If you know anything about R&B music, you’ll know that an “angry” or hurt Mary J. Blige is the best version of her that you’ll ever find. We’ve all heard of the happenings in her life going on right now, BUT as tumultuous as that situation may be, it’s created one of her best bodies of work in the most recent years.
2017 saw the release of her newest studio album, “Strength Of A Woman”, which went straight to the top of the charts, so what’s next for any sensible act? You guessed it, to hit the road and keep the momentum going with a full on tour. If you remember, she was on the King + Queen of Hearts Tour at the end of last year with fellow R&B crooner Maxwell, but this time around it’s totally ladies night.
The “Strength of A Woman Live” Tour will be a worldwide tour that kicks off July 1st at a place that’s all too familiar to MJB, more like home, the Essence Music Fest. For two months straight, she’ll be out on the road, but it won’t be a lonely one, as she’s bringing another equally talented, soulful sister along for the ride. Ms. Lalah Hathaway will be the supporting act once the tour train leaves the station.
If you’re interested in snagging some tickets to this show, presales start Wednesday, May 17th at 10 AM on Ticketmaster, while regular general tickets hit the market on Friday, May 19th.
