Twenty Four Seven Tour 2000 • In 1999, Tina planned a greatest hits album and an elaborate co-headlining tour with Elton John. But during the rehearsals for the VH-1 special Divas Live, Tina wasn’t happy with the band and stopped everyone from playing and instructed John how to play Proud Mary.
"I made a mistake when I needed to show him how to play 'Proud Mary'. The mistake is you don't show Elton John how to play his piano. He just went into a rage, which he apologized for later. He said it was wrong.“
Because of this, Tina canceled all common activities and decided with her manager Roger Davies to record her final studio album Twenty Four Seven in London and to go on tour by herself in 2000. The only concert together was the Millennium Show in Las Vegas on December 31, 1999. But unlike previously planned, Tina opened the show alone and Elton followed her with his own set.
The „Twenty Four Seven Tour“ became the highest grossing tour in 2000 with 95 concerts in North America and 21 open air shows in Europe. Tina decided to do a retrospective of her career, so she included her first hit A Fool In Love, which she didn’t performed for a quarter of a century. Additionally, she choose some of her favorite R&B hits like „I Heard It Through the Grapevine“ and „Sittin On The Dock Of A Bay“. After 16 years, when Tina was the opening act for Lionel Richie's Can’t Slow Down Tour in 1984, Lionel was beside others the opening act for this tour. Opening night was in Minneapolis on March 23 and closing night in Anaheim on December 6, where Tina said goodbye to her fans and took a four year break from the music business.
The concerts at the Wembley Arena in London were recorded and released on the official home video One Last Time at the end of the year.
