The Soul Divas Tour is a co-headlining concert tour by American recording artists Dionne Warwick, Natalie Cole and Whitney Houston.[1] The tour was a one-month trek that started on July 7, in Hamburg, Germany. The tour was created and initiated by Felix Scheuerpflug and the team of the Welldone Agency. The exclusive promoter was Tchibo. Tickets were available on Tchibo.de only. Houston who was featured as the main headliner, toured Thailand and China without Cole and Warwick, adding a few more dates throughout July.[2] This marked the first time the three singers embarked on a tour together. Highlights of the tour, included duets with Warwick and Houston, also Cole and Houston duet on Cole's number-one R&B hit "This Will Be".

After Whitney's set, all three ladies would appear together to sing Warwick's worldwide hit, "That's What Friends Are For". At the time of the tour, entertainment media mentioned that the tour would arrive in North America, but was soon postponed until further notice.

Prior to the Soul Divas Tour, Houston toured Russia and Dubai, UAE[3] in February performing four sold-out shows.[4]
