Just in case you needed a reminder why she is “simply the best,” Queen of Rock & Roll Tina Turner looked every bit the part when she stepped out in London last night (April 17) to celebrate the premiere of ‘Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.’ A biographical musical based on her life (as we previously reported here), the legendary songstress and husband Erwin Bach took to the event’s long-awaited opening in Londontown’s famed Aldwych Theater.
Dressed down in all black and all smiles for what’s reportedly her first red carpet appearance in half a decade, Turner toasted Tony-nominated performer Adrienne Warren (who plays her in the musical), took pics with all the cast, and looked to be quite pleased with the show.

The elusive Turner, who has certainly attended events over the last few years since her announced retirement, used the premiere as her return to the red carpet. The musical comes ahead of the icon’s soon-to-come tell-all book (click here to read more on that).
