Tina Turner – More News about the Musical and TV broadcast!

Hi everybody,
What a treat we had this week. Seeing Tina Turner on stage again! 😀

Here is a report from the Dutch Shownieuws. Joop van den Ende tells us, that everybody was very surpised and delighted to see Tina going on stage and performing a bit. That wasn’t in the books. Thanks Boris for the subtitles and syncing! 😀

Furthermore I was watching “It takes Two” on BBC2 last night and Alexandra Burke said that Tina Turner was in the building at that time.
She briefly met her. Tina was there for a recording. She will be on the Jonathan Ross Show at the 28th of Oct. 2017 on ITV. 10.20 – 11.20 pm. That is UK time. For the Netherlands that is: 23.20 hr. – 00.20 hr. Great news!

Then there was a little article in the Newsday newspaper. Here it is:

And there is a new book release with Tina Turner in it.
It is written by Barry Lucas and called “When Rock Went To College: Legends Live at Lancaster University 1969-1985”.
Barry Lucas and Paul Tomlinson have documented an amazing chapter in the history of Lancaster University in a superb and very large new book.
