Tina Live in Europe is the first live album by Tina Turner and was released in 1988.


The album is compiled of live performances made between 1985 and 1987, the majority of which are from Turner's Break Every Rule Tour but also from the 1985 Private Dancer Tour, as well as the 1986 Tina Turner: Break Every Rule HBO special recorded in London at the Camden Palace (now Koko), masquerading as Le Club Zero in Paris, also released on video. The double album reached #8 in the UK Albums Chart. In 1989 the album won a Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

The double CD version of Tina: Live in Europe includes four bonus songs not featured on the original double vinyl album. Certain limited editions of the double LP included a bonus one-sided 7" single[2] or CD single[3] featuring an exclusive "Tender Remix" of "Two People," mixed by Ben Liebrand.

Single releases[edit]

Five singles were released from Tina: Live In Europe; "Nutbush City Limits", a cover of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love, "Tonight" with David Bowie, "A Change Is Gonna Come" and "634-5789" with Robert Cray, the most successful being "Addicted to Love" which has since become a mainstay in Turner's live repertoire and was later included on the European editions of her 1991 hits compilation Simply the Best.
