1982 SOMEWHERE OVER CHINA/HOMECOMING TOUR

1982 brought another tour and another new album. The Somewhere Over China tour began in March after a February run at Caesars in Lake Tahoe. The tour took Jimmy throughout the south and the west coast and even a show in Papeete, Tahiti, which is likely the show Jimmy talks about when he describes his idea behind the song “One Particular Harbour.” After another June run in Lake Tahoe, the summer tour featured Bonnie Raitt and Jimmy touring together. In September Jimmy was part of the 1st Annual US Festival in California which saw him play to thousands of fans on Sunday afternoon in 110 degree weather. The Fall brought the Homecoming tour through college campuses and the Jamaica World Music Festival in Montego Bay in November. Check out all the 1982 tour dates we’ve uncovered below!
