ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Rebecca O’Connor – ‘Simply the Best’ as Tina Turner)

This show is perfectly summed up by living legend Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac stating that “Rebecca is way beyond a tribute act… she is an amazing singer and performer in her own right, I was mesmerised… a night you’ll never forget.”

Or, in the words of Tina Turner herself..” Rebecca is so good, it’s scary” Rebecca O’Connor is the only artist touring in the world that is personally endorsed by the legend.

Ireland’s own International success story, Rebecca O’Connor, is back by popular demand! After sold out shows throughout Europe and the UK over the past 3 years, Rebecca is set to return to Australia, Ireland and The UK with her powerhouse show throughout 2020.

Rebecca cannot wait to bring her new and exciting show, amazing dancers and band to theatres and venues around the globe and onto the Rock the Boat stage.

“It was like a freight train came through Cork and blew the doors off the theatre, it was so powerful and dynamic” says Eibhlin Gleeson, GM of Cork Opera House.

Rebecca O’Connor is the only Irish artist to ever win the prestigious European TV competition ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ hosted by Matthew Kelly, in front of over 33 Million viewers. Rebecca brought her perfect rendition of Tina Turner to life as she wowed the audience. Rebecca continues doing just that, all over the world to packed out houses!

Be prepared to stand in your seats as Rebecca delivers her flawless rendition of Tina Turner’s greatest hits including, Nutbush City Limits, Proud Mary, River Deep, Private Dancer, When the Heartache Is Over, Better Be Good to Me, and of course her anthem, Simply the Best.

Choose Your Cruise are thrilled to welcome back Rebecca and her incredible stage show to her first time on Rock the Boat for 2021’s Super Cruise! We first had the pleasure of seeing her perform on our stage for Cruise N Groove in 2017 and there was not one person sitting in their seat by the end of her show! For more information, visit or call us on 1300 247 371 to join in on the party.
