Paula Abdul concert chronology

The Under My Spell Tour was a world concert tour by American recording artist Paula Abdul to support her multi-platinum selling album Spellbound.[1] The tour was her first and MTV held a contest for its viewers to name the tour. Abdul's tour was almost canceled before it began due to injuring her leg by catching her heel in a groove of the stage while rehearsing. Paula was going to have to cancel until a Chinese acupuncturist allowed her to walk again.

Paula put 4 million dollars of her own money into the tour and even though she was injured the opening night went on as planned. The outing started on October 26, in Birmingham, Alabama, visiting several cities in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. The tour ended in August 1992 and gross over 60 million in ticket sells.
