Tina Turner Readies New Musical

Published: Wednesday 8th Feb 2017 by David

Tina Turner‘s life story is to be brought to the stage.

Details below…

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.

The show will touch down in London in 2018 and will explore her journey to superstardom and the arduous road she was forced to take to reach where she is today.

Tali Pelman, Group Creative Director of Stage Entertainment shared:”

It’s been an honour for us all to collaborate so closely with Tina Turner on this project.  Tina is a music legend and her iconic songs are matched only by the power and inspiration of her remarkable and moving story.  We are delighted to be working with Katori Hall, whose writing has a heart and humour that beautifully captures Tina’s life story, and to have the extraordinary director Phyllida Lloyd at the helm of such a talented creative team.  It’s been exciting today to see the project move into its next phase.

    This has the potential to be really good. What’s Love Got to Do It was a great film and Tina’s story could work on the stage.

  3. WRTW? February 8, 2017

    Didn’t realize Tina was so beautiful until I day the interview posted here. Damn

      Tina is unbelievable. Truly one original artist and piece of human body that woman. probably the best female performer ever. You need to watch performances from the 70s and 80s. Unbelievable.

    I’m one of the Biggest Beyoncé’s fan. But i feel so Lucky and blessed to experienced Tina TURNER. This lady is NOT human ! Tina a GOD.

    And thx to my babe Beyoncé for introducting Tina’s music 🐝🐝
    Can’t wait to hear her new music

    • SMH February 8, 2017

      Beyonce introduced Tina’s music? LMFAO.

      • YISI February 8, 2017

        They might’ve meant introducing them individually to Tina. There are plenty of new school artist that introduce the younger generation to the old school pioneers. So bitter and upset over nothing.Seek help,to obsess over someone you supposedly hate isn’t normal or sane behavior.

        The Delusional Mind of a BeyHIVe. Ha!

    • oopsUPsideDaHead February 9, 2017

      The only Tina music Beyonce introduced was Tina Knowles : The Matthew Sessions

  5. Queen February 8, 2017

    Force of nature. I love Tina Turner!

    Watch “Beyoncé & Tina Turner – Proud Mary [Live At Grammys 2008]” on YouTube

    • Fancy BISH February 8, 2017

      Yaaas, they slayed DOWN lol

    • gina February 8, 2017

      beyonce was clearly out of her league.

    • JOHNVIDAL February 8, 2017

      So this is about Tina Turner but with the countless incredibly real and outstanding performances you have by Tina Turner when she was at least a little bit younger somehow you still managed to make it about Beyonce and post a performance with Tina so out of her prime? That´s the best you can do when talking about Tina? Ugh…

    • oopsUPsideDaHead February 9, 2017

      She stepped on Tina’s feet with her big A S S feet
      Tina was in so much pain

  6. Fancy BISH February 8, 2017

    Tina is ICONIC…her timeless beauty, class, and that VOICE…that voice is clearly on another level! Get your coins Miss Turner!

  7. Tori February 8, 2017

    Can I please see the receipt that it costed Beyonce and Parkwood $7 Million to air a commercial please. No shade, I REALLY want to know if that’s true!

    • SMH February 8, 2017

      Its not.

      • Tori February 8, 2017

        I might post this Everytime I see those two Beyonce fans post. You want to LIE to uphold Beyonce but your lie is not even in order, no b**** post receipts. EVERYTIME I SEE THEM TILL THEY ADMIT IT WAS A LIE!

  8. JanStan February 8, 2017

    Omg I had always thought that what’s love got to do with it would be an amazing musical. So excited for this!!!

  9. The Wig Snatcher February 8, 2017

    Tina is the reason for Janet and Beyoncé. Therefore, I thank her immensely.

    • Jasmine February 8, 2017

      Maybe Bey but not Janet. Michael Jacson helped Janet and they have similar styles and vocals. Paula Abdul helped Janet too.

  10. JOHNVIDAL February 8, 2017

    Tina was my first idol when I was 4. I´m serious. I wasn´t born and I´m not here for nonsense and mediocrity lol
    Anyone who want to understand the power of Tina and what a beast and force of nature born to perform with an unique and original style should watch Tina performing in her heyday (even though she slays to this day). I´ll leave some links (some of them when she was 50 years old already no less):

  11. JOHNVIDAL February 8, 2017

    Those vocals! those legs…

  12. Nate February 8, 2017

    The strangest thing about Tina, she was truly her sexiest in her 40’s and beyond. The baddest chick!
