Tina Turner - Groningen - July 18, 2000 - ticket

It has already been fifteen years since Tina Turner’s Twenty Four Seven ‘Millennium’ tour was rumbling through Europe. During a particularly grey and wet summer, the rock and roll circus put up its tents in all the major cities: Paris, London, Berlin and… Groningen?! Yes, that’s right, Groningen – if you don’t know it: Google it!

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”…

Putting a world tour together and promoting it can be tiring. Add that to the fact that promotion isn’t your cup of tea and that you don’t really need it to sell out stadiums well you end up doing “On The Road Interviews”. Those are always fun and a real treat to watch for fans. In 2000, the biggest UK & German Tv channels, the BBC & ZDF send cameras to follow Tina Turner and her team on stage and backstage during her Twenty Four Seven Tour.

All in all 80 min of behind the scenes footages featuring a peek at rehearsals, interviews with Tina, band members, dancers and live footage. Screenshots included.

Whole Lotta Love for Anaheim

Closing night of a world tour is a great opportunity to have some fun for Tina and the band. The atmosphere is a bit more loose, and emotional, and there is room for a few surprises. It shows in this audience recording of Tina introducing her band during the final date of her 2000 Twenty Four Seven world tour in Anaheim, California, exactly 12 years ago today. Tina and the band burst into an impromptu version of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love – a song that she already covered on her 1975 album Acid Queen. She shows she is capable of a great Robert Plant imitation. The only downside – it is too short: she leaves the audience longing to hear the whole song!

Listen below to the full band introduction from the concert, with Whole Lotta Love starting at 1 m 58 s. Also check out this post that we did a year ago, with a behind the scenes look of closing night in 2000.

Baby, She’s A Star!

In 2000, Tina Turner was part of an advertisement campaign for Target, a chain of stores in the United States. Target was the sponsor of the second American leg of her 2000 Twenty Four Seven world tour. Besides shooting a television commercial, a 7-track album was also released, exclusively available in Target shops, called All That Glitters. The album featured two live tracks, 4 greatest hits songs, as well as a new recording: a cover of Prince’s Baby, I’m A Star. The song was already performed by Tina’s backing vocalists on the first two legs of the Twenty Four Seven tour, and for the promotional campaign, Tina recorded a solo version, produced by long-time musical collaborator and keyboard player Ollie Marland. The song was also featured in the commercial. Continue reading for an overview of the Target campaign: the song Baby, I’m A Star, as well as two alternative cuts that were used on television, scans of the All That Glitters album, a video of the television commercial, and scans of the interview that Tina did with Target magazine, that was available for free in the stores.
