Wow the Tina Turner Story was just incredible Cleopatra is amazing both visually and that incredible voice. Because it is a small venue, it has a big impact as you are so close to the performers.
Everyone was up dancing and she connects with the audience. Would love to see again.
Will be back next year.

Incredible, this women is so talented, I saw both her shows, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, what a performer, what a voice

Started on the dot of 17:01 but straightaway had technical issues with the mic (it didn’t work). “Tina” was completely unfazed and, without dimming her smile one iota, she just grabbed another one. Cleopatra (aka “Tina”) really channels Tina. She has the moves, the looks and above all the voice. And what a voice! She rocks the place and totally carries the show! A must see!

Have seen Tina Turner live also the show in London west end and yesterday’s show although on a much smaller budget was as enjoyable the girl as Tina was excellent well worth it

Great voice, great energy and Cleo is clearly a big Tina Turner fan with all the right moves. Very comfortable seats at the venue but that didn't matter as everybody was up on the their feet. Felt like a very personal performance. Only criticism is that it finished too early, I just wanted the party to keep on going. Highly recommended.

If you like Tina Turner songs then this is a show for you. If you do not like Tina Turner songs that much then still go as Cleopatra Higgins has the voice and the performance experience needed to take this show to a different level and could easily be giving a performance like the one this afternoon at any major theatre in the country; take a rare chance to catch a performer of this quality in a small and intimate space like Symposium Hall.
