The Feels So Right Tour was a concert tour in Japan by American recording Pop/R&B singer Whitney Houston. The tour was a month visit that started on January 1, 1990 and ended on January 24, 1990 to coincide with the release of her third album I'm Your Baby Tonight. Houston performed four new songs from the album; "Higher Love", "All the Man That I Need", "Takin' a Chance", and "Who Do You Love".

History[edit]

This sold-out concert tour of Japan, which saw Houston playing 14 dates in 9 cities, was a phenomenal success. Houston performed with her brand new band and included three then-new songs from her up-coming album I'm Your Baby Tonight.[1]

The Japanese fans purchased all tickets to all the shows within hours. Even with the heavy concert schedule, Houston managed to enjoy the pleasures of the Far East nation, from riding its world famous bullet train, which travels up to speeds of 100 miles per hour from Tokyo to Osaka, to tasting the oriental culinary delights like sushi and tempura.[1]

Whitney experienced the full pleasures of Japan. She even did something very Western when on her day off, she and her band members went bowling at the local lanes in Fukuoka. Everyone munched on pizza and had a great time. By the end of the tour, Whitney had picked up many words of Japanese and looked forward to her next voyage to the Far East.[1]
