Elton John reveals a joint tour with Tina Turner turned into a NIGHTMARE

Elton John reveals in his new book ME that a joint tour with ICON Tina Turner turned into a NIGHTMARE of an idea.

He writes, “The idea of doing a joint tour with Tina Turner in 1997 was a nice idea that quickly turned into a disaster.While it was at the planning stage, she rang me up at home, apparently with the express intention of telling me how awful I was and how I had to change before we could work together. She didn’t like my hair, she didn’t like the colour of my piano, and she didn’t like my clothes.‘You wear too much Versace, and it makes you look fat — you have to wear Armani,’ she announced.

I got off the phone and burst into tears: ‘She sounded like my f*****g mother,’ I wailed. Incredibly, our working relationship got worse.

In rehearsals, Tina wouldn’t address any of the musicians in my band by name — she just pointed and bellowed ‘Hey, you!’ Maybe it was insecurity on her part. She’d been treated appallingly earlier in her career, suffered years and years of being ripped off, beaten up and pushed around.

Maybe that had an effect on how she behaved towards people.That made it obvious the tour wasn’t going to work, although we made up later: she came for dinner and left a big lipstick kiss in the visitors’ book.”
