    Tina Turner Is Out of Retirement

    *From undercover.com.au:

    Tina Turner Is Out Of Retirement
    by Paul Cashmere - May 4 2008


    It looks like performing at the Grammy Awards earlier this year was all it required to inspire Tina Turner to get back to work. The Queen of R&B will start her first post-retirement tour in Kansas City in October.

    Tina will make the official announcement for the tour this week on Oprah, but the show to air May 12 was recorded last week in Las Vegas.

    The show was shot in front of an audience of 4,000 so the news is not really a secret.

    The now 68-year-old Tina Turner retired after her last tour in 2000. The Queen went out of top with the highest grossing tour of that year.

    Tina originally made her name with former husband Ike in the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. They scored global hits with 'Nutbush City Limits' and a soul version of Credence Clearwater Revivals 'Proud Mary'.

    After suffering beatings from her husband, the couple divorced in 1978.

    In 1984, Tina revived her career as a solo artist with the massive hit 'Private Dancer'. She won Record of the Year for 'What's Love Got To Do With It' at the Grammy Awards the following year.

    The 80s placed Tina in the superstar category. The hits that flowed included 'Let's Stay Together', 'We Don't Need Another Hero', 'Show Some Respect', 'Better Be Good To Me' and 'Steamy Windows'.

    Tina recorded duets with David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and Australia, Jimmy Barnes. With Barnes, she re-recorded her classic 'The Best' for a TV commercial for football.

    Details of the tour will be known after May 12.

    Having seen Tina live in concert, I can say go out and catch her while she's still out of retirement and performing. She puts on one amazing show that is well worth the price of admission!!!
