With the release of TINA this week on HBO and SKY, it seems that it reminded some people that they had TINA treasures to share.
The first one came with love from Russia. It’s been a long-time dream for fans to finally get another concert from the Wildest Dreams Tour (or any other to be honest) and it finally happened earlier this month.
The anticipation was high and although the concert wasn’t fully uploaded, it is a total gem. The shots are very professional, the colors, the editing, everything is perfect and most of all, TINA looks splendid and is on fire, giving her best to awake the dead Russian audience.
The second treasure came from the AP.
Last evening, the agency put online 25 minutes of rushes from TINA’s concert rehearsal in Zurich back in 2000. Thanks to the efforts of superfan Logan, it seems that they decided to share this incredible footage with the world.
A great treat for all of us, this video is incredible, it’s a very interesting look at Tina’s work behind the scenes and clearly, you realize how easy she is to work with and what a joy it is for others to be around her.
Also uploaded, the first 22 minutes of Tina’s concert at the immense Letzingrund of Zurich on June 29, 2000.
Podcast lovers will also have their kick this week with two new podcasts about TINA:
The first one is a podcast from Factual America published yesterday featuring an interview of Simon and Jonathan Chinn, the producers of the new TINA documentary.
The two co-founders of Lightbox have worked on such acclaimed documentaries as Searching for Sugarman (2012), Man on Wire (2008), LA 92 (2017), and Whitney (2018).
Simon and Jonathan talk about how they discovered new ways of telling Tina’s story, the revelations that they uncovered about Tina while making the film and what it takes to make a great documentary.
And to finish today’s news, a new show from the ‘For The Girls’ podcast, hosted by Nick and Jason!
Jason and Nick are two queer people with a healthy obsession with Bette Midler, Whitney Houston, Elaine Stritch, Liza Minnelli, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Tina Turner and each other.
And today’s episode is about our legendary Queen and their guest is an old Tina fan from France… me.
Thank you for inviting me guys, I had a great time talking about TINA with you! Enjoy everybody!
