Tina Turner concert chronology

Private Dancer Tour is a 1985 concert tour by the American singer Tina Turner. In conjunction with her multi-platinum selling album Private Dancer, the tour helped to establish Turner as a major solo artist and live performer and is often considered one of the best comebacks in music history.

The 180-date tour encompassed Europe, North America, Australia and Asia. Turner also played a show in Budapest, the only show of the tour behind the Iron Curtain.

The concerts received additional accolades, receiving an "Most Creative Tour Package Award" and "Comeback Tour Of The Year Award" from Pollstar Awards.[1]
