While many people look at Beyonce, Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, and others as the queens of tours, the Queen of Hip-Hop & R&B, Mary J Blige, can’t be denied her own righteous spot as well. Mary has been headlining her own shows since 1998 with 8 tours to date and while they have’nt been glamorous circus themes, 100+ dancers, acrobats hanging from the sky type shows, the shear HEART & SOUL of Mary’s music has been the basis of Mary selling out shows over and over again.
Mary’s last album “Stronger with Each Tour” came out in 2009 and like her past albums many of her fans where expecting a tour to come along with it. No worrys, it appears that Mary is gearing up for her Fall tour now and with that comes a few spot date announcements via www.maryjbligeeveryday.com. For the U.K. fans, you can see Mary J Blige at the O2 in London on November 2nd. Priority tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am. You can get yours here…
And for our U.S. people, Mary will be performing in Atlantic City, NJ at the Borgata Event Center on Friday, October 8th, Bristow, VA Thursday, October 7th, and has just added VA Beach to her line-up with Special Guests El Debarge and Jazmine Sullivan on Sunday, October 3rd at the VA Beach Amphitheatre. Tickets for the VA Beach show goes on sale this Saturday via ticketmaster.
In other MJB news, Mary confirmed earlier this week that she is working on her 10th studio album. In the studio with producer Swizz Beats, the two proclaimed that her next album will be Whats The 411 on another level!!! It makes sense for her to go back to the 411 on her 10th studio album! Are you excited? I am!
