Tina Turner in London, TINA The Musical Workshop – December 2016[/caption]
We talked about it for months (even decades among TINA Titans) and today it is finally official! TINA The Musical, will hit London’s West End in 2018. A special website has been launched for the occasion: TINA The Musical. Check it out & subscribe to the mailing list!
Moreover, here is a message from TINA herself:
We have been working on the musical for over a year now and today I am delighted to be able to share our news as we begin the next chapter of our journey. It has been wonderful to collaborate with Katori and Phyllida and to have my story nurtured by such an amazing creative team is thrilling. London has always had a very special place in my heart and it’s wonderful to be back.
Exciting news for all TINA fans, Joop Van Den Ende, the producer of the TINA Musical, confirmed that workshops for the Musical will start on December 16 of this year and that the Musical will premiere in London in 2018! We can’t wait to know more about this and of course to experience it! See you all there!
Dutch musical producer and business man Joop van den Ende has announced he will collaborate with Tina Turner on a musical production of her life. He just revealed the first details about the show this evening on Dutch television. For several years, Joop has been negotiating with Tina, visiting her several times in Zurich. Last weekend, the contract was finally signed, when Tina and her husband Erwin Bach visited Joop and his wife at their home in The Netherlands.
Queen has “We Will Rock You”, Abba has “Mama Mia”, Gloria Estefan just launched her “Get on Your Feet” show…. Musical blockbusters! Tina Turner’s life has already been portrayed a few times on stage but never a big dimension project. However it seems like things are going to change… After years of mentioning it in several interviews, a real project with an official involvement from Tina herself will probably see the light of the day in the near future thanks to Dutch theatrical producer Joop Van Den Ende.
If it does happen that means that Tina will also get involved in promoting the musical in some sort of way so that’s something to look forward to!
Thanks to DJ for the info!
The Beyond Team send us an email asking to share their FB status (and this pic above) as well as their greetings to Tina! There it is:
May the long time sun shine upon you
All love surround you and the pure light within you
Guide your way on, guide your way on
Happy Birthday and enjoy!
In deepest gratitude for all what you have given us.

What a year: a wedding, a Vogue cover, an interview with Oprah Winfrey and several other appearances. Not a bad “Tina Turner” year for us fans… Maybe too much to remember: therefore recap of all the Tina moments you shouldn’t have missed in 2013.
