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!

Playboy… After Dark

Ike & Tina Turner 1969 - Playboy After Dark

1969Année Erotique… as sang by French singer Serge Gainsbourg, the song evoke a ludic sexual position as implied in its title “69, Année Erotique” and of course it also testify of the sexual liberations of those years and indeed everywhere in the world it was hot, it was steamy, it was raunchy! Sexual revolution was on its way and with her volcanic performances, 30 years old Tina Turner  was a part of this revolution. Ike took advantage of it and of course everybody remember the incendiary rendition of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” filmed for the Rolling Stones documentary Gimme Shelter. Anyway, knowing it or not as Tina didn’t talk much about feminism through her career she inspired many women and let’s not be scared to say it many men with her incredible charisma. And the image she projected definitely made an impact then and even more later with the release of Private Dancer.Back to December 1969, the Turner were just back from touring the US with the Rolling Stones, bringing their performances to younger white audiences and getting great revues focusing on Tina’s mesmerizing performances. And to end the year 69 on a hot peak, what else than a performance on the king of the Playboy Empire’s tv-show, Hugh Hefner! Ike must have been thrilled by the idea and the deal! So here they are, Ike & Tina Turner with their Revue, 10 years after their debut in St Louis (Missouri) and at the pinnacle of their career performing a four songs showcase! Of course, Tina’s performance is incredible as usual and I know it is not that rare for fans being on Youtube for a while but I don’t think the full segment was and I am quite sure, not in that quality! So I hope everybody enjoys it!

And of course, we wish you a very Happy and Healthy 2016 and like in 1969, let’s wish for Love, Not War.

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)

Tina’s ‘Summer Of Soul’ on Arte

Franco-German channel Arte is once again putting Tina Turner at honor, two years after the “Summer of Girls” series. Earlier this month, they broadcast “Simply The Best” documentary and mentioned Ike & Tina several time during their “History of Soul” series.

To conclude this season of “Summer of Soul”, Arte will broadcast Tina Turner’s biopic “What’s Love Got To Do With It” on August 18, 2013.  A well chosen moment with the media attention that Tina just got from her marriage with Erwin Bach and her upcoming appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter.

Plus watch  Ike & Tina Turner performing Proud Mary on “Soul Train”, on the 22nd of April 1972 in HD!

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!

February 19, 1985: Tina is tired of Mary

Tina Turner - Private Dancer tour - 1985

Tina Turner is ever the professional, but even she has her bad days, when everything seems to go wrong. Opening night of her 1985 Private Dancer tour in Helsinki, Finland was one of these days. When Tina enters the stage, she is surrounded by smoke, making it impossible for her to sing. She simply shouts out “TOO MUCH SMOKE!”, and gives her stage technician a piece of her mind, before continuing the song as if nothing has happened. Later during the show, she confesses to the audience that she is tired of performing Proud Mary – her self-acclaimed favorite song. Continue reading for more details on this show!
