The Tina Turner Musical is rollin’ into Australia next year

Coming to Sydney is May 2023, TINA – The Tina Turner Musical is a celebration of the multi-Grammy award winners resilience and triumph over adversity.

Leave your good job in the city (just for a few days) to see one of the biggest musical icons of our time honoured in her own musical. TINA – The Tina Turner Musical is rollin’ into Australia next year and while at this stage it will only be showing in Sydney, this is one worth travelling for.  

Produced by TEG DAINTY in special collaboration with Stage Entertainment, Tali Pelman and Tina Turner, the musical reveals a comeback story like no other, of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race to become the global Queen of Rock n’ Roll. TINA – The Tina Turner Musical is a celebration of resilience and an inspiration of triumph over adversity.  

Tina herself has addressed the announcement saying, “Hello Australia! I am so excited to be announcing that Tina – The Tina Turner Musical will be opening in Sydney next year.

“Australia has always shared abundant love with me, going back to my early concerts in the late 70’s through the uplifting partnership with the National Rugby League. It is very special for me that we will be reunited. 

“The joy, passion and message of resilience in my musical is so important now as ever. Thank you from the bottom my heart for welcoming me with open arms once again.”

Written by Tony Award nominee and Pulitzer Prize winner Katori Hall with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins, TINA – The Tina Turner Musical is directed by Tony Award nominee Phyllida Lloyd with choreography by Tony Award nominee Anthony van Laast.

This new musical based on the life of legendary artist Tina Turner and presented in association with Tina Turner herself, received its world premiere in April 2018 in London, where it opened to five-star reviews and has broken box office records at the Aldwych Theatre.
 
One of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, Tina Turner has won 12 Grammy Awards and her live shows have been seen by millions, with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in music history.

When she was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in October, 2021, Tina Turner became one of only three women in the institution’s history to be inducted twice (she was initially inducted in 1991, alongside Ike Turner).

Tina – The Tina Turner Musical will show at the Theatre Royal Sydney in May 2023.
