Foreign Affair: The Farewell Tour (also known as the Foreign Affair World Tour) was the fifth concert tour of American singer, Tina Turner. The tour supported her seventh studio album, Foreign Affair. The tour was Turner's first stadium tour and only reached European countries. Overall, the tour drew in nearly three million spectators—breaking the record for a European tour that was previously set by The Rolling Stones.[1]

The tour is notable as Turner's only tour to not reach North America. Since the tour was considered a farewell tour (at that time), Turner wanted to exclusively tour Europe to thank her fans for supporting her career after she left The Revue.

Background[edit]

The tour was advertised as a "farewell" tour as Turner began to concentrate on potential acting roles.[2] During an interview, Turner stated,[1]

"I've always thought this would be the final one but I must admit I now have mixed feelings. I'm the first woman to fill all these stadiums and the feeling from all those fans night after night was fantastic. I don't want to close that door completely. I'm going away for about a year and when I'm ready to return, I just hope the fans will want whatever I have to offer"

Turner would return to touring in 1993 with her North American tour, "What's Love? Tour"
