Tina Turner's Top Hits, Rare Live Recordings and Two Exclusive New Songs
Tina Turner made headlines around the world in May when she announced that she would tour this fall and winter. To complement the eight-time Grammy Award winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer's long-awaited return to arenas throughout North America, Capitol/EMI will release Tina! on September 30, a new 18-track CD and digital collection of Turner's top hits, rare live recordings and two exclusive new tracks.
In addition to featuring all of the career-spanning hits Turner will perform at her concerts, including "What's Love Got To Do With It," "Private Dancer," "Better Be Good To Me," "We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)," "Proud Mary" (1993 version), "Nutbush City Limits," and "River Deep Mountain High," among others, Tina! features two new, exclusive tracks, titled "It Would Be A Crime" and "I'm Ready."
Four concert recordings are also featured, including "I Can't Stand The Rain," recorded live at Amsterdam Arena (1996), "Addicted To Love," recorded live at London's Camden Palace (1986), and two that have never before been released on CD, "The Best," recorded live at London's Wembley Arena (2000) and "Let's Stay Together," recorded live at Amsterdam Arena (1996).
Tina Turner's May 12 tour announcement and captivating live performance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" was the talk of the entertainment world. The program will re-air prior to the release of Tina! and Turner's tour-opening show in Kansas City, MO on October 1.
The tour will take Turner to major cities across North America for 28 concerts from October 1 to December 12, including Newark, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, DC, Toronto, and Montreal.
31 European dates will follow, from January 14 to April 3, including four nights of shows in Cologne, London, Manchester and Munich, three in Hamburg and Antwerp, two in Vienna, Paris and Arnhem and single dates in Paris, Berlin, Hannover and Zurich.
The brand new stage show will feature hit after hit spanning Turner's entire career, with a spectacular production including the singer's top-notch band, innovative choreography, hi-tech lighting and much more. With sensual, soulful and powerful vocals that have been part of music history for over four decades, the singer's explosive live set will include everything from early career singles through solo superstar smashes, as well as '90s comeback hits including "I Don't Wanna Fight" and the theme song to the James Bond film Goldeneye. The set, the production, the songs, and Turner's unique stage presence will delight her legions of fans who have followed the legendary diva's extraordinary creative journey, while seducing new admirers and proving that her vocal majesty still continues its reign to this day.
Before the tour begins, People magazine and "Entertainment Tonight" will showcase Turner with looks behind the curtain in special previews of what fans will enjoy at the concerts.
Turner's last album was released in 2004, a collection of hits with the newly recorded single "Open Arms." It was a worldwide smash, debuting at #2 on Billboard's Top 200 chart. In 2005, she was honored as one of Oprah Winfrey's legends, African-American women who have broken barriers in their lives and work, and ended the year as a Kennedy Center Honors recipient, the highest form of recognition of excellence in the arts in the U.S.
With sales totaling more than 170 million albums worldwide and a phenomenal number of hit records throughout her career, Tina Turner is the most successful female rock artist of all time and the undisputed Queen of Rock 'N' Roll.
