Further details of the album are still to be released, so keep your eyes peeled here for the latest info!

Tina Turner said about of the album’s announcement: “It is a privilege to have our show playing to full houses here in London night after night. I’m so looking forward to the release of our cast album, so we can share the music and also the way the songs tell my story. This was my biggest surprise in the making of the musical – I never realised my songs captured the life I was living.

“I’m turning 80 this year, and it’s a time for looking back. I’ve loved working with my producers, Phyllida, Katori, our creative team and of course this incredible cast led by Adrienne and Kobna. Together they found the love, and I am grateful.”

Playing at the Aldwych Theatre, Tina – The Tina Turner Musicals documents the incredible career of singer Tina Turner. From her humble beginnings in Tennessee to her transformation into the iconic Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, this show is full of emotion, heart and absolute tunes. We guarantee you’ll be singing her songs for weeks afterwards…

Presented in association with Tina herself, directed by Phyllida Lloyd and written by Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, the show has broken all box office records since its arrival in Theatreland last April.

And the good news keeps on rolling (rolling), as the show recently announced that 200,000 new tickets went on sale. So whether you’re yet to see this incredible show, or you want to watch it again for the 200th time, (hey, we aren’t judging), there will be more opportunities to see it.

There’s EVEN more news on the way too, with a new cast for the show’s second year still to be announced. However, Adrienne Warren and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith aren’t going anywhere just yet, as they’re continuing in their roles of Tina and Ike Turner until 13 April 2019.
