Tina in New Zealand April, 1997
Bomb scare in New Zealand.
After successfully touring New Zealand with her last feat, Turner returned to an expanded tour in the region. The leg proved to be a success for Turner as dates quickly sold out. However, during her concert in Wellington, New Zealand, (April 9/10) Turner was removed from the stage and the building was later evacuated by local police due to a possible bomb at the venue. After a full sweep of the building, Turner resumed the concert nearly three hours later. The same incident happened in Palmerston North.(April 15/16)
