February 19, 2009: Tina fighting Philip on stage in Mannheim, Germany


A very short, but funny, video of Tina Turner ‘punching’ her Ninja Philip Sahagun on stage during the band introductions of her concert in Mannheim, Germany on February 19, 2009. The four Ninja’s were performing their martial art skills during the costume changes on Tina’s last tour in 2008 and 2009. During the band introductions, Tina gave them the stage to show some tricks to the audience. This day, Tina herself decided she would join them with her acting skills, the result: a knock-out in round one! As Tina would say: just having fun! Big thank you to Lars who recorded this video.

Tina Turner – live in Antwerp photo gallery – April 30, 2009

It’s almost 2 years ago today that Tina Turner played the final of five shows at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium. These shows, at the 15,000 seat arena, were among the fastest selling of the tour. All five shows were sold out within an hour after they went on sale. Despite the fast sales, the audiences were quiet and remained seated during most of the show. However, Tina was able to win them over by the end of the night. Below is a collection of more than 140 photos taken by Sjef during the show on April 30, 2009. Enjoy

April 11, 2009: Tina performs in Dublin, Ireland

2 years ago today, Tina Turner performed the final 2 shows in Dublin, Ireland. She already played 2 shows at the same venue in March. All four shows were sold out in record time. Surely, one of the best gigs of the tour. Tina and the band were in a great mood. Originally planned to be the final shows of the tour, Tina, band and crew celebrated a tour closing party at the Guinness brewery. The audience was singing along to all of the songs, and the venue, an amphitheater, made sure everybody was close to the stage, making these the most intimate concerts of the tour. All in all, a great experience! Below you’ll find a selection of almost 200 photos, taken by Sjef during the concerts on April 11 and 12.
