Of all the artists I’ve run concerts of these past few years, I regret not having run a concert by Tina Turner, until now. My bad.
Tina Turner was, without a doubt, the most energetic, charismatic, non-stop performer in Rock. Having had one career, early on as half the duo of Ike & Tina Turner, with a string of hits in the early 1960s, and later her much publicized divorce from Ike Turner and reinvention as a solo artist in the late 70s and early 1980s – and her huge worldwide success as the result, Tina Turner has been one of the truly legendary names in Rock history.
As a reminder of what a dynamic performer Tina Turner was, here is that concert, live from Park West in Chicago, on August 17, 1984.
Crank it up and get moving!
