Tina Turner - Live In Rio ’88 - Video

Rio ’88 is the home video release of Tina’s legendary concert at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro on January 16, 1988 as part of her 1987 / ’88 Break Every Rule Tour. With this concert in front of over 180,000 people, Tina broke an attendance record that landed her in the Guinness Book of World Records with the largest paying audience for a single artist. Unfortunately, some songs from the original setlist are missing in this release. The tracks Show Some Respect and It’s Only Love have been broadcasted in a tv special in South America and the video footage of the encore song Nutbush City Limits was used for the music video of the first German single from the album Live In Europe.

On 16 January 1988, Tina Turner, the Lioness of Rock, performed in front of a record-breaking crowd in Rio de Janeiro. Accompanied by a stunning line-up of musicians, samba dancers, glitter and fireworks, Tina delivers 13 tracks in her own intimitable and explosive style.

… During the Break Every Rule Tour TINA performed in South America for the first time. It was in January of '88, and TINA made history (and the Guinness Book of World Records) when she performed to a crowd of 180,000 people at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. It was the biggest paying audience for a single artist ever; it surpassed Frank Sinatra's record set eight years before at the same soccer stadium.
