Wild Lady of Rock (At The Apollo) is Tina’s very first solo home video with a concert from London’s Apollo Theatre, recorded on March 25, 1979. Dressed in Bob Mackie costumes and supported by four dancers, Tina 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. The video was first released in short form with a running time about 30 minutes in May 1979 under the title „At The Apollo,“ but was later also released as an one hour concert under the titles „Wild Lady of Rock“ and „Queen of Rock 'n’ Roll“ in 1984.
