Veteran singer Tina Turner has revealed plans to tour the US, despite announcing her retirement from performing on the road eight years ago.

The 68-year-old pop legend told TV host Oprah Winfrey the tour would kick off in October in Kansas City.

In 2000 the Grammy-winning singer played a farewell world tour that was supposed to mark the end of her career as a live performer.

Tickets for the tour are due to go on sale on 12 May.

Turner announced her retirement plans during the first concert of her world tour in Zurich.

At the time her spokesman said she was bowing out because "she wants to go out at the top."

Best known for hits such as Simply The Best and What's Love Got To Do With It?, she rose to prominence in the mid-1960s with husband Ike, who died last year.

Their violent relationship, which featured in a film about her life, caused her to leave him in 1975.

Since then she achieved commercial success in both the UK and US.

Mindy, do you have any insight into Tina Turner's finances? I wonder if she's doing this because she's low on cash, or if maybe promoters made her an offer she just couldn't refuse?
