From its conception 20 years ago, this incredibly authentic show captures the image, the stage presence, the legs and most importantly the voice of this great rock legend. Julia in a recent interview commented… ‘I have always had a love for Rock Music and Tina has been one of my idols for over 20 years, she is one of the few tribute characters that I have yet to meet in person and I think Tina’s life story is simply inspiring. I have built my show around Tina’s sensational live performances, with all the music being individually produced to capture the ‘energy and beat’ of a Live Tina concert, and it certainly adds an extra layer to my performance.
