20 years after "Live in Europe" EMI finally releases another live album by Tina Turner. This woman has always been more a live entertainer than a recording artist and there is no better way to experience Tina Turner than LIVE!
It is no wonder that she has sold more concert tickets than any other female artist and her 50th anniversary tour was next to Madonna's tour the most succesful of 2008-2009.
This CD was recorded live in The Netherlands and includes most of her greatest hits. Some songs have been excluded on the single disc CD but the complete show has been added in the package on DVD including the performances of her special guests "The Ninjas". The DVD is directed by award winning director David Mallet who has directed almost all of her live concert videos. Let's hope this concert will be released on Blu Ray soon as it was shot in HD.

As i saw Tina twice on the tour, all i can say is WOW. Tina made a comeback to remembered, almost at age of 70 she shows the world that she is still in good shape. Many of the shows from that Tina Turner 50th Anniversary world tour was sold out. She started the show with the Steamy Windows and ended with ballad "Be Tender With me baby". Tina is deserved more than this dvd, this is a must to everyone who like Tina and her music.
Tina is simply the best, the Queen of Rock.

This dvd was filmed from Arnhem Netherlands in may 2009

Amazing value for money. Was lucky enough to see the show live on the last night of the tour in Sheffield and was blown away. Never the biggest Tina fan, I went to see a living legend on (hopefully not) her final tour. They really don't make talent like this any more. Never before have I seen (and I've seen LOADS of shows) someone command attention so easily and her voice has to be heard live to appreciate it. I shouldn't really mention her age as it sounds patronising but the energy this woman has for someone almost 70 is incredible. The scale of the show is awesome, the effects etc but at the heart of it is Tina and her voice and energy. Absolutely unforgettable. If you're unsure, you won't be disappointed. This isn't a cash in comeback tour like other people do, this is clearly something that Tina lives for.

Having said all of that, the dvd is slightly disappointing in that for some unknown reason the director/editor seems to be obsessed by the female dancers and cuts to them at every opportunity even when Tina's on stage and when she is the one we are paying to see

What amazing value - Tina live on both DVD and CD, and what a professional presentation, as the quality of the camera and sound couldn't be bettered.

As for Tina's performance: this is the real meaning of a STAR. She holds the audience and the viewer in the palms of her hands whilst belting out hit after hit. I don't write many reviews but had to state that this DVD + CD deserves to be in everyone's collection.

TOP 50 REVIEWERon 29 April 2012
Tina Turner is a phenomenon of the music world and has been for 50 years, and it is incredible the way she can perform with such galvanising energy and elation. Her talent and beauty remain undimmed, the voice cuts straight through to the emotions, those legs are still the best, and she has a wonderful sense of self-parody as well as doing it for real. This concert is a thrilling roller-coaster ride right from the pounding start of Steamy Windows, with Tina atop a postage stamp-sized platform gradually lowering to stage level as she stands there poised for action, all knowing looks and ironic vamping, the rhythm coursing through her even though she hardly moves ... I heard Tina in Stuttgart in 1987 when she was already considered to be amazing for a woman nearing fifty, but now she defies belief - you don't even have to make allowances for her age, which is the most extraordinary thing. The DVD tends to cut away to the backing singers a bit too much for my liking, as I like to see what Tina does when she's not singing ... the dancers are fantastic but Tina's something else. The CD is also brilliant: far more than just an extra, it catches the thrill and raw, almost savage edge of Tina's delivery as if you are in the white hot heart of the matter. She can only be quite this wild in concert, and she has lost none of the fire she had at 25. The sound has the edge over the DVD, at least on my equipment, and the thrill factor simply goes off the scale.

There are few female performers who can match Tina Turners talent, energy, experience on stage, you name it she's got it. And it's pretty much all here on this CD/DVD, celebrating her 50 years in the business and it's absolutely brilliant, the stage show is spectacular, dancers, ninja performers, great musiciens, pryotechnics, huge screens everywhere and of course great music. The CD is pretty much a hit parade a condensed version of the DVD and there is no let down here with each song a gem, just crank up the volume and start dancing it's got great energy!! The DVD is the same story but with plenty of other classics (the version of "Help" for example), which will leave you breathless, her voice above all else is a testament in time, it just gets better, and to look like that at 70!!! i can understand why so many women look to her as a role model, to consider what she's gone through in her life and to come out producing music and performances like this is an incredible achievement. I just hope that she continues, as there's few performers who can do what she does, please don't stop Tina! Finally for anyone who is a fan of Tina Turner and even if you have the other DVDs of other concerts, and yes you'll find lots of tracks that you've heard plenty of times before but with every performance there's something different, and this is special. Just get it and long live Tina Turner.

A great package showing the full show in all its glory on DVD and an edited version on Cd. Having been to the shows this one really shows Tina off at her best and probably last time. Its a review of her career from that first Ike & Tina song in 1960 to 1990's Golden Eye movie title track. Oddly her 1999 album and all later releases were left out as Tina went purely for the glory days for this tour. But it worked and she rocked out to 1 million adoring fans.

VINE VOICEon 7 September 2011
Bought this just for the DVD after seeing some of the show recently on the BIO tv channel. This is absolutely superb, and as someone who never managed to get to one of her tours, this is an excellent record of what it must have been like to be there.

The whole show from intro to end is fantastic, the dancers provide a great distraction(!) and the backing singers are excellent. The band themselves are an exceptional collection including an old favourite of mine, John Miles, on guitar and Laurie Wisefield (ex Wishbone Ash) also on guitar. There's also some brilliant sax playing by Euge Groove, well worth mentioning.

The stage setting is well done, and the video clips shown in the background also are well thought out. For example during Addicted to Love, the 4 dancers had been pre-filmed dressed in black suits and palying instruments copying the famous and well-loved Robert Palmer video and this was shown on screen high above the group during Tina's version. Nice to remember Robert in this way.

All in all, a brilliant video and well recommended. Around 2 hours in length, whereas the CD is half the distance. Go get it!

A truly astonishing performance, with Tina in great voice and having a ball working the crowd. Her vocals are astounding and if anything have improved with age. This is quite remarkable when her rock and roll peers, Daltrey, Plant, Jagger are all struggling to do what they did vocally a couple of decades or more ago. The only downside to the concert as presented on the DVD are some of the set piece theatrical interludes. It's plain that they are necessary to help pace the show, allow for costume changes and let Tina catch her breath for a few minutes. However some of them are overlong and a bit tiresome. Special mention should be made of John Miles who played some great guitar parts and who shone in a very tight backing band. It's a pity that Tina hasn't performed his classic hit 'Music', as it could make a great feature in her show. As with all great performances, this CD/DVD leaves you wanting more and so fingers crossed that Tina decides to record some new material and keep performing.
