The What’s Love? Tour was Tina’s first American tour since 1987 to promote the movie and soundtrack What's Love Got To Do With It about her life story. Originally intended as a North American tour only, Tina decided to add a few dates in Europe at open air festivals and some concerts in Australia and New Zealand. Shortly before the Australian leg, she performed also at the New South Wales Rugby League Grand Final in Sydney's football stadium, because she supported the Winfield Cup since 1989. In Adeleide, Ayrton Senna surprised her by showing up on stage during her concert, after Senna won the Australian Grand Prix on that day. Tina had already sung The Best, but decided to play it again as a tribute to him after he left the stage.
The setlist was very similar to her previous Foreign Affair Tour, Tina added only her new hit single I Don’t Wanna Fight and the song „Legs,“ which she performed already at her Private Dancer Tour. Unfortunately, only at opening night in Reno, she performed also the songs „I Might Have Been Queen“ and Disco Inferno.
