About Tina Turner
For four decades, Tina Turner has mesmerized audiences with her high-energy performances, first with Ike Turner’s band, The Kings of Rhythm and then as a solo artist. In 1984, nearly ten years after Tina embarked on her solo career, she released Private Dancer. That record led Tina to one of the most impressive comebacks in pop music history.
Since the mid 80s, she has amassed an extraordinary catalogue of collaborations and achievements on record, on the big screen and as an author. They include several gold and platinum selling studio albums, a raft of Grammy Awards, a duet with Mick Jagger at the greatest live event in human history, Live Aid, a role with Mel Gibson in Mad Max and a best-selling autobiography.
