Wildest Dreams (1996 / '97)

Tina Turner - Wildest Dreams - Tour

After the release of the James Bond theme Goldeneye, Tina announced that she will embark on a world tour in the spring of 1996, to promote her upcoming album Wildest Dreams. It’s Tina's biggest tour to date, with over 250 dates in nearly 16 month, surpassing her Break Every Rule Tour from 1987 / '88. In America, it was sponsored with a massive campaign by Hanes, as Turner became the spokesperson for their new hosiery line.

Before opening night, Tina gave a private concert in Brunei, to celebrate the 19th birthday of the niece of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. In Johannesburg, Tina was accompanied on stage by the Vusa Dance Company on the song „Do What You Do“ and at the three concerts in Paris, actor Bruce Willis and his band „The Accelerators“ were the opening act and Bruce joined Tina on stage for the encore song Unfinished Sympathy. Oprah Winfrey announced that she would follow the tour with her talk show from Houston to New York City and described the event as followed:

"She is our goddess of rock 'n' roll. We are going to be right there with Miss Tina. We're going on tour with Tina. 'The Oprah Show' is actually going on the road with Tina. I am the biggest Tina Turner fan there is. It is my wildest dream." 

At the Australian leg, Tina’s long-time pianist Kenny Moore suffered health problems in Sydney, New South Wales. Kenny had worked with Tina since 1977. Chuck Booker replaced Moore for the remaining dates and the band dedicated every performance thereafter to him.
