Surprise! Anita Baker Announces Farewell Concert Series

Published: Monday 1st Jan 2018 by Rashad

In January 2017 longtime fans of Queen of Quiet Storm Anita Baker were devastated when the songstress announced she was set to retire after a 30-year career had seen her deliver some of the genre’s most prized numbers (click here to read). Indeed, despite a 13-year wait since her last LP, 2004’s ‘My Everything,’ she informed followers there was “no new music or tour” in the works.

Well, apparently that was then.

Fast forward to January 1, 2018, Baker – who is set to celebrate her 60th birthday this month – sent fans into a frenzy when she announced she would be the one imparting gifts to them:  a farewell concert series.

As fans of Miss Baker ourselves, we couldn’t be more thrilled that she’s set to hit the road one last time!  With countless gems like ‘Giving You the Best That I Got,’ ‘I Apologize,’ and, of course, ‘Sweet Love,’ we anticipate being in the house with the legions of her diehard fans hearing her croon the hits one last time.

Kicking off in March, no official news on dates and ticket prices yet.  Trust, when they become available, you can count on ThatGrapeJuice to deliver the news!

    • China January 2, 2018

      Anita baker, deserves to be in the Whitney/Celine/Mariah league.

  3. Stephy January 1, 2018

    I thought she retired. I guess she needs money. Good luck Miss Baker. Her voice is one of my all time favorites.

    • Jasmine January 1, 2018

      Just because you tour does not mean you “need money”. Do you think Beyonce “needs money”? No. Artists like her should do a tour because they did not do a proper goodbye / farewell to their fans.

      • Tgj’sTrash January 1, 2018

        I agree jasmine

        IF SHE NEEDED THe money wouldbt come out of retirement all together instead of just doing one run?

      • Glenn January 1, 2018

        What do Beyoncé have to do with this conversation smh

      • Stephy January 1, 2018

        Well her last big world tour was in 2009 – 2010. And she been doing occasional shows from 2011 – 2014. So I guess you’re right. But using Beyonka as an example was pure ignorance. Bey is a superstar with a massive brand, she tours b/c she’s locked in contracts that needs to be met. Also, she’s very much still young and arguably the most relevant entertainer in the world. Anita is an older act from the 1980’s, who haven’t had a hit since 1994 – and haven’t released new material since forever. Also, she announced her “retirement” from the industry a whole ass year ago. So it’s not strange of me to think she needs more money. I mean, she does live a nice lifestyle that probably drains her account. She loves to travel as well. But girlfriend is not a brand like a Bey or MC. So she’s not bringing in royalties for me NOT to propose my original question. Most older legends from her time, mostly tour b/c they either a.) need money to get out of debt/pay bills b.) needs more money to continue to live a certain lifestyle they’ve come accustom to or c.) they just want to tour for the fans. (which is doubt in her case).

      • SMH January 1, 2018

        It’s stupid to think artists only tour “because they need money”. Just because you don’t see an artist all over the place 24/7/365 doesn’t mean they’ve burned through their money and now need to tour. Miss Baker would have announced this tour last year if she “needed money” instead of announcing a retirement. Clearly she’s touring as a proper thank you & goodbye to her fans that were hurt that she was retiring. Saying she “needs money” is just a stupid & ignorant comment to make plain and simple, regardless of whether there’s “contracts” or “brands” involved. Iconic artists like Anita Baker can announce a tour out of the blue because they have legendary catalogs that stand the test of time. Their name and legend status is all they “need” when it comes to touring, its only these current so called “entertainers” that need to tour based on money, their basic and forgettable catalogs won’t have them touring at age 60 like Miss Baker.

      • Stephy January 1, 2018

        @SMH – My comment just went way above your head. I never said “artist tour because they need money” … I was just saying CERTAIN artists (especially older acts like her) still tours because they do need money to keep up their lifestyles. It’s no secret folks like Toni, Mary J and others still have to work bc of money issues. But it was just an innocent thought/question. But Anita is a legend with timeless music (and she can still sing).

      • Jasmine January 1, 2018

        @Stephy You clearly do not know anything about Anita Baker. Her net worth is well over 100 million US dollars. She does not have a lifestyle that would “drain her account.” Your assumptions about older artists only tour is PURE IGNORANCE. I used Beyonce as an example because she too is getting up there in age where she does not have to tour so she is doing it because she wants to (the contracts you talk about are contracts she signs because she want to). Mostly all the older artists that are still relevant enough to tour DO NOT NEED THE MONEY. Do you think Diana Ross, Lionel Richie, or Patti Labelle need money? NO. They do not need a reason to tour nor do they need some b|tchy queen barking about older artists need tour money to live on. Perhaps you live a lifestyle where you need to work to live but if you had the ability to think outside the box you would see that you have a higher purpose in life than just working to live. Try LIVING TO WORK to work for a week and you will get the point! These people make more annual money in royalties than many people save up in a lifetime! #LivingToWork VS #WorkingToLive

      • Stephy January 1, 2018

        @Jasmine: Her net worth on multiple unofficial sites ranges from 80 – 100 million. But those aren’t always the truth, none of those sites are official (like Forbes). Those same sites indicates Mary J with a net worth of 5 – 10 million $’s, even tho it was confirmed that she was in serious debt. Or like Michael Jackson net worth being estimated at 300 million dollars before he died… But in reality, he was literally broke (his estate claiming he was worth only a few thousand dollars in reality – he was being taken care of by concert promoters & record labels). So I don’t take those sites seriously. What I do know is, Miss Baker has NOT produced hits in over a decade, has not produced a hit album in over a decade, barely has any (if not no) endorsement deals, barely tours, doesn’t do much acting (and if she did it’s not anything blockbuster). So, I don’t get how my assumption of her “needing to tour for money” isn’t valid to assume. I’m not saying she’s itching for money indefinitely and IS broke. I’m just guessing – seeing how a woman that announced this huge retirement from the industry a year ago… decides to embark on a mini concert series. That’s all. It wasn’t about shading her or being a “queen” or whatever you claim me to be. And everything you said about music royalties and “living to work”, I already know about. So you preaching to knowledgeable ears, girly. Peace.

      • Travis January 1, 2018

        Royalties check….She isn’t broke nope all them best selling albums and hits….The people here so she is doing a tour before she retires….Anita Baker will never be broke

      • Felicia January 2, 2018

        Well damn who said when u do a fair well concert u broke.

    • dayle January 1, 2018

      Anita Baker owns her catalogue therefore she receives a lot of royalties for her music. She is a songwriter and executive producer for her cd’s and she’s a 8 time Grammy winner.

      • MUSICHEAD January 1, 2018

        Owning 8 Grammys does not contribute to net worth. And owning your masters mean nothing if you’re not selling records. Anita’s net worth is likely somewhere between $5-10 million. Even if she is getting royalties her records aren’t being played very much so I’m sure she’s not making more than $250k per year. And her financial issues have been well documented.

      • Shanie January 1, 2018

        Anita’s net worth is 100 million dollars

      • Jasmine January 1, 2018

        @Stephy and @MusicFatHead You have NO receipts. Thus, your opinions are just queeny negative rants and nothing more. My opinions are supported by the numerous receipts that show Anita’s net worth is 100 million. Period. There are ZERO receipts that indicate Anita needs tour money to live on so GTFOH with your b|tchy negative non-receipt having hating azzzes. If this were a white artist like Billy Joel, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Tom Petty, Phil Collins, Roger Walters, etc (all of whom did 2017 tours) then you cooons would have nothing to say but because Anita is black you think the struggle is real for her financially. You both are running your gums about Anita’s pockets without once ounce of evidence to support your negative so shut the fnck up and learn how to only state opinions that are based on factual evidence. @MusicFatHead are you finished eating that double chemical burger at Burger King with the extra large fries yet? LOL

      • MUSICHEAD January 1, 2018

        @JasMAN Didn’t I drag your masculine looking ass enough in the last thread. U must like getting read. I hope you and your roaches are having a happy new year! Stay warm rodent!

      • Jasmine January 1, 2018

        @MusicFatHead You could not drag me even on a bad day. The only thing you dragged was those legs you waddle around with from Burger King to Burger King. I’ve never have roaches or rodents but now I know you do. You are so bitter and mean for no reason.

      • MUSICHEAD January 1, 2018

        @JasMan I’m bitter and mean? I responded to someone else and you decided to come for me. I think you need to check yourself.

      • Shade January 2, 2018

        @ Jasmine ??? drag that nasty burger King eating bitter f** aka..MusicHead.

      • Electrikblue January 2, 2018

        Musichead is ??? That miserable person calls everything a roach just changed their screen name

      • dayle January 2, 2018

        When you earn awards (Grammys, AMA’s, Soul Train etc.) for your artistry, it just shows that you either had great sales or just a gifted or talented performer which some artists are. Some may have one or all of what I have just mentioned. Also, one last note, Anita Baker is a multi- platinum/gold selling artist.

    • Amazin87 January 1, 2018

      I’m sure she and her financial advisor invested well. She’s had an almost 40 Year career with great success. Enjoy the music and celebrate the artist.

      • Val January 1, 2018

        I think she chose to tour because Tom Joyner asked her to perform on rhe Fantastic Voyage and this allows those that aren’t sailing an opportunity to hear her farewell tour.

    • Guest January 1, 2018

      Shut up, stupid.

    • Deb Williams January 2, 2018

      How many time will she retire?How many times will she retire?

    • greg January 2, 2018

      Anita is ok financially goggle it.!and she wrote all her songs and have the rights and royalties..the Beyonce reference got toke all out of context smh

    • Wafflesmom January 2, 2018

      Born and raised in Detroit. Lived in Grosse Pointe where Anita Baker lives and saw her a few times just out and about. Love her! But it is not a stretch to think that this tour could be about money. Sad to say, she is known for skipping out on paying her bills. Hired a lawyer to help her fight these lawsuits, then HE had to sue her for payment. Just sayin.

      • mark January 2, 2018

        Nitty isn’t dead broke and she isn’t extremely wealthy either, bad investment and money mismanagement along with lawsuits and lawyer bills have dwindled her funds. This tour is both farwell and financial.

    • Jammer Daniels January 2, 2018

      FYI….she retired for recording not from touring but this is a Farewell Tour and money is something has plenty of I sure probably more then me and U. LOL

    • Crissy January 2, 2018

      Jayz had a very public retirement then ultimately “came back”. I think it is safe to say it wasn’t for the coin, but more for the love of music. Sometimes something you love so much just drains you and not until you walk away do you miss it. None of us wake up next to Ms. Baker every morning so we don’t know her financial situation first hand. However, it is insensitive to say it’s solely based on “needing the money” and if it is so be it. Beyoncé doesn’t do free concerts and I think it’s also safe to say she doesn’t need the coins.

    • Tara January 3, 2018

      NEWS FLASH, Don’t we all need money? I know what you meant but it was a negative comment. Why not just be hsppy that she wants to share her talent with us. Stop the crabs in a barrel mentality.

  4. Tgj’sTrash January 1, 2018

    I don’t care If she performs in the Bermuda triangle!! Wherever she goes I will be there

  16. Narmer January 1, 2018

    It will be great to see and hear Anita again. I was at her 1st return after giving birth to the Wolf Trap stage in Vienna VA accompanied by Brother Gerald Albrite. She started out fast and became over exerted. Anita said, “whoo y’all let me catch my breath. We said, “take your time.” We were in the last row of pavilion, but there were sitting in the grass on the hill cheering that cold, windy, rainy night. Anita never left the stage, when she got her stride and she never looked back!!! Sincerely, Ferman

  17. Claretha J. Morrell January 1, 2018

    I’m so excited!!!! I one of her biggest FANS!!! Thank you Anita for “GIVING ME THE BEST THAT YOU GOT” in 2018. Looking forward to you inviting my husband and I back stage!!!! See you in Chicago!!!!
