TINA: Video (Concert)

At The Apollo (1979)

Tina Turner - At The Apollo - Video

At The Apollo is Tina’s very first solo home video with a concert from London’s Apollo Theatre, recorded on March 25, 1979. Dressed in Bob Mackie costumes and supported by four dancers, Tina performed several cover versions of popular songs, some old ones from Ike & Tina and some new tracks from her solo records Rough and Love Explosion. The video was first released in short form with a selection of the original setlist in 1979 under the title „At The Apollo,“ but was later also released as an one hour concert under the title Wild Lady of Rock in 1984.
