Before Tina started her Wildest Dreams Tour in 1996, she gave a private concert in Brunei, to celebrate the 19th birthday of the niece of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah on April 13. The setlist of the concert was a little bit different than on the tour and she was accompanied from Vanessa-Mae as a special guest to open the concert. This 4 CD set with a hologram picture on the front comes in a yellow paper sleeve and was produced only for the guests of Princess Hamidah’s birthday celebration, together with an additional LaserDisc. It includes also the performance from Vanessa-Mae.

Tina Turner gave a secret performance last week for the family of the sultan of Brunei. Turner, 57, sang for an audience of 300 in Brunei at a party to celebrate the 19th birthday of the niece of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, the world’s richest man. Guests included celebrities flown in from around the world. Roger Davies, Turner’s manager, refused to say anything more about the event. The oil-rich sultan lets little news of royal activities emerge from his 1,778-room palace. “We have actually signed a form saying we haven’t seen a thing,” said Rory Madden, Turner’s sound engineer. “We haven’t seen anything except decadence beyond belief. There were gold doors, gold everything and 10,000 roses flown in from London for the party.”
