Hey guys!!

Toronto tonight was AMAZING! Tina was at her best tonight. With it being closing night in North America, she was having a good time along with everyone else in the audience and the band. One of the best shows that I have seen so far on the tour. I had front row center seats tonight, and Tina was pointing and smiling at me all night long. But the best part of it all was when she was doing her last goodbyes, she walked right over to me and said "

Goodbye Donovan!" I was almost in tears!!! Also, at the very end when she says her goodbye, she usually walks to the backstage area and before she is actually out of sight, she turns and does a last wave as she is walking.

This time, she turned around and looked at the audience for about a good 5 to 10 seconds, and she was about to start crying. It was a moment I will never forget. All I can do is hope that after Europe she will come back to the US. I really hope so!!

Luv, Donovan

Tina Turner was awesome last night! We all wind up in the 9th row dead center besides a bunch of other Tina fanclub members. Shout out to Brandon, Ena, Lee (probably now my best friend after moving over a seat for my friend Linda. Kisses to Elle and Debbie (loved the shots on your camera Deb of you, Elle and Tina, that has to be incredible to have) plus a few others also Sonya from the list who I haven't see in EIGHT years. (WOW)

Lee glad to hear this was your 42 show and 5 more to go! Enjoy tonight and anyone else there!
I loved the entire show and tonite was probably even better than Monday but of course we were closer, LOL.

Loved Nutbush how she hovered right above us in the 9th row. Fun to be that close and dead center. Hugs and kisses Elle for those seats back in 2000 at the same venue, and I know my brother Al came over to give his thanks also. And for all you do for the fanclub. Enjoy the rest of the tour! I know you have a lot ahead of you. Safe trip back to Europe also.Tina rocked the Coliseum like she wasn't sick at all. She was totally outrageous. My brother and his partner loved the show and had a blast and without a doubt my friend from New Orleans had a great time. Long overdue. Linda joined us for the show b/c my partner was ill and took some amazing photos.

My brother tried to take some video with his phone but honestly the sound wasn't great and we've seen some great stuff out there so I will spare you with those. One incredible night on Long Island.

Mention to Pete. Those clips you have, why don't you just toss them up on youtube and try to merge a bunch together. Later once the tour is done and a lot more videos are up there I plan on making a compilation collection of the best stuff! More also in the works of some material past and present fans haven't seen so stay tuned!

Enjoy the tour everyone! Loved seeing the 2 shows I saw and sad that's it for me but will continue to live it through all of you!

Hugs Lea
