Ike and Tina Turner: The Inventor and Queen of Rock ‘N’ Roll

Tuesday, 2 April

Ike Turner very well may have invented rock ‘n’ roll; Tina Turner is one of the most electrifying entertainers to ever take the stage. Together, the pair ascended to icon status through the music they made together. But the couple’s road to the top was anything but smooth. It was rough and violent. Ike Turner, for all of his talent as a musician, was abusive and heavily addicted to cocaine, and in the end did everything he could to bring his wife down with him. This is the story of the couple's rise, Ike’s ultimate demise, and Tina’s triumph.
