where she was a guest during each promo tour for a new album. From there, you can start exploring the Neukölln district.

Friedrichstadtpalast

Tina performed at the Friedrichstadtpalast for a TV show (see clip) which is situated at the Friedrichstraße, a fancy shopping street, and crosses the street Unter den Linden which leads you either to Alexanderplatz and the TV tower or the Brandenburg Gate.

Axel Springer Verlag

The publishing house Axel Springer Verlag sometimes hosts TV shows and galas in the Ullstein-Halle. Tina was twice a guest at their events.
