Wild Lady of Rock (1978 - 1980)

Tina Turner - Wild Lady of Rock - Tour

After the first concerts in America and Australia in 1977, Tina was constantly on tour the following years to pay her debts and arrived solo for the first time Europe at the beginning of 1978. Dressed in Bob Mackie costumes and supported by four dancers, she performed several cover versions of popular songs, some old ones from Ike & Tina and some new tracks after the recording of her solo records Rough and Love Explosion. Because the setlist changed repeatedly over the time, it’s very hard to list all songs she performed. In 1979, she was also for a five week tour in South Africa, for which she was later often criticized. The concert from London’s Apollo Theatre on March 25, 1979 was released on home video.
