Simply the (second) best
An award-winning tribute to the Queen of Rock and Roll comes to the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry on Tuesday, June 7.
Totally Tina celebrates the work of Tina Turner, with a live band, dancers and leading lady Justine Riddoch.
Rather than being a biography, this show focuses on Tina’s live concert career, replicating scenes from various tours over the last 50 years with custom twists and turns created by Justine and her cast.
Justine has been singing professionally for more than 22 years and has worked extensively in theatres and on national TV.
She is also a much sought-after session vocalist for some of the biggest record labels in the UK.
After winning ITV’s Stars in their Eyes as Anastacia in 2002, her tribute show Justine is Anastacia was in great demand and she spent the next six years performing as her around the world.
When Anastacia stopped releasing albums and her popularity waned, it was time to change direction again.
Having been told on many occasions she really sounded like Tina Turner, Justine set herself the challenge to become the closest copy she could be.
And after hours of scrutinising video footage, watching mannerisms and movements, hand making the all important wig, deciding which costumes to copy, listening to patter and hundreds of versions of the same songs from different decades, the band and Justine created Totally Tina.
The show starts at 7.30pm. Call 024 7655 3055 or visit www.belgrade.co.uk/event/totally-tina for more information and to book tickets.
