Tina Turner - Break Every Rule - Single

EMI Promo

Break Every Rule! Tina breaks all rules and records with her ongoing tour: 83,000 people experienced an energetic, cheerful Tina Turner live at four (!) soldout concerts in the Westfalenhalle, Dortmund. Overcrowded, sold out arenas in all other major cities in Germany speak for themselves. No doubt, Tina's show is a hot candidate for the title "Tour of the Year".

Simultaneously to the tour, the title song from the hit album BREAK EVERY RULE has been released, which has already reached double platinum status.

"Break Every Rule" was written, remixed and produced by Rupert Hine, who also produced "Better Be Good To Me," "I Might Have Been Queen" (from the LP predecessor PRIVATE DANCER) and "I'll Be Thunder".
