Brandy concert chronology

The Human World Tour is the second solo concert tour by American recording artist, Brandy. Often acknowledged as the Just Human Tour, the outing supported her fifth studio album, Human. The tour was the singer's first concert tour in nearly ten years and was well received by the public and critics. The tour primarily visited North America and Europe, with a few dates in Asia.

Background[edit]

While promoting her recent album, Brandy mentioned in several interviews her hope to tour the album. She felt enthusastic about returning to the stage and performing for a huge audience. She also mentioned how she wanted to return overseas. During the Fall of 2008, Brandy embarked on a small promotional tour, performing mostly at music festivals. The tour began early in 2009 and ran through to the summer. Taking a cue from the BET special, "Just Human", the singer wanted to perform intimate shows to allow the audience to connect with her. The singer chose to perform in concert hall, theatres and nightclubs versus the usual sports arena. The main goal of the show was to be simplistic and draw a connection to the singer and the audience. During the tour, Brandy performed her hits from previous albums along with a few selections from Human.
