The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll is coming to the West End! Tina Turner is producing a musical, aptly named TINA, about her life – the multi-Grammy Award-winning singer, whose career spans seven decades, will open the show at the Aldwych Theatre in March 2018. This promises to be a real highlight in the 2018 calendar, so book those tickets now!
Turner’s extensive songbook includes such classics as ‘River Deep, Mountain High’, ‘Simply The Best’ and ‘Proud Mary’, which across her career won her 11 Grammy awards, sold over 180 million records and inducted her into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in history.
TINA will tell of the singer’s life, from growing up in Nutbush, Tennessee, through her turbulent partnership with Ike Turner, to defying the bounds of age, gender and race as a successful recording artist with multi-platinum albums and a James Bond theme song to her name. The production will be directed by Phyllida Lloyd, whose last West End production was the still-running global success, Mamma Mia!. Lloyd brings back a number of her collaborators, including choreographer Anthony van Laast, designer Mark Thompson and musical supervisor Nicholas Skilbeck, to lend their magical touch to TINA.
Tickets for TINA are currently on sale from 21 March – 16 June 2018. Book now and enjoy a rock ‘n’ roll highlight of 2018.

What to expect
amazing music. So should come with a trigger warning
amazing music. So should come with a trigger warning. If you’re easily triggered by domestic violence, then the show will not be for you. The first half of the show is incredibly violent. Which is to be expected as we all know that Tina experienced a lot of domestic violence in her lifetime. But seeing it depicted in such a way was jarring.
Also, the actor who played Ike turner was clearly a Brit attempting a black American accent. As a black American, it was cringey and honestly a bit offensive. The actress who played Tina was OK, but it felt like she screamed saying most of the songs.
Overall the show was decent. Amber, 25 Sep 2022

Saw Tina musical and it was grand! Very entertaining, acting/music was suberb. Seats comfortably with legroom. Sophie, 15 Sep 2022
I’m still excited. Was really great Ronny, 13 Sep 2022
Too much violence and bad language
I paid £220 for two tickets in dress circle a few months ago for yesterdays performance. Lady sitting NEXT to me paid £45 on the day. That is daylight robbery.
Show depicted far too much of her early life. Only bit we enjoyed was the end song when the whole cast came on to take their bows. Richard, 12 Sep 2022
Fantastic, difficult to stop yourself singing and dancing but chance to join in at the end
Not suitable for children in my opinion, until teens. Fantastic music Gaynor, 03 Sep 2022
Superb and realistic
The person who plays Tina sounded like the real Tina also has the same physic. Could have been her double.
Couldn’t understand though why we were asked to not clap and sing through the performance Debbie, 02 Sep 2022

Best show ever
I have seen most of the west end shows. Some more than once or twice but this was simply the best ! Suzanne, 11 Jul 2022
Amazing story and entertainment
We had such a great time at Tina. Amazing lead actress with a very Tina like voice and act (if you close you eyes you could easily be at a Tina Turner concert at times). The dancing was superb and the young Tina also a fabulous act. Overall though, it was the story that was so emotional. A fantastic show. Tim, 10 Jul 2022
The lead actor and her powerful presence was just incredible. Antti, 09 Jul 2022
A fantastic show for anyone and a great tribute for Tina
The storyline is well written and shows the difficulties Tina Turner had to go through - the music shows the whole range from the early hits with Ike to the pop hits she did afterwards. The acting, singing and dancing is fabulous from the whole ensemble! Alexander, 06 Jul 2022
The show was full of energy. If you feel the need to be uplifted this is the show to see. Would definitely see again. Brian, 05 Jul 2022
This show was amazing, an absolutely stunning performance by all involved especially the lead actress. Whether you’re a fan of Tina Tuner’s music or not, you will no doubt enjoy this show. As the show is based on her life, it is sometimes heartbreaking to see what she went through to get the career she wanted/deserved, but you admire her more for that very reason. The show was brilliant & I would definitely recommend everyone to see it…well done to everyone 👏👏👏 Linda, 02 Jul 2022
Must watch !!
Be ready for a musical that will lift you from your seats! Roshin, 01 Jul 2022

Show stopping wow
Only advice would be be aware of leg room but most theatres are the same and pre order your drinks as we did because when interval comes there’s a serge to the bar and big ques as you could imagine but being fair to bar staff they coped quite well and ques went down quickly Geoff, 26 Jun 2022

The show took you through every emotion. It was absolutely wonderful. The person that played Tina was out of the world? She must have spent hours studying Tina Turner, all her moves and voice were spot on, so much so It could have been the real been the real Tina. Definitely one too see. Liz, 20 May 2022
