Anita Baker concert chronology

The Rapture Tour is a concert tour and the first headlining tour by American recording artist Anita Baker in support of her second studio album Rapture (1986). The tour started in mid-March 1986, visiting several cities throughout North America and Europe. In 1987, Baker kicked off a North America second leg trek, which included seven dates in Los Angeles at the Beverly Theatre in January[1], including two and three-night dates in Merrillville, Indiana, New York City[2] and Miami, Florida. The outing included four sold-out shows scheduled in Washington D.C. and three consecutive dates for the second visit in Merrillville, Indiana.

Concert synopsis

The tour consisted of a selection of songs from Baker's 1983 debut, The Songstress and the majority of the Rapture album. For each performance, Baker would perform songs from both albums, and also include a song from other artists. For example, she performed "You've Changed" by Sarah Vaughan for one show, and Van Morrison's "Moondance" for another. She performed several shows throughout the week in Los Angeles, with gospel/R&B group the Perri Sisters joining as background vocals and toured with Baker for the remainder of the tour.[3]
