Tina Turner to whip out 'Mary' at the Super Bowl


ATLANTA (December 14, 1999 8:20 a.m. EST http://www.nandotimes.com) – Tina Turner plans to kick off her world tour with “Proud Mary” during the Super Bowl pregame festivities.

She’ll also do a new cut, “When the Heartache Is Over,” on Jan. 30.

“I can’t go to America without performing ‘Proud Mary,’ of course,” Turner told Hitmakers, a weekly radio industry magazine. “It’s an affair with the fans and I think it’s good for those two songs to be played there, so I’m happy about it. I also really like Atlanta.”

The NFL has yet to announce the halftime lineup.
