Celebrating eleven years impersonating rock royalty Tina Turner, Justine Riddoch is rolling out her ‘Totally Tina’ show on the road, stopping off in Scunthorpe along the way.
Over the last decade, Justin has earned a Lifetime Achievement Award among other prestigious accolades cementing Totally Tina a top spot in the musical tribute world.
Justine admits she has been observing her beloved muse from the start; constantly honing her impersonation with passion and an unrivalled attention to detail, to deliver the most authentic recreation of the rock and roll queen’s live performances.
She’s determined the Show will always be known as ‘Simply The Best’, which is particularly fitting as 2019 was the 30th Anniversary of the much-loved song of the same name, released in 1989.
The cast and crew of Totally Tina are pulling out all the stops this year with the promise of a brand new, custom-made performance featuring a whole host of fresh ideas, coupled with the band’s now famous humour.
The Show is designed to make the audience feel that the legendary performer is right back in front of them, strutting her stuff on the most famous legs in show business.
This year’s production is a heady mix of nostalgia and surprise with all the favourite Tina Turner hits, her best duets, much-loved covers and the odd twist in the tale.
All the songs are enhanced by the customary flourish of sparkling stiletto heels, flamboyant tail feathers, high energy dance routines and musical genius. There’s plenty of audience engagement and post-show ‘meet and greets’ too, making the Show more personal.
“I am so proud of what we have achieved with this production. Having been told on many occasions that I sounded like Tina, I decided to take the plunge and then spent hours familiarising myself with her life story and scrutinising video footage to watch mannerisms and body movements,” said Justine.
“We always add our own personality to the Show each year; the element of surprise keeps things fresh, but my ultimate aim is to remain faithful to a Tina Turner live concert, and bring the best version of this amazing woman; her voice, her passion and even her legs, to her many fans.
“That’s why we love it when people tell us that they go away feeling as though they have seen the real thing.”
Totally Tina will rock into the Scunthorpe’s Plowright Theatre on Saturday 28 March.
