Featuring respected singer/songwriter Clive John as Johnny and Amanda Stone as June Carter, the show takes the audience from the 1950s right up to 2002 and all the stops in between.

All the greatest hits are included, along with songs from the latest five decades of the man in black’s career.

Embrace the rhyme and blues of a multi-award winning legend in The Tina Turner Experience on Saturday, October 13.

This fully live energetic show, which features a seven-piece band and professional dancers, charts the life and career of one of the world’s iconic voices and her hits such as Private Dancer, Nutbush City Limits, Proud Mary, River Deep Mountain High, and Let’s Stay Together.
