Default Tina Turner!

Anyone going to the Tina Turner concert? I'm going to the NY shows (going on sale soon tomorrow). I was barely born when she was at her peak, but I can def respect a great icon. Do discuss. I'm excited!

Her early stuff with Ike produced a few gems but all bets were off the minute she walked onto the set of Mad Max 3.

Someone else who probably won't come back. I must be scaring them away.

I wouldn't say "just"
She's got alot more merit as a singer than a majority of the artists out today.
I'm not a huge fan myself, but I don't think Rihanna is a good comparison.

Agreed. I'm not a fan myself either, but her early career with Ike, as jackhammer pointed out, produced some great soul songs.
Her stage presence was pretty special during that time too.

When is this going to be? I'm wondering if she still has the same "kick" when she sings =)

She has a good voice, but I agree that her stage presence it what really sets her apart. I'd love to go see her show.

And I love it when she sings "Proud Mary". I know it's been done so many times, but every time I see her sing it, she does a fantastic job, IMHO.
