Ask Tina what love’s got to do with it

            The Canada-wide PTSD Awareness Tour—Hope Beyond Thunderdome 2016—brings Luisa Marshall as Tina Turner (and more) to the Boycaygeon Legion, Friday June 17.

            Luisa is the World Rock N Roll Tribute Artist Champion, and has been

featured on the Ellen Degeneres show, where she received a 25-second standing ovation after being mistaken for the real Tina Turner. (Look her up on youtube if you don’t believe me -ed.)

            Years ago, when Luisa toured before international troupes in Bosnia, Sarajevo, Israel and Egypt, her most requested song was Tina Turner’s hit, We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome). She realized Thunderdome was a metaphor of the state these young soldiers were in, and that they needed hope. And thus, this show was born to raise hope—and money for veterans.

            Admission is $25, with $5 to go to the Veterans Transition Network to help Canadian veterans transition back into Canadian society after their service, and to deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (vtncanada.org).

            Luisa brings much more than Tina to this multi-diva performance, which may include songs from her other favourite divas, like Shania Twain, Etta James, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and Donna Summer.

            Lots of crowd interaction and entertainment is promised in this intimate solo show.

            Tickets are available at the Legion, or online at brownpapertickets.com.
