Diva Las Vegas


You know it doesn’t get better than THE Turner’s live… Back in the 60’s & 70’s Ike & Tina Turner were one of the hottest touring band on earth. The mix of Ike’s musical genius and Tina’s breathtaking performances is still inspiring for millions of music lovers worldwide. Their story, as well as their music, is unique and now belongs to the collective memory. Unfortunately, the releases of Ike & Tina video concerts can be counted on the fingers of one hand. So we have to content ourselves with old TV broadcast who would truly deserve a digital treatment…
We can only hope that someday some BluRay/HD release will surface. Until then, here is a new upload for all the Ike & Tina fans out there: Ike & Tina Turner live in Las Vegas back in 1971! Recorded live at the Caesar’s Palace, the show captures the rawness of their performance and songs are intersected with interviews of the notorious duo! Enjoy!

TINA in studio

tina-turner-recording-beyond-iv-spiritual-message-zurich-december-2016
It’s a picture we would like to see more often: TINA in a recording studio! Taken last December in Zurich, Tina looks radiant and appears very concentrated on her message! But don’t get your hopes too high, Miss Tina isn’t recording a new rock album, she is just putting her voice again on a few tracks for the upcoming Beyond album due to be released later this year. Apart from that, it’s been very quiet lately, TINA, The Musical is still in development and the first newsletter should arrive soon! Until then here’s a couple of new photos posted by the musical team on social networks.

‘Break Every Rule’ Interview

tina turner break every rule interview cd lp .png

“People come and say ‘I have to get your autograph because my son is always trying to get me to go back to work and I say ‘no I am too old’ and they say ‘well, Tina Turner did it’! It seems that I have broken all the rules!”

Back in 1986, Tina Turner was heavily promoting the follow up album to the masterpiece Private Dancer, her second solo album, Break Every Rule. To support the release,  Tina recorded a long interview as promo material for the radio. Here is today!

The interview is 55 minutes long and a lot of subjects are reviewed:

Of course, Tina talks about the recording and the songs of her album BER but also about her autobiography I, Tina, her relationship with Ike, David Bowie and much more. A very candid and fun Tina who sometimes reveals more that you would expect! And that’s what we like!

‘I Don’t Sing About My Past’

Back to 1999: Tina Turner is heavily promoting her latest studio album Twenty Four Seven. Wheels started to turn for Tina after her incendiary  performance during VH1’s Divas Live and after the cancelation of a tour with Elton John, she went her own way. Massive promotion across the ocean for what would be Tina’s last album and last stadium tour. A new upload today, thanks to Kristian from Norway, with this video interview of Tina a couple of days before her appearance at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo! Looking fantastic, Tina talks about her latest hit When The Heartache Is Over, music and peace!

Paris Loves TINA

tina-turner-paris-2017

It seems like everywhere in the world there’s hidden gems celebrating TINA. From the never dying posters surviving under a bridge in Germany to window painting of the Queen in a deserted St Louis street, here is a new found one in Paris. Located near the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret, this beautiful piece of street art has been created by artist Ilèa and now appears on the walls of the Rue Planquette. Don’t know if it will be permanent but if you ever are in Paris soon, guess it’s a nice spot to get your picture taken with TINA! Thanks to Gustavo for the tip!

5 Explosives TINA Duets

tina-turner-duets

Let’s Dance – With David Bowie 
“Let’s Dance” is the title-track from English singer David Bowie’s 1983 album of the same name. It was also released as the first single from that album in 1983 and went on to become one of his biggest-selling tracks. Stevie Ray Vaughan played the guitar solo at the end of the song.
The single was one of Bowie’s fastest selling, entering the UK Singles Chart at No. 5 on its first week of release, staying at the top of the charts for three weeks. Soon afterwards, the single topped the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Bowie’s second and last single to reach number-one in the U.S. In Oceania, it narrowly missed topping the Australian charts, peaking at No. 2, but peaked at number-one for 4 consecutive weeks in New Zealand. The single became one of the best selling of the year across North America, Central Europe and Oceania.

Cose Della Vita – With Eros Ramazzotti
Cose Della Vita was originally released in 1993 from Eros Ramazzotti as a single. In 1998, he re-recorded it together with Tina for his greatest hits album „Eros,“ retitled as „Cose Della Vita (Can’t Stop Thinking of You)“ with Eros part in Italian and Tina’s self-written part in English. Eros also recorded a Spanish version with Turner’s English vocals, called „Cosas De La Vida“. A live version was released on Eros album Eros Live the same year, recorded at his Eros & Friends Tour, where Tina was a guest vocalist at some concerts. The music video is available as a bonus on the All The Best home video.
