In recent months Mary J. Blige has been developing new tunes, shining in her videos and surprising fans with her collaboration, "Love Yourself" with Kanye West. Now, the multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning artist has announced a tour to share the new, critically celebrated album "Strength of a Woman" which dropped on April 28th.
The tour kicks off Sunday, July 30th at the Chicago Theater. The multi-city trek will feature stops in major cities throughout the US including New York's MSG Theater and LA's Greek Theater — check the full listing below.
Featuring production by DJ Camper, Bam, Hit-Boy, and KAYTRANADA, the new album also features collaborations with Quavo (of Migos), DJ Khaled, Missy Elliot — we already mentioned "Love Yourself", her surprise track with Kanye which is the latest single to be shared from "Strength of a Woman".
Tickets for the tour go on-sale to the general public beginning Friday, May 19th at 10am local time. Fan Club, VIP and Pandora Premium pre-sale will go on-sale on May 17th at 10am local time. As the official presale credit card for Mary J. Blige's "Strength of a Woman Tour", Citi® cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Wednesday, May 17th at 12pm local time through Citi's Private Pass® program.
Having won GRAMMYs in R'n'B, Hip Hop and Gospel categories, and with the new album reflecting a true breadth of vision from an artist who appears to excel in every new step of her career, the multi-date tour will most likely be covering some artistic ground.
