Tina Turner is quite the daredevil at age 68. At a concert on Sunday night in the middle of her encore she decided it would be fun to hop on the hydraulic lifting arm that connected her stage to the aerial platform. In her spiked heels, Tina was nearly 2 stories above her audience having a blast. And speaking of blasts, Tina will be celebrating her 69th birthday on Wednesday by performing at a concert in Newark, New Jersey.
Tina is not only still a powerful performer with a powerful voice she has a rockin’ body for a woman practically in her 70’s. Her famous legs do not disappoint and the woman can still shake it up. Tina’s concert lasts 3 hours and she doesn’t even have a new album of songs to help support her, but she doesn’t need it. She has pulled out all the old favorites for her fans to enjoy. She has an awesome 7 piece band that helps her with “What’s Love Got to do with it” “River Deep Mountain High”, “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” and of course the always sensational “Proud Mary” does not disappoint, just to name a few. Tina doesn’t even have an opening act because really she doesn’t need anyone but herself and her fans. You would never know that Ms. Turner had been retired for 8 years.
