ike & Tina Turner - Live at Circus Krone - Album

Live at Circus Krone is a live album from a sell out show at the Circus Krone in Munich, Germany from Ike & Tina’s 1973 European tour. The concert took place on November 03, just before Ike’s birthday. At the same time, The Rolling Stones were in town, because they recorded a new album and Mick Jagger watched the whole show from backstage. Unfortunately, two songs from the tracklist are not live: Baby, Get It On is a different version with lead vocals from Ike and Nutbush City Limits is the well known single version.

1973 - That was the time, when Ike &Tina Turner had reached their heights of popularity in Europe. With four major world hits in the back, the Ike & Tina Turner Review had become household word. There was really nobody left in the world that hadn't heard about this wonderful American show-couple, that came to Europe every year and who appeared on almost any major television show in 1973. "River Deep - Mountain High", "A Fool In Love", "l ldolize You", "Proud Mary" and "Nutbush City Limits". Church House, Outhouse, Ginhouse - it all came together.

Germany was their territory and Munich had become a second home for Ike & Tina Turner. The Record Company was located here and they felt home and had made a lot of friends in Germany. Their following was become unnumerable - wherever they went, Ike & Tina were followed by the press and their fans.

Than the European Tour 1973: From Kopenhagen to London, from Paris to Belgrade - Yugoslavia. 46 cities and 46 sell out shows - all over Europe. Munich - Nov. 3rd, 1973. Just before Ike's Birthday - Scorpio -, "The Circus Krone show".

The Rolling stones were in town, since they where recording their EXILE on Main Street Album at the Musicland Studios in Munich. Mick and Ike & Tina had been close friends for many years - since 1965 when their "River Deep Mountain High" record hit the English charts and Ike & Tina were touring Great Britain with the Rolling Stones.

The Circus was a total sell-out and you couldnā€˜t get one more person into the joint. Mick Jagger was backstage and stood on the right side of the stage for the whole concert and was watching Tina - like he was watching himself.

The show was great - you can hear it right on this record - and you can feel it too. The party that was celebrating the event - was lasting for three more days - with all the Rolling Stones and their friend Billy Preston present at the Munich-Hilton Hotel. We all had a great time.

Nothing else to say, but listen to this, never before released record and listen to the sound of IKE & TINA TURNER in 1973.
