Totally Tina will be coming to Playhouse Whitley Bay on July 23.

Justine Riddoch and her talented cast will be bringing ‘Totally Tina’ to the Playhouse Whitley Bay on Friday, July 23 – which was rescheduled from January due to the pandemic and lockdown.

Fans will be able to enjoy early hits including River Deep – Mountain High, Proud Mary and Nutbush City Limits plus later hits We Don’t Need Another Hero, Simply the Best, What’s Love Got to Do With It, I Don’t Wanna Lose You and When the Heartache is Over.

Justine has got the looks, the moves, the legs, and the voice.

Justine admits she has been observing her beloved muse from the start; constantly honing her homage to the legend herself with passion and an unrivalled attention to detail, to deliver the most authentic recreation of the rock and roll Queen’s live performances.

The cast and crew of Totally Tina say they are pulling out all the stops this year with the promise of a brand new, custom-made performances featuring a whole host of fresh ideas, coupled with the band’s now famous humour.

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.

Justine said: “I am thrilled by the success of this production – we have come so far!

"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.

“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 paying tribute to her career, 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.”

Tickets are from £25.40.
