Audiences are told to expect a night of high energy, feel-good rock-and-roll featuring Tina’s greatest hits performed by the amazing vocal talent of Elesha Paul Moses (Whitney – Queen Of The Night, The Voice, X Factor) supported by a full live band.

Elesha Paul Moses as Tina Turner

Elisha Paul Moses spoke to Northern Life back in 2019 to give readers a little insight into what it is like to portray such a legend as Tina Turner. Now, as live theatre performances return after a long absence, Elesha says: “I am so excited to be back on the road and cannot wait. I love performing as Tina Turner and this is just such a brilliant show that truly celebrates her incredible music and career. It truly is an honour to be the lead in a show that is focused on such a musical icon and to travel all over the UK taking that music to people who want to have a great night out is fantastic.

What’s Love Got To Do With It? is quite simply about having a good night out with your friends and enjoying life so get ready to party!”
