We have just reached the magic number of 50.000 followers on Youtube. In addition to our 230K Facebook friends, we are glad to reach that many TINA fans around the globe. So a big thank you to all of you who have been supporting us for all those years and if you don’t follow us yet on our social networks, please do!
And of course, to celebrate the occasion, and as an early birthday gift for all TINA fans, a new upload with this video montage of Tina’s 50th Anniversary Tour with videos made by fans. Created by Ben. Enjoy!
A recently broadcasted HD version of Tina Turner’s legendary 1982 Nice & Rough concert recorded at the Hammersmith in London. Unfortunately not the full show but one can only hope it will be fully released (or broadcasted) in HD sooner or later!

Merry Christmas everybody! We hope you’re all having a wonderful time for the end of this year celebrations!
And since Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a gift here is a new upload from the blog’s vault: Tina performing the song Paradise Is Here as closing song of her show in Stockholm during her Break Every Rule Tour back in 1987.

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.

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!

After our recent trip to Sweden and a wonderful party with our good friend and fellow Tina fan Martina, we thought we would share some footages from the vault with a few tv appearances from Sweden. Starting with an interview from 1985’s Private Dancer Tour, then a live performance from Break Every Rule Tour and finally a video of Simply The Best as the opening number of the Foreign Affair Tour!
On October 21st 2000, Tina Turner packed the BJCC Arena in Birmingham, Alabama during the second North American leg of her Twenty Four Seven World Tour. A look back at that evening with a set of 70 photos by Dave Schuit as well as live recordings of the concert.

In the Summer of 1993, Tina Turner packed New York’s Radio City Music Hall for 5 sold-out nights from July the 12 to the 17th. We celebrate this occasion today with a video bootleg of a very wild Tina performing the legendary Proud Mary as well as an interview that she gave to Australian Tv show’s “Hey Hey It’s Saturday” live from New York; She talks about the release of the movie What’s Love Got To Do With It and her current What’s Love Live tour. The quality for both video is average but well worth watching for the fans!
The GelreDome, a football stadium in the Dutch city of Arnhem, has become a famous place for Tina Turner fans. In 2009, Tina performed three concerts and also recorded the official DVD ‘Tina Live’ of the tour there. Now, her music is coming back to the GelreDome. December 21, 2013, a special Tina Turner tribute concert will take place under the name of ‘The Tina Turner Experience’. Unfortunately, fans can not experience the real Tina Turner. However, her music will be performed by Emi Wokoma, who also took on Tina’s role in the music ‘Soul Sister’. Joining Emi are several guest stars, to be announced later.
The show will be a full concert, based on Tina’s heydays in the 1980’s. Tickets are on sale at this website and range from 59 to 89 euro. This is surely the biggest Tina Turner tribute show that ever took place, and we are curious to see whether they can come near the success of Tina’s 2009 performances at the same venue. For more information on the show, visit the official website.
