Wetten, Dass..? (Wanna bet that..?) was the biggest and most successful German language television show in Europe, broadcasted from 1981 to 2014. Tina Turner was six times guest in the show for promotion over a period of 19 years.
At her first appearance in 1985, Tina performed her last European single I Can’t Stand The Rain from the Private Dancer album and one year later the first single Typical Male from her new album Break Every Rule. After a five year break, she was guest in 1991 again with „Way Of The World“ from her greatest hits album Simply The Best. In 1996 she performed In Your Wildest Dreams after a funny interview with Thomas Gottschalk. Actually she was already on her Wildest Dreams Tour and came from three concerts at the Kremlin Palace in Moscow. Although she had a cold, she was professional as always. At her fifth appearance in 1999 she did an interview again and performed for the first time live her new single When The Heartache Is Over. Because she lost her bet, Tina did „Happy Birthday” for the audience and before she left, she signed a car for a charity auction. The last appearance was in 2004, performing live Open Arms. She also did a short commercial for the show in which she speaks in German „Mit dem Zweiten sieht man besser!”. It’s a slogan from the ZDF which means “With the second, one looks better!”, because the ZDF is historically the second TV station in Germany.
Tina was also guest at the Dutch version, called Wedden Dat? in 1999, performing When The Heartache Is Over.
