Foreign Affair Farewell Tour 1989/1990

The tour supported her seventh studio album, Foreign Affair. The tour was Tina Turner's first stadium tour and only reached European countries. Overall, the tour drew in nearly three million spectators--breaking the record for a European tour that was previously set by The Rolling Stones.

The tour is notable as Tina Turner's only tour to not reach North America. Since the tour was considered a farewell tour (at that time), Tina Turner wanted to exclusively tour Europe to thank her fans for supporting her career after she left The Revue. The tour also marks Tina Turner's final performances in Italy.
The tour was advertised as a "farewell" tour as Tina Turner began to concentrate on potential acting roles. During an interview, Tina Turner stated,

"I've always thought this would be the final one but I must admit I now have mixed feelings. I'm the first woman to fill all these stadiums and the feeling from all those fans night after night was fantastic. I don't want to close that door completely. I'm going away for about a year and when I'm ready to return, I just hope the fans will want whatever I have to offer"

The groundbreaking tour was filmed at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona, Spain and was released on VHS.

    Tina Turner

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
