Tonight Live is the third single from the album Live In Europe, recorded in Birmingham, England on March 23, 1985 at Tina’s Private Dancer Tour. The original studio version, taken from David Bowie's Tonight album, was already a single in 1984.
The music video shows Tina in a black leather dress, talking to the audience and singing the first part alone. Then David appears from behind on a platform, and the whole crowd went crazy. While he sings the second part, he comes down the stairways to Tina. During the instrumental part of the song Tina and David dancing together and they finish the song as a duet. The clip, directed by David Mallet and produced by Jacqui Byford, was taken from the Private Dancer Tour home video. It is also available on the Simply The Best video collection on DVD.
