THIS is the fifth show that YH has reviewed since the Harlow Playhouse re-opened on September 2nd.
There has been a real relief and joy amongst the audience that they are back watching live entertainment but nowhere was this more apparent than at Typically Tina on Saturday night.
From the very first notes, the audience were up dancing in a joyous celebration of the work of Tina Turner.
What is more, you get two for the price of one. You get the music of Tina Turner but you also get the sheer force of nature that is Karin Bello.
This is a loyal audience and they definitely come for Karin.
As we have said before, Tina Turner is one of those tributes that is very difficult to do, Why? Because of the energy levels. Luckily, the Harlow audience was treated to a woman who lived every number. Not only did she inhabit the role, she inhabited the whole audience.
Each number was treated as the return of an old friend. Yes, fans had played Tina Turners songs over the last eighteen months, they may have watched the Netflix documentary bu the had clearly missed Karin Bello’s version of Private Dancer, Proud Mary, Simply the Best, to name just three.
Whether it was the sixties music such as River Deep, right up the the late eighties, early nineties, each number was performed to the max. Karin was helped by such a tight band that made this such a great concert on its own.
Karin hasn’t lost it. It never went away but she was delighted to be back and so was her audience.
Once again, it was great to see live entertainment at the Harlow Playhouse
