Tina Turner, 78, appeared in public for the first time in five years and totally stole the show
The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll walked the red carpet recently with her husband, Erwin Bach.
On April 17, 2018, Tina Turner made a rare public appearance at the Aldwych Theatre in London to attend the opening of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, as reported by Closer Weekly.
The production is based on the iconic singer's life, starting from her humble beginnings to becoming one of the most successful artists in music history.
Wearing a black pantsuit and silver shoes for the occasion, Turner just proved that age is just a number. She looked incredible on the red carpet as she walked with her better half of almost five years.
Turner's last red carpet appearance was in 2013 when she attended the Giorgio Armani’s “One Night Only” event in Rome.
The Let's Stay Together singer, who became heavily involved in the production of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, has documented her set visits on her personal social media accounts.
The day of the premiere, Turner posted a photo of the cast on her Instagram account.
'After three years of hard work from our fantastic cast and crew, @tinathemusical makes its World Premiere Performance at The @aldwychtheatre tonight,' she captioned the post.
The proud star, who has sold more concert tickets than any other solo performer in history, added that the production has meant so much to her. She also hoped that all her fans and audiences would enjoy the show.
The BBC News caught up with her after watching in the audience.
"It's difficult to see someone else do what we did for 40 years. I'm a perfectionist, so I look a little bit critically. But when I look and see it done so well, I feel proud," she told the news outlet.
Turner has sold more than 200 million albums and singles worldwide, making her of the world's best-selling artists of all time.
Among the several accolades she has received in her musical career are Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, MTV Music Awards, and Billboard Music Awards.
