Legendary singer Tina Turner died earlier this week at the age of 83. The singer was world renowned for her fantastic voice and stage presence.
She regularly took part in tours that took her all over the world. On many occasions, these global tours brought her to Manchester.
Over the course of her career, she played in Manchester on 11 different occasions. The first of these was back in 1974 when she appeared as one half of Ike and Tina Turner at the Palace Theatre.
Her 11th and final show in Manchester came at what was then called the MEN Arena (the AO Arena today). She had four shows within a week as part of her 50th anniversary tour through March and April 2009.
The last ever show in Manchester was April 4 2009. We’ve taken a look at the songs she performed on this last ever Manchester gig according to setlist.fm.
