Toni Braxton concert chronology

The Libra Tour was a concert tour in 2006 by American pop-R&B singer Toni Braxton. The tour, which was in support of her RIAA gold-selling album Libra, kicked off in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on March 10 and continued through mid-summer.[1] Braxton played to sold-out shows across the US, performing in venues such as theaters, instead of arenas. The tour included a selection of songs from the new album, and featured hit songs from Toni Braxton, Secrets, The Heat and More Than a Woman. Toni's sisters, Tamar Braxton and Trina Braxton, joined the tour as background singers.

  • On select dates, as Toni performed one of her signature ballads; she would choose a lucky gentleman to bring on stage, as she sat on his lap and sang. One of the many highlights throughout the show, and a rousing ovation from the crowd.[2]
