Tina Turner marries Erwin Bach, her longtime boyfriend
Music legend Tina Turner has married her longtime partner, record executive Erwin Bach, in Küsnacht, Switzerland, where they live.
The eight-time Grammy Award-winner, 73, and Bach, 57, married in a small civil ceremony on the banks of Lake Zurich "a few days ago," municipal official Hannes Friess told the European news agency Agence France-Presse.
They plan to have a Buddhist ceremony on Sunday, according to the German-language Swiss weekly Schweiz am Sonntag, which said singers David Bowie and Sade and media mogul Oprah Winfrey will attend. The bride will wear a Giorgio Armani gown, the newspaper added.
The German-language Swiss daily Blick said wedding invitations went out in mid-April. That same month the "Proud Mary" and "What's Love Got to Do with It" singer -- born Anna Mae Bullock and formerly married to the late R&B performer Ike Turner -- gave up her U.S. passport for a Swiss passport.
Bach and Turner have been together for 27 years and have lived in Switzerland since 1995.
