Paris Loves TINA

tina-turner-paris-2017

It seems like everywhere in the world there’s hidden gems celebrating TINA. From the never dying posters surviving under a bridge in Germany to window painting of the Queen in a deserted St Louis street, here is a new found one in Paris. Located near the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret, this beautiful piece of street art has been created by artist Ilèa and now appears on the walls of the Rue Planquette. Don’t know if it will be permanent but if you ever are in Paris soon, guess it’s a nice spot to get your picture taken with TINA! Thanks to Gustavo for the tip!

One Night in Paris

Tina Turner - Stade De France - Paris 2000

It was fifteen years ago today! Fifteen years! And yet it still feels like yesterday.

Back in 2000, Tina Turner was back on the road with the massive stadium Twenty Four Seven World Tour. And of course, France is always on the map when it comes to Tina tours.

Take a 60 years old Rock Legend, add a 2 hours non-stop show and 80.0000 people cheering and you’ll end up with probably the best concert you’ll ever seen!

And since we like celebrations on the Tina Turner Blog, let’s celebrate this amazing show with photos and audio from that evening!

Enjoy and let us know what you think! Oh and don’t miss the very special sing along version of “The Best”…
