THE BRITISH CONNECTION WITH TINA:

The Rolling Stones first brought the Ike and Tina Turner Revue over to England in 1966 and introduced them to the British Audience. Then in 1969, Ike and Tina toured with The Rolling Stones. In fact, it was Tina who taught Mick Jagger how to dance the Popcorn and the Pony.

Even back then, when Tina was still performing with Ike , she loved to sing rock tunes such as HONKY TONK WOMAN, COME TOGETHER and more.

When Tina left Ike she had to start over in her life and her career. With the help of her new manager Roger Davies, she updated her image and rebuilt her career. Davies booked Tina into the Ritz Club in New York to create a buzz. Loyal Fans, and such British Rock Royalty as David Bowie, Keith Richards,Rod Stewart, and more were there to see her. Rod even joined her on stage to sing his hit HOT LEGS. Tina later appeared with Rod at his performance at the Los Angeles Forum, which was televised via satellite to over 40 million people around the world.

Then came another invitation from England. The British Electric Foundation (BEF) ask Tina to sing one song,a classic 1970 Temptations song-BALL OF CONFUSION. Tina enjoyed her first solo success in the UK. The song became a single and was deemed successful, successful enough to get the attention of Capital Records.

Tina was signed to Capital records and recorded her first solo hit LETS STAY TOGETHER with British producers Martyn Ware and Greg Walsh, and became a Top Ten hit and sold a quarter of a million copies. In 1983, she was presented a Silver Disc Award after her show at the Venue in London. LETS STAY TOGETHER was also hailed as 'top dance record of the year' in America, with sales finally topping eight million worldwide.

In 1982 , Tina and her band (without IKE) were once again ask to accompany the Rolling Stones on their sell-out tour. After seeing her at the Ritz, the Rolling Stones invited Tina to sit in and sing a song with Mick Jagger on their Tour. Britain embraced Tina and the Rock Stars Claimed her as one of their own.

In 1985, Tina Turner's records filled the radio and TV stations worldwide and she was on tour. David Bowie, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, and more came to pay their respects and celebrate her long overdue success. Elton John and Tina performed his song THE BITCH IS BACK. Performing with the British Rock Royalty was something Tina and the Brits loved to do. Whenever the occasion presented itself, they joined one another and set the fire. David Bowie once said while performing a number on stage with Tina during her tour,"This is the hottest place in the universe!!!

David Bowie then featured Tina on TONIGHT when he recorded it in Canada in 1985. Both appeared at different times and performed live at each others concerts.

Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits wrote Tina's title track PRIVATE DANCER which was released in 1984, which gave her superstar status in the USA and abroad. Tina received a Grammy for WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT from that CD and began one of many world tours.

Tina Turner was the highest ticket sales for the year 2000, with over eighty thousand people attending her concerts. The next highest sales was for the group N' SYNC which totaled seventy six thousnd. TINA WILL ALWAYS BE THE QUEEN OF ROCK!

Hollie Vest as Tina Turner:
Hollie Vest has thrilled audiences since 1985 with her Tina Turner LiveTtribute - not exactly what one would expect of an artist who strived to be an original singer/song writer. Hollie spent 15 years as a bandleader/singer performing all styles of music and then in 1985, surprised the audience one New Year's Eve by donning Tina Turner's attire and attitude. The audience loved it, and a star was reborn. In 1993, Hollie received the Grand Ball Entertainer Award for her 15 years of performing throughout Southern California. In the same year she was given Best Female R&B "Reel Award" from International Celebrity Images. The year 2000 celebrates 15 years of this Thrilling Live Tribute by Hollie Vest
