KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Rock singer Tina Turner says she is excited to officially begin her "Tina Live Tour" in Kansas City, Mo.

The "Queen of Rock 'n' Roll" said when she steps on stage at the Sprint Center at the sold-out start of her new North American tour, she will be returning to a place where she used to be a regular performer, The Kansas City Star reported Saturday.

"I've been away from America -- home -- for at least a good 12 years. I have some memories of certain towns and when we started to think about where to start," she said regarding Wednesday's performance. "Kansas City and St. Louis were areas I played a lot, a lot, when I was here."

Turner, whose public efforts during the last few years have been focused in Europe, said those who show up for her first tour show are in for a treat.

"All the songs I think people want to hear are there, but with different choreography," she told the Star. "I think the costumes are fantastic."
