Kansas City, opinion, cocktails, snark.

I was in the nosebleeds at the Sprint Center this evening for the kickoff of Tina Turner’s new tour and it was, by far, the best show I’ve seen yet at the venue. For a woman pushing 70, she shimmied and shook like a teenager across the stage. All the hits were there, the stage is incredibly dynamic and the sound was as good as can be expected. Ms. Turner still has the pipes and a crackling connection with the crowd. The final two numbers, “Simply the Best” and “Proud Mary” brought the house down, and the first encore, “Nutbush City Limits,” was a master class in how to involve a crowd in a classic. If you have a chance, catch the next show.


  1. Hey Sugartits,

    For me the highlight of the show was Thunderdome. I’ve been singing We Don’t Need Another Hero since we got back. It was a fantastic show. And ask the weekday hag what she provided to those poor people incarcerated for the evening!

    Much love.

    P.S. You have to comment on the smoking corral at the Sprint Center.

  2. I simply provided a little much needed diversion for the poor lads in city lockup. I was inspired by Tina.

  3. The experience changed me. I’m no longer going to refer to the Sprint Center as the Salad Bowl. It shall heretofore be known to me as the Thunderdome.

    /all else are castles built in the air
