Tina Turner fans are in for a real treat as the top tribute show Totally Tina is coming to Chesterfield’s Winding Wheel on Thursday, October 1.

Totally Tina is an award-winning musical homage to the queen of rock and roll, Tina Turner.

It is currently touring UK theatres in a full production version with live band, dancers and leading lady Justine Riddoch.

Rather than being a biography, this show focuses on Tina’s live concert career, replicating scenes from various tours over the last 50 years with twists and turns created by Justine and her cast.

Justine has been singing professionally for over 22 years now and has worked extensively in theatres and on national TV, she is also a much sought-after session vocalist for some of the biggest record labels in the UK.

In her early career she could be seen treading the familiar cabaret scene as a dynamic vocalist and could boast knowing over 5,000 songs, becoming a human jukebox at venues.

Having been told on many occasions she really sounded like Tina Turner, Justine set herself the challenge to become the closest copy she could be. But this was going to take some transformation. After hours of scrutinising video footage, watching mannerisms and movements, hand making the all important wig, deciding which costumes to copy, listening to patter and hundreds of versions of the same songs from different decades, the band and Justine created Totally Tina.

The show at the Winding Wheel in Chesterfield starts at 7.30pm.
