TINA Simply The Best To Resume PostponedNZ Tour This Month

Showtime Australia, the promoters of TINA Simply the Best are proud to confirm that the production will proceed with its rescheduled New Zealand show dates commencing this October.

The cast touched town in New Zealand in early September and have now completed their 14 day quarantine.

The show’s original 13-stop tour launched in Kerikeri on March 16th earlier this year but was abruptly shut down by producers just two days later due to the ever-worsening COVID-19 situation.

“It was devastating to lose the tour after so much effort had already been invested – most of our tours take 12-18 months of preparation and planning before we even get to show day - but safety had to be the priority and seeing how quickly things escalated we can’t help but feel lucky that we managed to get everyone home safe and sound at such a chaotic time,” said Showtime Australia CEO Johnny Van Grinsven. 

Venues were quick to reschedule the remaining shows to October and November, still keen to host the eagerly-awaited production and confident that pandemic restrictions will be minimal by that time.

The dynamic, high-energy show will provide New Zealanders with a much-needed opportunity to venture out and enjoy some quality live music after six months of forced hibernation for the live entertainment industry.

Audiences will be encouraged to dance and sing along to live performances of all the soulful rock and RnB hits that made Tina Turner a superstar, including Simply the Best, What’s Love Got To Do With It, River Deep Mountain High, Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits, We Don’t Need Another Hero, What You Get is What You See, Private Dancer and more.

Tickets are on sale now from the venue box offices or further information is available at All tickets purchased for a postponed March 2020 performance will be honoured for the rescheduled performance date at the same venue.
