Anita Live! was a concert tour by American recording artist Anita Baker. After taking an eight-year hiatus from touring to spend more time with her family, in 2002 Baker decided to perform again.[1][2] The itinerary included a few dates in the fall, which eventually led to a three-year outing in North America, from 2002 to 2004.[3] While touring in 2003, Baker recorded songs for a new album, My Everything released September 7, 2004. On select dates in 2004, she performed a few tracks from the album.
