Tina Turner at the Sheraton Hotel in Buenos Aires – January 2nd 1988 (AP)

Everybody remembers Tina Turner’s iconic concert at Rio’s Maracana back in 1988, breaking a world record and captured for the memories but there’s other countries in South America set on fire by Tina while touring her Break Every Rule album worldwide.

If ‘Rio was hot’ well Buenos Aires probably reached the same level of rawness and passion in front of the massive crowd gathered at the Estadio River Plate Stadium. After spending  the year 1987 heavily touring Europe and the USA,  Tina was exploring news frontiers and conquering new (and longtime) fans in Argentina, Chile and Brazil. The success and recognition Tina received from the audience there was massive and memorable. Blog stats can attest that Tina is still very very popular in South America as she is the rest of the world. Starting with this concert in Buenos Aires, the year 1988 would be as extraordinary and exhausting as the previous one. Leaving one continent for the other, Tina concluded her Break Every Rule with a tour of Australia and a series of concerts in Japan.
Tina Turner live in Buenos Aires - 1988Fans have complained over the years about the lack of footage from this very special era but let’s never lose hope of getting new footage and you can be sure you’ll find it on Tina Turner Blog! Until then, two uploads from Tina’s concert in Buenos Aires! I am aware most of the hardcore fans saw it before but let’s be honest in quite poor quality. Still those uploads of ‘Help’ and ‘Proud Mary’ aren’t the quality you would wish for, but I guess this is the best you could get so far! Enjoy!

She won’t get fooled again

After hours of investigation, it seems that the news about TINA appearing in the new musical was only an April Fools. If those alternatives facts seemed appealing better check twice before sharing rumors and non reliable informations. Anyway, glad to see most people got the joke, sorry to the ones who were offended by it, no harm intended.
And because we can’t stand fake news and to make it up to you, here is a new upload and probably the most epic and brutal performance of  ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain’ from TINA live in Nijmegen, The Netherlands during her Break Every Rule Tour 30 years ago this year. Enjoy!

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!

Celebrating TINA77

tina77-tina-turner-fan-birthday-party-amsterdam-2016
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!

Please, Please, Please

Some great news for all of us fans that just popped up this week!

First, Ike & Tina coming on Blu-Ray. A pair of classic Sixties concert films, 1964’s T.A.M.I. Show and its 1966 follow-up The Big T.N.T. Show, will come to Blu-ray together for the first time this December as a two-disc collection’s edition. For the Blu-ray release, both films received a high-definition transfer, as evidenced by the first sample of the upcoming release: Ike & Tina Turner’s explosive cover of James Brown’s “Please, Please, Please” from The Big T.N.T. Show. Pre-Order here!

Second, Goldenlane records is set to release a 3 cd Box Set of Ike & Tina Turner recordings under the Pompeii Label. Between 1960 and 1970, the groundbreaking, erratic, and turbulent couple/duo recorded music for a whopping ten plus record labels resulting in nearly 70 singles and some 20 albums. According to a press release, during these recordings Ike & Tina “toured regularly both here and abroad (reportedly averaging some 300 shows a year), made frequent television appearances, and managed to raise a family.”

Anyhow, from 1968-1969, the duo cut a plethora of songs with Pompeii Records, and now the catalog is available on a 3-CD set dubbed ‘The Complete Pompeii Recordings 1968-1969.’

The 3-CD box set will be available starting September 23 from Goldenlane Records, a division of Cleopatra Records, Inc. Pre-Order here! 

We will review the BluRay & the Boxset as soon as we’ll get them so stay tune! And please, please, please, we want more releases like those!

I’ll Never Need More Than This

Tina Turner - River Deep Mountain High - 50Th anniversary 2016

This year, one of the Tina Turner’s most important (if not the most important) recording turns 50. I’ll never forget the first time I heard the song River Deep Mountain High.It is the song that made me fall in love with Tina and it is definitely my song. For me, it always symbolized the path of a lifetime, the road is never flat, you might have to climb High Mountains and swim across Deep Rivers to achieve your goals.

Discovering the song as a child it totally blew me away. Living in a small village in the east of France, I never thought music could sound like this. I was familiar with Classical music but not that much with Rock & Roll and Soul music. And this song was the perfect combination of them all. Defying Spector’s Wall of Sound, Tina’s voice is like a perfect instrument and every sound coming out of her mouth penetrates our body and soul.

We all know the story behind River Deep Mountain High, Ike being put aside from the project by Spector, the reluctance of radio station to play a record judged too white for black stations and too black for white stations and most importantly, the fact that it launched Ike & Tina Turner’s career in Europe.

Everything has been said and written about River Deep so instead of long boring article, and to celebrate the anniversary of the album in the right way, a special upload  with a live version of River Deep Mountain High live at the Yankee Stadium in 1969! Enjoy!
