A tribute to Tina Turner, Totally Tina will visit St David’s Hall this spring.
A show seven years in the making, the longest running tribute to the Queen of Rock and Roll is frequently in demand, yet with the same passion, drive and attention to detail that’s earned Liverpool-born Justine Riddoch and her band the top spot since 2013, the talents behind this much-loved Show are not resting on their laurels.
Instead, they are already fine-tuning what is a unique celebration of Tina’s live concert career with a whole host of exciting set changes and flamboyant costumes, pulsating new dance routines and the characteristic custom twists which make it a hit with an army of fans nationwide.
Most importantly, and for the first time ever, the band has been asking its audiences what they’d like to hear played, so songs like I Can’t Stand The Rain, Typical Male, Undercover Agent for the Blues, I Don’t Wanna Lose You, Help and Legs – all chosen by the fans – will be added to classic favourites like Nutbush City Limits and Simply The Best.
Justine says “The support of our many fans across the country is humbling; they’re truly amazing and incredibly loyal. Every year, we make ourselves a promise to pull out all the stops, so that the Show is the very best it can be and the audience goes home buzzing!
“Building up a following takes time, and a lot of hard work, and we believe in looking after our fans. What they want to hear is what’s important, which is why we’ve asked them this year. We had a fantastic response, and we’re hoping they’ll love what we’ve done.”
The current Show features state of the art video screens, lighting and sound systems, talented, industry-respected musicians and dancers, professionally choreographed routines, vibrant stage costumes, fire-performers and Justine’s own uncanny take of the legend that is Tina Turner.
