It was the most anticipated night of the year for TINA fans and ladies and gentlemen, Tina Turner didn’t disappoint!
Appearing at the Premiere of TINA, The Musical on Broadway and making her return to the big apple for the first time since her last show at the Madison Square Garden in 2008, the Queen of Rock stunned everybody by wearing a dazzling golden Armani dress, looking healthy and fantastic!
Despite the rain, fans and media gathered for hours in front of the Lunt-Fontanne theater to have the chance to see the Legend. And once she got there, the whole place just went wild, chanting TINA’s name heartfully as you can see on this video above shot by superfan Eric Henry.
Among the celebrities present were of course her long time friend Oprah as well as Gayle King, screen legend Whoopi Goldberg, Spike Lee, Anna Wintour, Christine Barenski, Martha Stewart and many more.
The show received a tremendous welcome from the audience, and cheered even lauder when ‘Tina THE Turner’ appeared on stage at the end of the show.
Having experienced this moment in Hamburg, I am pretty sure fans who were present had a blast, it is a unique experience to see Tina’s life being portrayed on stage and then seeing the real Tina at the end.
All the reviews for the show haven’t been out yet but make sure to check the blog for future updates!
