We are back! TINA77 was a fantastic gathering again (a big thanks again to all of you who showed up and made it a success) that we definitely can’t stop now! So one more time, TINA Fans from all around the world will gather in Amsterdam to celebrate Tina Turner’s 78th Birthday on November 25, 2017. Again, this is an event organized by fans for fans and Miss Turner won’t attend the event.
We came up with a great theme for this year: TINA & Friends! We had such a great show last year with Nurlaila Karim that we thought we couldn’t beat it. So this year, YOU will be the show: Realize your Wildest Dreams by coming to the party dressed as one of your favorite celebrity/character! It can be an artist related to TINA or anyone you would fancy to be for a night! Of course it is not mandatory, if you are the shy type just come as you are and you’ll still be welcome with Open Arms! But for the one who took their chance, we’ll vote for the ‘Best Costume’ of the evening and the lucky winner will get a special prize!
More details to be unveiled soon on TinaTurnerParty.com, until then here is our annual trailer for #TINA78

By Dashon T Jones – “All I Can Say Is WoW”. This is truly how I can initially describe my holiday in The Netherlands this year. I arrived in Amsterdam on my Birthday and although the rest of the gang didnt start to arrive until two days later, being in Europe was now a dream realized! Excitement filled me as I walked from Amsterdam Centraal across the canal then to The Victoria Hotel where I then checked in. Once in the room I took a quick shower I hurriedly rushed downstairs and back outside! Until now I had never witnessed such originality in traditional structure, I was thrilled! For two days I alone enjoyed the people, food and architectural fascination of the city. Early Wednesday morning, before daybreak, I got a call from the hotel clerk asking if I was expecting a guest, It was BEN! My buddy and webmaster of TinaTurnerBlog. Continue reading
Amsterdam (The Netherlands) – Last Saturday, our annual Tina Turner Fan Party took place at the Winston Kingdom in Amsterdam and it is fair to say that everyone left with stars in their eyes. We started celebrating Miss Tina’s birthday between fans at Anja’s place in Germany in 2010 with only a hand full of people and to think that seven years later we are here celebrating in a big club of the Dutch capital with an amazing singer, live band and fans from all over the world, it is truly unbelievable! After a year of intense and nerve wracking work, Anja, Marco, Sjef & I would like to thank you all for being a part of it and for making it a success again!
Below, a video of the amazingly talented Nurlaila Karim who performed an hour set of Tina Turner songs for us. Climax was reached during this intense version of I’ve Been Loving You Too Long. She simply put us all on our feet! A big thank you from all the fans to Nur & Mur for their involvement in our project! We love you!
Moreover, have a look at the wonderful photos made by the even more wonderful Dutch photographer Stephanie Pfundt. She captured the essence of the evening like no one and now we’ll have great memories to cherish forever! Thanks a lot Steph for your hard work and friendship!

Tina Turner Live in Amsterdam – September 1996 – Mark Allan/Alpha
By Ben – I am pretty sure that 20 years after her three legendaries concerts at (at the time brand new) Amsterdam Arena, Tina Turner’s voice still resonates inside the stadium. Not a single time have i passed in front of this giant monument without thinking of these concerts. I guess I can talk in Sjef’s name to say it’s probably the same for him. 1996. Wildest Dreams Tour. 3 nights, 160,000 cheering fans from across the world attending the rendez- vous given by the 57 years old Lioness. Massive promotion, massive production, massive crowd, and you can always count on the Dutch to pays Tina her dues.
I’ve probably watched and listened, dissected and studied this concert more than it is allowed until a few weeks ago, fellow Tina fan Jamie told us about an unseen tv version. He found out about it while “Missing You” was blasting on British cable tv. Of course, I couldn’t help investigating and finding out more about that mysterious version. After watching again the Original TV broadcast, followed by a LaserDisc version and finally the DVD, I could certainly noticed a few differences between them but couldn’t imagine there might be even more. But it did happen! After weeks of research I finally got my hand on the new version Jamie mentioned. And what a surprise:
New camera angles, a clearer definition to satisfy your die hard fan appetite but mostly a new audio mix giving Tina’s voice more presence, more power and strength than it ever did on the previous supports. I strongly advice you, if you can, to watch and listen to the following videos with headphones! So for a starter (and after a paramount work of time on the video quality) and for all your delight here’s the “new” version of Missing You and as bonus since it’s turning 20 years old this year, the gold and honey trap, Goldeneye! Enjoy!
This post will be updated often in the future with new HD uploads from Tina Turner live in Amsterdam 1996. We’ll keep you in touch on our Facebook, Twitter and Youtube channels!
