Ike & Tina Turner are not so much known about their records, but because of their live shows. They were the hottest and most unusual R&B performers of their time, constantly on the road.
With the success of River Deep, Mountain High in 1966, they developed their show more into rock’n roll and toured for the first time Europe and Australia. From The Rolling Stones, they were invited in 1966 to open their UK tour and once again in 1969 for their North American tour. With this wider audience profile in their home country, The lke and Tina Turner Revue was guest on many variety shows and picked up the opportunity to perform in the casinos of Las Vegas
In the seventies, with hits like Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits and I Want To Take You Higher, Ike & Tina toured all over the world in big arenas and at festivals. They were also the first show act who outsold the Olympiahalle in Munich, Germany.
The setlist from their concerts changed constantly, so it’s impossible to list all songs they performed live. To get an idea of their shows, you can listen to such fantastic live albums like What You Hear Is What You Get or The World of Ike & Tina or you can watch the home video Live in ’71.
