Tina with Greg Walsh & Martyn Ware, 1983

The Tube was a British music television programme from November 1982 to April 1987, presented live by different hosts. Tina was guest on the show when her new single Let’s Stay Together charted at #6 in England. Beside an interview, she performed a mini concert with nine songs together with her band and her two female dancers. Let’s Stay Together was performed twice from Tina with different outfits, but both versions with the producers Martyn Ware and Greg Walsh providing background vocals. The show was produced at Tyne Tees studios in Newcastle with a young Annie Lennox in the audience watching the show. After this legendary performance from Tina, she never returned, but in 1986 they showed a pre-recorded interview and a never officially released music video for the song Overnight Sensation in 1986.
