Tina Turner - World Tour 1984

While Tina was the opening act for Lionel Richie’s North American concert tour, her new single What's Love Got To Do With It was released to promote her upcoming album Private Dancer. Because of the success of the single and the album, she continued touring on her own in North America, Australia and South East Asia till the end of 1984, but she fulfilled also a previous contract for some gigs at McDonalds restaurants and did some tv appearances in Europe to promote the album. This tour should not be confused with the Private Dancer Tour in 1985. Beside most songs from the Private Dancer album, Tina performed also three songs from Ike & Tina as well as the two new songs „Let’s Pretend We’re Married“ from Prince and „Legs“ from ZZ Top. A complete concert is available on the bootleg Live In Chicago, which was broadcasted on the radio from the Park West Music Theatre in Chicago on August 17, 1984.
