It's nearly three decades since Tina Turner starred alongside Mel Gibson in Mad Max.
And as she approaches her 70th birthday than what better way to show she's still got what it takes than to pull on her old costume.
Tina appeared onstage at Madison Square Gardens in New York last night in a modern interpretation of her chainmail outfit in the iconic Eighties film.

And although this wasn't the original outfit it certainly showed off the 69-year-old's age-defying body to best effect.
The lurex costume showed slightly less of Tina's chest than the original, which she wore in the 1985 film Beyond Thunderdome.
Singer Tina belted her way through the concert in a series of fabulous outfits.

These included a short red sparkling mini dress with a plunging neckline, and a long red gown which revealed her still-shapely pins.
Four decades and 70 millions records after Tina found fame she is still working hard.
Last night's performance was part of a tour which will see her playing arenas across Europe and North America until April next year.
