Emperors Palace is SIMPLY THE BEST this April


13 March 2012


Calling all Tina Turner fans! Be prepared to stand in your seats with Ireland’s Queen of Rock’n’Roll, Rebecca O’Connor, as she entertains Gauteng at the Palace of Dreams in April.

The energetic Irish performer will sport sparkling mini dresses, high stiletto heels, red lipstick, and of course, the infamous wild hair, in support of Tina’s  iconic hits; which include Nutbush City Limits, Private Dancer, When the Heartache Is Over, and of course, Simply the Best!

O’Connor kick-starts her national tour in Cape Town in March, followed by Gauteng from 4-7 April where fans can finally catch Tina’s-double live in-action at Emperors Palace.

A familiar TV personality, O’Connor was voted as the best Tina Turner impersonator by more than 33 million TV viewers through the European show ‘Stars In Their Eyes’. A few years later O’Connor’s performance footage made its way to Tina’s manager, where she received feedback endorsed by the great Rock Goddess herself, stating “Rebecca is so good – she’s scary! If I had her energy today, I’d still be touring”.

Since the age of three O’Connor religiously watched and listened to every Tina DVD, tape and concert possible. She adds “Tina sings with such attitude and feeling, when I perform – I delve into these emotions with the highest levels of energy, to produce the ultimate Tina performance”. 

“I can’t believe it’s been a year since my Gauteng sell-out performance of eight shows! They love the energy and I love them - South Africa has always had a big place in my heart! I look forward to the tour and can’t wait to see Gauteng, and of course, the Palace of Dreams”

Rebecca O’Connor’s Tina Turner tribute forms part of the Emperors Palace, Wish Upon the Palace summer promotion which takes place from February – April. Be careful what you wish for at the Palace – it might just come true!

Tickets for the above show can be booked through the Emperors Palace Box Office on (011) 928 1297/1213 or Computicket or 083 915 8000.
