March 22, 2009: TINA live in Arnhem

Tina Turner Live 2009

8 years ago, Tina Turner was in the middle of a series of concerts (March 21 and 22 and May 2) at the GelreDome in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The shows were the biggest during Tina’s 50th Anniversary Tour, with approximately 33,000 fans in the stadium each night. Together with the concert in Prague, these were the only concerts with a standing audience. For this reason, the show was recorded for the dvd of the tour, but it was special also for a lot of other reasons, you read all about it here

To celebrate, two new video uploads from TINA’s last tour, not from Arnhem but from Helsinki with a powerful rendition of ‘We Don’t Need Another Hero’ and one of Tina’s all time favorite song ‘Addicted To Love’ ! Enjoy!

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!

Mighty High in Mexico

From the vault and because it’s 40 years old this year, a new upload of a fantastic Ike & Tina Turner Mexican tv special from 1975. Not the best quality ever (more Ike & Tina footage in better quality will be upload in the futur on the blog)  but of course worse watching if only for the incredible performance and vocals by Tina and the funky music directed by musical genius Ike.

So now, have a seat (if you can stay seated for more than 2 min), grab some pop corn and enjoy 45 minutes of great soul music.

Tracklist: 

Intro (00:01)
Lady Marmalade (0:40)
I Got The Music In Me (4:08)
Ike’s Theme & Intro To Tina (8:26)
Sweet Soul Music (9:37)
Oh My My (12:16)
Honky Tonk Woman (15:16)
I Smell Trouble (18:00)
Only Women Bleed (24:24)
Get Back (28:12)
With A Little Help From My Friends (30:54)
Mighty High (33:56)
Proud Mary (38:46)

Queen of the Arena

Tina Turner Live in Amsterdam - September 1996 - Mark Allan/Alpha

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!
