Donna Summer concert chronology

The Wanderer Tour was a 1981 concert tour of the United States by singer Donna Summer.

Many of the dates scheduled were to make up from a planned 1980 tour that was scheduled and then cancelled due in part to Summer's expecting her second child, and her lawsuit against what was by then her former record label, Casablanca.

At first, this tour was going to promote her double album, I'm a Rainbow, that was due to hit stores in the fall of 1981. However her current record label opted not to release the album, and the tour was re-imaged to promote her 1980 release, The Wanderer. At many of the tour stops three songs from The Wanderer were performed, "The Wanderer", "Cold Love", and "I Believe in Jesus".
