IKE TURNER - 01/08/2005 - Gibson Tent, CES Expo - Las Vegas, NV
The legendary Ike Turner performed on Sat. January 8, 2005, at the Gibson Tent at the CES Expo (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, NV. Since doing the CES shows each January, Gibson has had private parties that feature the finest in classic music entertainment. This particular performance was for Les Paul's 90th birthday (albeit, a few months early). No matter what one might think of Ike, the person, due to his never-ending reputation of being overbearing or a wife-beater, his talent as a writer and performer could not be denied as he rocked the tent down. A note to mention though - his featured female lead vocalist did bear an uncanny resemblance to Tina. One can only wonder.
