Tina Turners's long journey from the cotton fields of Nut Bush, Tennessee, to her record breaking concert tours in Europe and America is truly remarkable.  In 1996 at the age of 57, the rock diva embarked on an 18-month 'Wildest Dreams' tour that would be considered  ambitious by performers half her age.  Accolades come from not only from her fans but from her rock and roll contemporaries, many of whom are stars in their own right.  Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Cher, Bryan Adams and Mark Knoffler formerly of Dire Straits, are among her staunchest supporters.  A consummate singer, dancer and performer, Tina endured years of physical and mental abuse at the hands f her former husband and ex partner, Ike Turner, before striking out on her own.  Her come back was extraordinary, she has won six Grammy Awards to date in her solo career.  Tina Turner relates the extraordinary tale to of the woman dubbed the 'Queen of Rock and Roll,' a story of despair, determination and ultimate triumph.
