This Week in History
On April 12, 2000, two living legends took the stage at Philips Arena. Joined by special guest Lionel Richie, Tina Turner proved why she truly is a rock a legend. At the age of 60 and with over 40 years of performing and producing hits in the music business, Tina still knew how to put on a show that would surprise and delight her fans. Billed as her farewell tour, Ms. Turner’s “Twenty-Four Seven Millennium Tour” included material from her new album, Twenty-Four Seven, as well as some of her greatest hits. Her modern looking stage morphed into a volcano like shape that split to reveal Tina herself singing “I heard it through the grapevine”, with a red flame in the background. The highest grossing tour in North America in 2000 also featured special guest Lionel Richie, singing his bevy of hits including songs from his new album Renaissance.
