After dating for 27 years, Tina Turner, age 73, and German music executive Erwin Bach, age 57, are married. They were married in a small civil ceremony but will celebrate the wedding this weekend with a larger guest list of 120. Among those who will be joining them are David Bowie, Oprah Winfrey, and Sade. The event will take place at Tina Turner's home in Switzerland. She has lived in Zurich, Switzerland with Erwin Bach since 1995. Earlier this year she renounced her US citizenship to become an official citizen of Switzerland.
Tina Turner was first married to Ike Turner from 1962 through 1978. The pair collaborated on groundbreaking fusions of soul and rock music and presented one of the most celebrated live acts of all time. Through a book I, Tina and a film What's Love Got To Do With It, Tina Turner described the abusive relationship with Ike Turner. As a solo artist Tina Turner has three top 10 charting platinum certified albums and six top 10 pop hit singles.
