The star-studded crowd saw the incredible new musical based on the true story of legendary singer-songwriter Tina Turner. From her humble beginnings to becoming the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, this musical shows that she didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. Laced with Tina’s greatest hits, it’s a 2-hour-and-45-minute party that’ll knock your socks off.
