Lisa Fischer tour dates
Lisa Fischer has toured extensively as a solo artist and a backup singer for most of her career. She toured with Luther Vandross for 22 years and has been on every tour with The Rolling Stones since 1989. She's so popular with the Stones' fans that she regularly sings duets with Mick Jagger while on tour, playing a foil for his on-stage theatrics. As a solo artist, Lisa Fisher tour stops are slow-key, stripped-down affairs with her band Grand Baton. The focal point of a Lisa Fischer show is her powerhouse voice with its impressive range. Expect to hear her solo hits, as well as hit songs from the many artists she's toured with over the years in ways that are new but just as amazing as their original arrangements.
