Seventies disco queen Donna Summer will embark on a North American tour dubbed the “Stamp Your Feet Tour” to promote her brand new album “Crayons.” Her tour kicks off July 5 in Vienna, VA and winds down on August 31 in Prior Lake, MN. The 29 concert trek includes four two night stands at casinos.
“Crayons,” Summer’s first album of all new studio material in 17 years, debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart making it Summer’s highest debuting album since 1983’s “She Works Hard For The Money.”
Adding to her list of accomplishments is the recent success, “I’m A Fire,” the first single from “Crayons,” which rose to #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Charts making it her 13th #1 single to top the club charts and her 19th #1 charting single across all charts. It was also her first #1 hit in almost 10 years.
“Stamp Your Feet,” her second single, has risen to #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Charts making it her 14th #1 single to top the club charts and her 20th #1 charting single across all charts.
