When Tina last appeared on The Oprah Show, Oprah asked her the one question on everyone's mind. What would it take for her to tour again? At the time, Tina said she wasn't ready. "To go on tour every night—that's a bit much," she said. "There's a high expectation of Tina Turner, and I don't want them to say, 'She can't do it like she used to'...I'll think about [it]."
Three years later, Tina has thought about it, and she's come to Las Vegas to make a special announcement...she's going on one last tour!
The nationwide tour kicks off in Kansas City on October 1, 2008, and tickets are on sale now.
"What really pushed it was when all of the acts of my time went out. ... I thought to myself, 'I want to do it for the people and, I have to say, maybe for myself,'" Tina says.
