CashBox Review

January 17, 1987

Tina Turner comes back to HBO in March for her second solo special on the channel, entitled, promotionally enough, 'Tina Turner Breaks Every Rule'. The crowned queen of Rock ’N’ Roll struts her stuff at a small club in Europe, performing tunes from her recent „Break Every Rule“ LP from Capitol along with some meaty R&B tunes culled from her early repertoire. Blues rocker Robert Cray also makes an appearance.

Billboard Review

June 06, 1987

To Tina Turner’s credit, she has always aligned herself with top industry talents. In this video, loosely structured on Turner as a chanteuse on the European nightclub circuit, she fronts for such songwriters as Mark Knopfler, David Bowie, and Wilson Pickett and a tight group of musicians who add their heat to her own. There’s even a cameo appearance by Max Headroom. Highly stylized, this is an hour of Turner strutting, syncing, and pouting. A hot ticket for true fans.
