Tina Turner Makes Rare Public Appearance to Support Opening of Musical Based on Her Life

Tina Turner hits the red carpet to attend the opening night performance of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical on Tuesday (April 17) at the Aldwych Theatre in London, England.

The legendary 78-year-old entertainer was joined by her husband Erwin Bach to watch a performance of the musical based on her life.

Tony-nominated actress Adrienne Warren as playing Tina and Variety says that she “ignites the theater.”

“Her stunningly powerful, extraordinarily controlled performance is way beyond mere perfect impersonation. Eyes flashing in hope or burning with determination, the stage burns with both her energy and the spirit she’s channeling. And she has complete command of her character’s pain and pathos and, best of all, the stillness when needed,” the outlet wrote. What a rave!

    Tina is shamefully blaming Ike for her son’s death and that’s a rotten thing to do. She stayed with Ike for 20 years and the woman had plenty of time to get out of that relationship. She has yet to make a statement about her son’s death but had already pegged him as an emotional kid in an interview on Oprah. Now she’s letting that weak sentiment stand and that’s dirty. She should blame herself for exploiting her family in these dreadful books, films, interviews and stage productions. Now she plans to write an ode to her deceased son in this miserable London Tina Turner musical. Who sings and dances to domestic abuse? Stupid. RIP Craig and Ike.
