Justine Riddoch who portrays Tina Turner in the Totally TINA Tribute Show spoke to Gary Walker ahead of their upcoming show in the Beck Theatre in Hayes on Thursday 24th March.
Totally TINA is an award-winning tribute to the Queen of Rock and Roll, Tina Turner; the show was given the “Official UK number one” honour by the Agents Association of Great Britain. The group headlined the 2015 Glastonbudget Festival in May last year (the biggest tribute festival of the year).
Since then the group have been touring the UK theatres in a full production version with a live band and dancers. The show focuses on Tina’s live concert career, replicating scenes from various tours over the last 50 years with custom twists and turns created by Justine and her cast.
Justine’s first big venture into tribute acts took place in 2002 when she appeared on ITV’s “Stars in their eyes” as Anastasia. It wasn’t until 2008 when she was told that she sounded like Tina Turner that Justine began to transform herself into a tribute act to the iconic singer.
