Because of the massive success of the album Private Dancer and it’s singles, Tina went on the road again in 1985 with this tour. After playing at small venues in 1984 that had been booked before her big comeback, this tour continues in large, sold-out arenas all over the world.
The setlist was different in Europe and the rest of the world, because in the meantime the soundtrack for the movie Mad Max was released and Tina performed also her new hit single We Don’t Need Another Hero and the second new song One Of The Living live. Also the tourbooks are different, because the European edition contains almost pictures from her 1984 World Tour.
Parts of the concert at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, England on March 23, 1985 were released on home video later that year, which includes special appearances by Bryan Adams and David Bowie. Bryan was also the opening act in Europe and performed at most of the concerts It’s Only Love together with Tina. As a special encore song, she choose „Dancing In The Dark“ from Bruce Springsteen.
