Tina on Sky TV

Music Month: Tina Turner

BIO: SAT 6 AUG, 9PM

The legs, the lips, the hair and the voice - Tina Turner has been entertaining crowds for more than 50 years.
And now, kick-starting Bio’s Month of Music, you can catch the legend in concert on her recent sell-out stadium tour.

 

The Queen of rock and roll, who President George W. Bush proclaimed had ‘the most famous legs in show business’, Tina Turner has been belting out the hits for more than a century.

She took to the road on a worldwide comeback tour in 2008/9 to celebrate her golden anniversary. This concert, which was released on DVD as Tina Live, was filmed in front of 90,000 adoring fans in Arnhem, the Netherlands, and features many of her greatest hits.

With her trademark powerful voice, mane of wild hair and dance moves that belie the fact the icon is now in her seventies, Tina always puts on a fantastic show, and she works her way through her back catalogue, with her belting out Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits and River Deep, Mountain High. There are a few covers, too, including Get Back, Jumpin’ Jack Flash and Addicted To Love.

All the big numbers which have helped her to sell more than 180 million records worldwide are also here, including Steamy Windows, What’s Love Got To Do With It, James Bond theme Goldeneye and Private Dancer.

Watching Tina give everything she’s got, it’s easy to see why – after all these years – she’s still simply the best.

Tina and Erwin leaving restaurant Nobu in Milan

 Here are some pictures of Tina and Erwin leaving Restaurant Nobu in Milan.

The article says (translated from Croatian) :

Tina Turner tripped and almost fell in front of the restaurant

The singer has almost become a profitable prey for the paparazzi, but the 70 years old grandmother of rock stands sure on her feet.

Since she arrived in Milan she does not cease to attract the attention of the paparazzi who accompanied each step. This was also the case during last night's exit from fashionable singer restaurant Nobu.

Tina stumbled upon exiting, but managed to hold on to her partner which in turn interfered with the vendors care ward. Tina fortunately stayed on her feet, and afterwards had a good laugh over the situation.

Tina at Armani show Prive

Veteran pop star Tina Turner may yet call her troupe of dancers out for another world tour, though for the moment she prefers home-cooked dinners and a stress-free life.

Sitting in the front row at the Giorgio Armani Prive fashion show in Paris yesterday, the 70-year-old looked radiant in a sparkling black top that revealed ample cleavage, her trademark mass of curls piled up high.

“People wanted to see me, so many were holding signs up saying, Thank You,” she said of her 2008 tour, which grossed US$47.7 million (RM162.35 million).

“I haven’t made a decision yet,” she told Reuters when asked if she would stage another tour.

“I didn’t make a plan for a big tour, with big stadiums. I’m not saying I won’t do it, get the girls out and do something, but I haven’t decided.”

Turner has for decades been one of the world’s most successful performers, roaring out hits like “Simply The Best” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It” in stage-stomping, high-octane concerts.

At Armani, as models prepared backstage for an haute couture show of sweeping white gowns and folded skirt suits, Turner said she liked simple clothes for everyday wear but still had a passion for racy outfits.

“My favourites are short skirts that work for heavy dancing,” she said. “I have a short torso, and it looks better with a short skirt.”

And even if another exhausting round of concerts is not imminent, waiting fans may console themselves with the prospect of a new album.

“Recording is something that’s always easier than touring. I wouldn’t mind, but nothing’s come my way right now and that’s fine,” Turner said with a smile.

Unfazed by the scrum of photographers around her, she said while she loved performing in public, she could see the advantages of a more quiet life.

“I have dinner parties, I can go to parties, there’s more freedom when you’re not working,” she said. “I’m just enjoying life.” — Reuters
