Have you ever tried to explain an amazing event to someone? You end up saying, "Well, you just had to be there."
That's how I feel about the Tina Turner Concert. We saw Tina (from the eighth row!--Thanks Amway Global!) on Monday at the Allstate Arena. Without spoiling it for those who will be catching her tour around the country, and the world, here are some pictures and videos.
Tina knows how to put on a show. Theatrics were high on Monday, with the spectacular sets changing almost as often as Tina's outfits.

Look at those gams!
More than keeping up with her dancers.
