Background[edit]

In May 2003 Sarah released her Middle East oriented album Harem. To promote it and audiovisual project "Harem - A Desert Fantasy" Brightman together with Clear Channel Entertainment decided to create a new tour, that will be differ from previous La Luna World Tour. Promoters wanted to turn show from theater audiences to a more arena-like. Promotion for the tour included lots of billboards and ads in theatrs and corrsponding media because some of Sarah's fans "haven't experienced arena shows very well".
