Tina Turner Experience comes to Southend in December with a homegrown leading lady and cast


The Tina Turner Experience is making it’s way to the Palace Theatre in Westcliff on the 15th of December. For the show’s star, Julie Nevada and 5 of the dancers, it’s quite a homecoming!

Julie, who is portraying Tina Turner is one of the world’s leading Tina Turner impersonators – and a Southend girl!

Recognised as a national and international artiste, she has been performing since she was 15 and has appeared in many West End shows such as Annie, The Sound of Music and Bugsy Malone.

You can watch the trailer below:

Her sensational vocals are backed by a 7 piece live band, complete with backing singers and 4 dancers – who are also from Southend!

Included in the show are some of Tina Turner’s biggest hits like Private Dancer, Nutbush City Limits, Proud Mary, River Deep Mountain and ‘Simply The Best’, all sure to have you singing along and dancing in the aisles.

With a full light show, video visuals of Tina’s life, costume changes and outstanding performances, this is surely not to be missed.
