Tina met at the TV-Special Hollywood Nights Olivia Newton-John’s manager Roger Davies and asked him to manage her. Roger wasn’t sure, but after he attended one of her concerts at the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel, he agreed to work as her manager. Tina told him, that she would like to do a Rock’n Roll show like the Rolling Stones, so Davies advised her to drop her band, her style and most of the songs she did before and remodeled her show into a rock showcase. The new show started in San Francisco in March 1981 and continued the following three years with slightly different setlists all over the world.
Also in 1981, Roger booked Tina for the first time for some shows at New York’s most legendary night-club „The Ritz,“ which was a massive success. In November, she was asked from The Rolling Stones to open three concerts of them, including a duet with Mick Jagger. At the end of the year, Tina was invited by Rod Stewart to perform with him at the TV-Show Saturday Night Live and also at his L.A. Forum concert on December 19, which was broadcasted via satellite worldwide. At the beginning of 1983, Tina performed again at „The Ritz,“ which resulted in a recording deal with Capitol Records and Tina’s comeback single Let’s Stay Together.
