On Friday, Beyoncé (41) interrupted her performance during a concert on her 'Renaissance World Tour' to remember the late Tina Turner (1939-2023) with the audience present. The legendary singer was a huge source of inspiration for the 41-year-old.
'I just want to take a second to honor Tina Turner,' Beyoncé said in Paris, as reported by industry magazine Variety, among others. The singer went on to say, 'If you're a fan of mine, you're a fan of Tina Turner. I wouldn't be on this stage without Tina Turner.' She feels blessed to have witnessed the magnificence of Turner.
Beyoncé also asked fans to scream so the deceased could feel the love of the audience. The fact that the concert visitors - including stars like Selena Gomez (30), Lenny Kravitz (59), Pharrell Williams (50) and Megan Thee Stallion (28) - loudly complied with Beyoncé's request is evident in excerpts in the social media media, for example on Twitter.Die beiden Tinas in Beyoncés Leben
Almost 20 years ago, Beyoncé paid tribute to Turner in a special way. At the Kennedy Awards ceremony in 2005, the singer stated, 'Every now and then, when I think of inspiration, I think of the two Tinas in my life - my mother, Tina, and of course, the incredible Tina Turner.' Beyoncé will never forget the first Turner performance she saw. She had never seen 'such a strong, combative and fabulous woman'.
Tina Turner recently died in her adopted country of Switzerland at the age of 83. 'It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tina Turner,' read a post on her Instagram account. She has enchanted millions of people around the world 'and inspired the stars of tomorrow'.
For Beyoncé, her tour will now continue to London, where several appearances are planned. This will be followed by three shows in Germany, among others. According to her website, the singer will perform in Cologne on June 15th, in Hamburg on June 21st and in Frankfurt am Main on June 24th. In addition to further European stops, there are also numerous concerts in North America.
