Tina Turner Gateshead Stadium 22nd July 1990

Tina Turner Gateshead Stadium 22nd July 1990
tinatixTina Turner had just released her seventh studio album “Foreign Affair” and went out on a massive stadium tour of Europe. The tour played to and amazing three million people, breaking the Stones’ record for attendances on a European tour. The tour was billed as a farewell tour (it wasn’t of course), and 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 show came to Gateshead Stadiun for two nights and north east fans were treated to a high energy performance, and all those classic Tina Turner songs. TinaProgTina ran around the stage, danced, sang, screamed and gave 110% without taking a breath. The lady is amazing. I think support may have been Joe Cocker?
