Tina Turner is Back with a Autobiography and Musical

Tina Turner is Back with a Autobiography and Musical


I, Tina. In late December, Atria Books announced they will publish Tina Turner’s autobiography. The book will be called Tina Turner: My Love Story. The book release is scheduled for October 2018.

The autobiography is the continuation of the wildly successful “I Tina” in 1986.  The book, co-written with Kurt Loder, led to the blockbuster hit file What’s Love Got to Do With It.

The new autobiography will celebrate Tina Turner’s 60th year in the music industry. The book will disclose a previously unreported “life-threatening illness” Turner had not previously disclosed.

Simon & Schuster will co-release the audio version of the book.  Meanwhile in London Adrienne Warren is starring as Tina Turner in the musical Tina:The Musical. The musical is set to open at the Aldwych Theatre in London in March 2018.
