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.

Tina the legend Queen of Soul
The show is an incredible journey through the life of an
Icon. From the poor upbringing and brutality of a father and a mother who gave up on her. It shows the strength and belief of a wonderful who knew she would make it and her dream would come true Rae, 25 May 2023
Superb Show, would go again. Samantha, 25 May 2023

Very talented actors and actresses. Great story
(Saturday matinee) I truly enjoyed the show and had been looking forward to it for quite some time. The show began 30 minutes late, which interfered with dinner reservations, and so I had to leave prior to the end. Maggie, 14 May 2023

A very moving story, which accurately tracks key moments in Tina’s life and career.
Brilliant use of linking her songs into the story line.
We were quite emotional at the interval.
Second half very different and wow what a talented group of performers.
Such powerful voices, which is why it is so worthwhile going to a live show Anthony, 05 May 2023

A great show of Tina Turner's life.
The seats were fantastic for the price we paid. Only at the very end, we had to crouch to see her head, only because we were standing and dancing. Gabriella, 27 Apr 2023

The entire cast and Tina band were amazing but the leading lady was way beyond amazing. I would glady go again. Soultana, 19 Apr 2023
The music, the singing, the dancing… it was spectacular!!! The main character has a better voice than the real Tina Turner. Such a good show! 15/10 recommend it for anyone!!! Claudia, 16 Apr 2023
Pacy, great singers and actors and brilliant band. It was fabulous from start to finish. Denise, 15 Apr 2023
On the money
Amazing likeness on all parts. Acting fantastic, music and singing couldn’t have been better. Tina you are simply the best. Jannine, 14 Apr 2023
Play or Musical?
In my opinion, Tina, the musical, mixes spousal abuse with music and leaves the audience to feel what? Dwells heavily on Ike’s abuse of Tina and overrides with Tina’s music.
It is not a musical feel good until very end when they rev it. Prior to that, her music is overshadowed by Ike’s dominance and Tina’s submissiveness. If that is the producer’s message, they achieved it Les, 14 Apr 2023
Fantastic from start to finish Deborah, 14 Apr 2023
It was excellent.
Story is good, based on true events, with many jokes made us laughing. Andrea, 12 Apr 2023

A fabulous show

I have seen a lot of musicals and this was the most exceptional ever in every way! Jane, 11 Apr 2023
So much high energy loved it
So good some racism and swearing so maybe not for young children but teenagers onwards Suzanne, 07 Apr 2023
This is musical theater at its best
What's not to like about a true story about a woman who had a dream, held back with rascism anda dominant brutal husband! She came through at 40yrs old because one person could see what she was & believed in her. Thank goodness❤️
The Tina we saw was also Simply the best, & we were able to join in at the end FABULOUS Jacqueline, 06 Apr 2023
Great singing, acting and story. A great true story of self determination. Had a super evening powerful atmosphere throughout and finale really good. Ivan, 06 Apr 2023
Energetic, professional performances from all
We were at the back of the dress circle and it sounded a bit faint to begin with but soon became stunning. Good views of stage even though we were in the back row. My husband got sciatica and one of the staff members kindly brought him a cushion so that he could half lean/ half sit on the hand rail in a standing position for the second half of the show. Way above and beyond her duties. We were so grateful. The seats were comfortable, problem due to my husbands health not the seats. Absolutely stunning show. Susan, 05 Apr 2023
Fantastic story very well told. Great acting and singing by all of the cast. Best west end show we have ever seen.

A wonderful evening
This show is a definite must see, the music, the acting, the costumes, the stage settings were incredible leslie, 01 Apr 2023
Okay but not simply the best
This show is okay and if you can get cheap tickets worth seeing. I only paid £20. The singing, in the main was average, albeit I accept Tina Turner is probably a hard act to replicate . Mark, 31 Mar 2023
not to be missed

Absolutely amazing!!!!! Roger, 26 Mar 2023
Fantastic acting and singing the kids were brilliant
The show was very entertaining and lively a real feel good feeling and good fun Pamela, 25 Mar 2023
A Spectacular Show, not to be missed
Arrived 45 minutes before show, easy entrance, all staff totally respectful. If you bring a bag expect it to be checked. Amazing opening to the show, you could easily immerse yourself into each era that was being portrayed. The musical was spectacular, I couldn't believe how the lead Tina could keep singing and the dialog with the fast-paced routines. The amazing voice of the actor playing Ike. The costumes were brilliant, really superb representation of Tina's life. The unexpexted humour had me belly chuckling, and even some of the songs brought tears to my eyes with the emotion from the stage. The band, wow, they did an awesome job. I have waited 3 years to see this show, and the show did not disappoint. Would see it again if it comes on tour to closer to home. Paula, 25 Mar 2023
Tina Turner Musical was Brilliant

Fantastic musical covering Tina's story from the start of her music career until she reaches the top. Beautiful singing, costumes and acting. Jacqueline, 04 Mar 2023
Thoroughly enjoyed the the show, actors were exceptional, didn’t like som of the language used it wasn’t necessary to the story, Although grown up Tina was amazing, little Tina was the star of the show Tracey, 03 Mar 2023
Exceeded all expectations. My only advice would be to tell everyone you know to book a ticket. What a woman & what a life.
She should be applauded for all she’s achieved in spite of those who tried to tear her down. Uplifting & joyous show, Elinor, 03 Mar 2023
Amazing show, amazing seats, actors are amazing. Amy, 01 Mar 2023
