The lucky locals of London and Birmingham, England will be treated to a special engagement of that goddess of rhythm herself - Tina Turner - when she tapes an exclusive concert for HBO. The show will take place March 15-17 at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Center. The concert is part of Turner’s 60-date English and European tour, and it will be edited down to an hour for its cable airing at an unknown date this spring. Well, it’s about time, ain't it? And Turner isn’t the only big name of 1985 to air a cable special in the coming months.
