  • Tina Turner: Wow!!!

    21 avr. 2009, 19h06m

    Tina Turner is back! And rocking like hardly anything has changed since I last saw her at the Ritz in N.Y. in 1981 and 1982 - her comeback years. What energy! What charisma! What a voice!! Along with her so special dance movements.

    She is unbelievable. As well as a wonderful role-model for women. Including women who soon turn 70!!

    I heard many people on the way out saying that the concert would be something to remember for a long, long time. A memory for life even. So sincerely hope this won't be the last one in Sweden. (In Holland they are crazy for her concerts; in Brazil people are even raising money to get her there, if my info is correct. Wouldn't be surprised.)

    She has such an enourmous stage personality, and genuine love for everyone, that I hardly could take my eyes off her -- apart from watching some of the outstanding musicians accompanying her. It would be great also to visit a more, let say, acoustic concert; some of the highlights came in the beginning of the second set when she was sitting down (!) and sang some more slow songs. Which you still after a while couldn't sit still to.

    I had a front row seat, worth every penny, had the time of my life, dancing and digging as if I was back in The Savoy, The Ritz and Studio 54 era in New York. Don't miss this for anything!
