A tribute show to Tina Turner is coming to Edmonton next month.
Simply the Best, developed by Showtime Australia, will be performed at the Millfield Theatre on Saturday, June 1.
The new show has been designed as an homage to the barrier-breaking music and pioneering stage shows of the great Tina Turner and claims to recreate her electrifying concert experience for both original fans and younger generations.
In the lead role, and taking on arguably one of the most energetic characters in music, is South African-born singer Caroline Borole.
Caroline thanks her extensive experience with other demanding productions such as the Dreamgirls musical and TV talent show The Voice South Africa with giving her the discipline needed to recreate such a raw, powerful presence on stage.
She said: “I’ve done lots of really hard work before but this is definitely a ‘next level’ kind of challenge. Between the massive belting songs and the crazy dancing and the super intense emotion in everything she [Tina Turner] does, she is just the most incredible performer on stage. I appreciate that more now that I’ve had to study and emulate it. She’s the epitome of a super woman!”
Borole and her accompanying international cast of eight, including live band, backing vocalists and high-energy dancers, will be moving at a blistering pace on their first ever UK tour.
Audiences can prepare themselves to hear live performances of all the biggest Tina Turner hits including Simply the Best, What’s Love Got to Do With It, River Deep Mountain High, We Don’t Need Another Hero, Private Dancer, Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits, and more.
