Twenty Four Seven Tour (2000) • Actually, Tina planned a greatest hits album and an elaborate co-headlining tour with Elton John in 1999. But during the rehearsals for the VH-1 special Divas Live, Tina wasn’t happy with the band and stopped everyone from playing and instructed John how to play Proud Mary.

"I made a mistake when I needed to show him how to play 'Proud Mary'. The mistake is you don't show Elton John how to play his piano. He just went into a rage, which he apologized for later. He said it was wrong.“

Because of this, Tina canceled all common activities and decided with her manager Roger Davies to record her final studio album Twenty Four Seven in London and to go on tour by herself. The only concert together was the Millennium Show in Las Vegas on December 31, 1999. But unlike previously planned, Tina opened the show alone and Elton followed her with his own set.

The Twenty Four Seven Tour became the highest grossing tour in 2000 with 95 concerts in North America and 21 open air shows in Europe. It's a retrospective of Tina's career, including her first hit single from 1960 with A Fool In Love, which she didn’t performed for a quarter of a century. Additionally, she added some of her favorite R&B hits like „I Heard It Through the Grapevine“ and „Sittin On The Dock Of A Bay“. After 16 years, when Tina was the opening act for Lionel Richie's Can’t Slow Down Tour in 1984, Lionel was the opening act at the North American leg of this tour, while John Fogerty was the opening act at selected dates in Europe. Tina and John used this opportunity for an unique performance of Proud Mary together at London’s Wembley Arena.

Opening night was in Minneapolis on March 23 and closing night in Anaheim on December 6, where Tina said goodbye to her fans and took a four year break from the music business. The concerts at the Wembley Arena in London were recorded and released on the official home video One Last Time at the end of the year.
