❤ TINA TURNER,...an Icon as a Live Performare,and Artist..❗

🔹 TINA TURNER,...what can I say. 6 month ago a friend send me a clip from YouTube. I have some of her records on vinyl,have listen to her records and also earlier.....a long time ago see her on TV. But never see her doing a Live Performance on stage,I have now.....thanks to YouTube.

The sound is not so good on YouTube-clips than on vinyl-records,but it doesn't matter,to see this heroin-lady (as Oprah Winfrey says) in Live Performance is out of this world

To see her performing live is marvelous,she owns the stage,and the audience eat from her hands. She was known as to have 100% public-contact from the first song. And I think you know about  her energy,dynamic,intensenty,electrisity and always giving 100% on stage. Some facts...

◾Tina Turner has sold more concert tickets than any other solo-artist...over all times ❗ 

◾ 11 World Tours, every one Sold Out,the longest "Break Every Rule Tour" in 1988, 218 conserts....and we talk here about Arena-concerts. Not many artists can fill arena-conserts,all Tina's was Sold Out. 

◾ Tina's last Tour was 2009,she was then 69 years old,and have been away from stage 9 years. This Tour goes in Europé and USA, 96 concerts.....everyone Sold Out. Believe that,....away from the music-business 9 years,return,and every Arena-concert Sold Out. She also get top-writings in all "newspapers"...as all called her,..."The Queen of Rock'n'Roll".....69 years old,and the same energy on stage ❗ 

◾ Tina has the world-record of the biggest concert in all times,it was at Maracana-stadium in Rio de Janeiro 1988. 188 000 people was at the concert....think about that, 188 000 people. The second place has George Michael,the same stadium with "only 😉" 160 000 people.

◾ TINA; The Musical,...a musical of her life had World Premier in London some week ago. Tina loves England,London and was glad that this musical starts in London.

◾ A new book about Tina come in october,the first "I Tina" came 1986.

◾ Tina has won everything you can think of in the business, Kennedy Center Honored ect,the last one in januari this year.....The Lifetime Achivements Award,because of this price they shall have a big concert for her this summer. Best Rock voice of all time and of the 100 best sing voices of all times she is on place 17.......not bad for a rock-singer.

This is a start-post to this thread,maybe others here can put in something about this Iconic Artist. She loved to performe in England,I shall later post a clip from her consert at Wembley-stadium year 2000,she was then 60 years old....maybe some of you visit that consert?

At last,here is a clip from 1990,a concert in Barcelona. From the "Foreign Affair World Tour" 124 conserts.Tina was here 50 years old.....but,holy sh-t .... Look at the powerlady❗  Here we can talk about electrisity....enjoy.

As I say,Tina you shall see,hear live...not on record.

Original Post

I don't know were you get your info from Peder, according to Bill Board Tina Turner is ranked 23 on the top touring artists of the decade list. Also remember its hard to say Tina or any pop/rock solo artist is a solo artist in the true sense of the word as she has a large band & backing singers & I guess some dancers as well in her stage show.

Rolling Stones are the #1 grossing band;   
Total Gross: $869,471,325      Number of Shows: 264     
Total Attendance: 8,236,586   Number of Sell-Outs: 190
 
Madonna is the top grossing “solo” artist
Total Gross: $801,299,671 Number of Shows: 248
Total Attendance: 6,387,124 Number of Sell-Outs: 244
 
The Dave Matthews Band has sold more tickets
Total Gross: $505,447,901 Number of Shows: 547
Total Attendance: 11,230,696 Number of Sell-Outs: 282
 
Celine Dion had (both) more shows & more sell-outs
Total Gross: $536,593,262 Number of Shows: 792
Total Attendance: 4,099,963 Number of Sell-Outs: 597
 
Tina Turner is ranked #23 
Total Gross: $212,012,527 Number of Shows: 168
Total Attendance: 3,205,895 Number of Sell-Outs: 106

🔹 MIKE-B,...yes I have seen this and alot of other info to,for example....for a long time I had the number of 184 000 people for her big concert. Just a month ago I have the right number of people 188 000.

It's so many facts on internet,but I have done alot of research the last 6 month about Tina Turner. Have been in contact with people who is very near Tina herself. Also write to her,but thats a secret that I not can talk official about.

So this is as near the truth you....I can get. But it doesn't matter,the meaning of this thread is to talk about her, and if we have some memories, because of the fantastic Live Performer she is in first place.I haven't listen to her for at least 15-18 years,it was when my friend send me that YouTube-clip, and I see her perform live that I say to myself....Whaooo❗ 

After that,the records I have means nothing,it gives me a complitly different feeling to see her performe live. An another example,the song "Undercover Agent For The Blues" from the same concert....Barcelona 1990.Play that song from the record, and than listen to the clip.....the record is not near.....it's a fantastic Live Performance of that song in that concert....I shall post the clip here later.

In this days the music business "make artist" if you know what I mean,it's good to see artist with real talent who can performe live.

And of course she is a solo-artist,every solo artist has a band. But in many tours she was alone at stage.....no dancers.

The Rolling Stone paper writes in an article,..."other solo artists needs alot of dancers,fancy kostyms,big stage decor ect ect....Tina just need herself, a good band and the public".....that says everything.She is in a league of herself,just hear her voice and look at her contact with the public/audience.

The most of times I listen to this clips with my headphones,thru phone,Ipad or computer because it's importent to see the picture to,otherwise you lost at least half of the performance....I have a good dac of course 😉.

Peder,  there is an old saying that if you give the same numbers to 6 statisticians (or accountants) you will get 6 different answers. 

I saw Tina live when she was Ike & Tina Turner when they were part of a multi-band gig in San Francisco in the late 1960's,  they were not very good (sorry to say).     I also saw her in Minneapolis sometime around 2000;  that was a great concert,  very professional performance & great sound,   sorry for me it was a last minute ticket & I did not have a good seat & view.    But even so she does not get a regular play on my system

MIKE-B,....I agree with you,as I say I haven't played her much on my system. Tina is an artist that you shall see live....not listen to records. I think it was because of that she was on so many tours. They say that she was the most hard working women in the music-business,she wants to meet the public.....the public made her better.

Oprah made a TV-program to celebrate her at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas...it was Sold Out,Tina was 68 years old then. In that program Tina say that she shall go out for one more Tour....the last. She say that she wants to meet her fans,the public one more time. She gets standing ovations in 10 minutes after saying that.

I'm surpriced that I'm been so "overwhelming" about her now,but I think it has something to do with what she says in an intervju......"people know it wasn't Hollywood,it was real....I live this life".

David Bowie also say in an intervju, " when I performe with other artist and look in their eyes when we sing,....there eyes were cold,they only do their job......When I performe and sing with Tina,whaoo,you should see her eyes,full of feelings for the music.....it wasn't only a job for her'.

I think maybe that can be one of the things, that made her so big as an Live Performare. And I think that is what I like when I see this clips.....an artist that give her all when she performes...not just doing her job.

Mike-B,her period with Ike I don't like,but from 1983 "Let's Stay Together" and forward....when she goes into Rock'n'Roll. That's more what I like with her.

Here is the clip I talk about earlier,from 1990, track "Undercover Agent For The Blues".

It's from the tour "Foreign Affair World Tour",the sound is a little low,less of dynamics in this clip.I shall post the hole concert from 1990 it's better. This is a concert well worth to looking at...Tina as she's best with much energy in her voice.

----------------------------------------------------------

Här kommer en YouTube-video till dig! https://www.youtube.com/watch?...H4T4OgVU&sns=sms

Peder🙂 

Here comes the hole concert from 1990 "Foreign Affair World Tour" in Barcelona.The concert is 1,35 long,many says this is one of Tina's best concerts. Her voice is full of power,energy....just listen.

Watch the first song "Steamy Windows",after 30 seconds the public is in extas❗ 

◾"Undercover Agent For The Blues" is 15,50 minutes in in the concert.

Mike-B,...exactly,and because of that, I go to the source herself and people just near her 😉.

But you have been at a concert,....not me, so you have +1 against me 👍🏻.I live in the northen part of Sweden,1000 km from Stockholm so not so many World Artists came up here.

But in summer1990 Tina shall have a concert in Bremen Germany,we came from southern part of Europé but must go home to Sweden. It was the nearest I have been to a Tina concert....just 10km.

Shit happens😎.

◾Mike-B,...I shall post a clip for you,it's from her concert at Wembley-stadium,London year 2000. It must have been the same concert that you see in your country. The song is "Addicted To Love"...a real Rock'n'Roll track....enjoy.

Tack Peder,  nice thought but U-Tube clips get me rocking about a much as 5/4 time Rap on MP3

My country is UK:  in late 60's I was bumming around USA, mostly SF & LA & got see a lot of bands & people.  In my work life I travelled in many parts of the world, Minneapolis (were I last saw Tina) was my companies HQ for R&D & Engineering.

kuma posted:

Peder, Yes I do!

Kuma,...same here. I buy my briks new 1991 and still have them.Later I get a pair of Keltiks,but I sold them after 10 month and kept the briks.

I remember when I play Tina's "The Best and Two People" on my aktive briks around 1992,it's sounds really good. But "Two People" on Linn Kan was also really really good.

I must learn to post in pictures here,this and other threads looks more fun to look at then.

🔴 Tack Peder,  nice thought but U-Tube clips get me rocking about a much as 5/4 time Rap on MP3

😃 A swedish word,...thank's.

Then you are a little bit older than me,it must have been fantastic to be there in USA under that time......Janis Joplin,Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival,Jefferson Airplane,Allman Brothers,Greateful Dead,Chicago,Blood Sweat and Tears ect,ect and all this Underground Clubs....whaoo👍🏻 you must have great memories.

🔴 About YouTube-clips,I must tell you a little story. I have been/are a real hard core-guy on vinyl replay,always have a top-spec LP12. I have had different top-spec CD-players over the years ,but almost never played on them....the different in soundquality to vinyl replay was so big.

In the middle of 2011 I heard a Linn streamer for the first time (I wasn't interesting in digital replay),it was Linn Akurate DS (a friend has it),it cost around £6000 here in Sweden in 2011. My friend often talks about the look in my face when I heard it.....I asked him if it was "broken" in some ways 😁 . It sounds terrible! There you have my level when we talk "digital replay". Later that year I also heard a Linn Klimax DS that another friend has,same experience.....better but still terrible against vinyl replay.

Because of this story,it's strange that I can listen too YouTube-clips and enjoy it,......but I can. You must see it as it is,a good way to see some of your favorite artists play live.I also think, that you have another experience/feeling when you see AND hear the artist at the same time....it compensate for the lower soundquality in some way.It must be so,because I can listen to it and enjoy it....and you see my "digital story up here".

Many,many clips are very bad in soundquality,but if you look at...say 15 clips you find one good so you can listen to it. For me I look, and listen to the music and message the musicians send out from stage under there Performance.How they move,control the stage,the contact with the audience....the real feelings they have under their performance ect.....AND here is Tina Turner in a league of her own.Nobody is near her.

As a big music journalist writes,..."If we talk Live Performance,other so called artists should be ashamed compared to Tina"

A friend of my can listen to this clips I have posted here,on his top-spec Linn-system..he has the best system that Linn have built....always the latest in upgrades. But I listen with this Equipment, smartphone,ipad or computer.Bowers & Wilkins P9 headphones,Audioquest Dragonfly Black and/or Red usb-dac. I think this had good synergy, so you can enjoy it and don't think about the loss in soundquality.

We are many here in Sweden who send music tips,clips to each other.Many of them have buy'd Bowers & Wilkins P7 and Audioquest Dragonfly Black usb-dac's.....just to see this tips/clips. An easy/cheap way to see this clips, when you see TV,someone send you a clip/tips...just put on your headphones and start your smartphone....And there you are,a Live Performance in a few seconds.....just be a little Openminded to this YouTube-clips,a little different experience....but still music..❗ 

/Peder🙂 

🔹 We stop here with YouTube explainations, and go back to TINA TURNERS fantastic carreer.❗ 

I have write this earlier,but here you have it with a little more explaination.....

💥 Year 2000.
Tina starts her Twenty Four Seven Tour in Minneapolis, March 23. It's the most successful tour of her career. ◾Guinness World Records announced that Tina sold more concert tickets than any other solo concert performer in music history◾. At the last show of the tour in Anaheim,Netherlands,December 6, Tina says goodbye and takes a four year break from the music business.

It was there,in Minneapolis that Mike-B saw Tina's concert.

/Peder🙂 

Here I throw in a clip again from her last Tour,when the tour starts she was 69,....but here she has passed her birthday and are 70 years old.

Believe that,70 years old and act on stage like this. As she says in an intervju,...."I have lost some tone,and have some celluites.....but I don't say witch or where".

 ◾ A comment from one in the audience,....."Awesome singing Tina,no female singers around fit to stand in your shadow......Beyonce is a Tina Turner waanabe".

💥 The song is: What You Get Is What You See.

Place: An Arena-concert....Sold Out.She did this last tour, to celebrate her 50-years on stage as a Live Performare.

The guy who sings with Tina is John Miles,a fantastic voice,and have been in her band many,many years. He has also a solo career as I think you know about.

Send me your Briks pix via mybriks.com or via [removed] and I am happy to add the page for you!

Strange,I just got an ide'.....so I compare "Ask Me How I Feel" and "Steamy Windows" from Spotify (not Tidal), against the same songs in the concert that I have post here earlier.

The concert is "Foreign Affair Word Tour" from Barcelona 1,35 long. The concert versions is much better....and it is a "YouTube-clip" 😵.

Can you think....or believe,all this young people who goes around with headphones outside and listen too this "crap". Who shall be the new costumers who buy's High End Hifi.....not all this young people,thats for sure 🤔😧.

Are we the last generation in this hobby..❓

Theron posted:

I went to see her at Hammersmith Odeon in the mid 70s on free tickets.

Ive never owned any of her CDs and don't think I've got any of her LPs.

 

Theron great,...I have around 9500 to 10 000 vinyl records but I think I just have three,maybe four of her records.

◾ Private Dancer,her great World comeback 1984.

◾ Break Every Role 1988.

◾ Foreign Affair,I think 1989.

I dont remember anyone more. As I say earlier,I like her more when she goes in to Rock'n'Roll 1983-84. But when I have done all this research, I find an a cappela version of "Let's Stay Together" from 1983, that was out of this world.

It was fantastic,her background singers just stod there listening,and look at each other and shake there heads. There we can talk about a powerful voice. But I can't find that clip again.

But from 1984,everything this powerlady have done in the music-business has been a succe's. Even now this musical "TINA;The Musical".

First they release 100 000 more tickets,and should performe to the end of october in London. Now they release more tickets, and shall performe to the end of february 2019. After that the show go to another country.

All newspapers and on "the net" give it 5 Stars,and as The Sun wrote.......◾Beg,Borrow Or Steal A Ticket◾.

/Peder🙂 

 

Theron,.....

Yeah,I have send a mail to him.But a must take some pictures.

The last year, 5 of my friends has gone back to briks,three of them has had briks before.Three of them drive them with Linn amps,two with Naim.

◾ 2 of 3 active with Linn amps...recapp't.

◾ 1of 2 active with Naim 135-amps...recapp't.

We are now if I remember right, 7 who has briks in our little group.I shall ask the others if they also will send pictures to Kuma.Have you also had briks under your "hifi-carreer".?

One thing I find puzzling, Peder: you rave about Tina Turner as a live artist - but that appears to be based on a uTube video, and other people’s ratings, but not actually experiencing her live! Live undoubtedly would have been more engaging than the video - but that is also true of other live performances, and I don’t believe it is meaningful  can’t judge one live performance against another by viewing videos of them, becaus ein part it will depend how the video is recorded and/or edited, and the actual atmosphere of the live event can only be imagined not experienced, 

As for engaging the audience, there are many artists who do that extremely well, though of course I can’t compare those I’ve seen with TT as I haven’t seen her (not to my taste). Out of interest, how many artists have you seen live to which you compare that video?

BTW, this is not knocking TT,  but simply expressing puzzlement over the basis of your very evident enthusiasm for her as a live artist 

Peder - I own a Tina Turner Live DVD.  I believe it's a 50th anniversary concert.  It's great fun to watch & listen to, but there are a couple of duds, such as when she performs We Don't Need Another Hero from Mad Max, and the scene with the Ninja stage crashers.  However, I have not seen her myself in concert, so I can't really say it's the best concert in the world, or that she's the greatest live performer in history.  I have seen other groups live - Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, The Stones, Bryan Ferry, Dire Straits, Genesis, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie - and all of them were pretty good too.  All world class  But I can't say that I'd call any of them the best I've ever seen.

LONTANO,….Fantastic story,it’s a little world we live in.Is it the guy who stands on the record as a producer.?

◾ This was the song that brought the bog comeback. After this came the record "Private Dancer" 1984.

If it is one of your best friends,maybe you have meet Tina back in days 😉.

From the Tina Turner blogg…….
◾ It was David Bowie that apparently got Tina her recording contract with Capitol Records back in the early 1980’s. Consequently, he donated two songs to her comeback albums (1984 on Private Dancer, and Girls on 1986’s Break Every Rule). And he invited Tina to be a guest vocalist on the track Tonight, of his 1984 album with the same title. It was this song that David and Tina performed together during a 1985 concert in Birmingham, that was also filmed and later released on video.

David Bowie has been a long-time admirer of Tina. In 1983, he invited a group of Capitol Records executives to Tina’s show at The Ritz in New York. They were blown away by her performance, and this finally led to the recording contract for her 1984 comeback album Private Dancer. David contributed a song for this album (and the 1986 album Break Every Rule). Returning the favor, Tina was a guest vocalist on the track Tonight, in 1984.◾

💥 Here you have three clips of ”Lets Stay Together”.

1. A live version from the program ”The Tube” 1983.Under the same period that the record was released.Here you hear the quality of her voice.


2. From her Show in Brazil,Maracana-Stadion in Rio de Janeiro 1988, under the ”Break Every Rule World Tour”. It was ◾188 000 people at the Show, World Record even today. Tina was alone on stage,no dancers on this World Tour. Amazing,alone in front of 188 000 people. The weather was so warm/hot under the Show, so the security-people said to Tina to take a break for 15 minutes. But Tina say no,and take the Show to the end in her powerful,dynamic way. Look at the end of the song,all the audience singing with her……188 000 people .


3. This is a studio version from I think around 2005.No video,just the music.
