The Queen of Hip-Hop will be back on the road this fall. Mary J. Blige will return to the tour bus for a brief excursion through the U.S. between October and November. 12 dates are scheduled on the run, and several will also feature support from special guest Tamar Braxton.
The tour will officially launch on October 30 at the James Brown Arena in Augusta, Georgia. It will primarily hit southern venues, including stops in Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida and South Carolina, before heading to the Northeast for shows in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. As of now, the tour wraps on November 15 at The Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. 12 stops in total are scheduled over the two-week affair.
Blige will travel across the country in support of My Life II…The Journey Continues (Act 2), which was released earlier this year. Prior to her U.S. jaunt she’ll make a small run through Oceania to wind down her “London Sessions” Tour, which has five more stops remaining between Australia and New Zealand. The U.S tour dates are Blige’s first since concluding her “Liberation” Tour in September of 2012.
Tickets for all 12 shows are now on sale via Ticketmaster. View the complete tour itinerary below:
