Mary J. Blige to Hit the Road this Summer in Support of ‘Strength of a Woman’

The current queen of Soul and R&B, Mary J. Blige just announced a big new tour in support of her latest album, “Strength of a Woman.”  The North American headline tour kicks off July 30 at the Chicago Theatre and wraps up Sept. 9 with a show in Oakland, Calif., at the Paramount Theatre.  There will also be stops in Atlanta, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Dallas and Las Vegas.  Lalah Hathaway will be the special guest on the tour. In addition to her tour, Blige can also be seen at a number of summer festivals including Essence in New Orleans and the Cincinnati Music Festival.

Mary released her newest and 13th studio album, “Strength of a Woman,” in April via Capital.  The LP includes special guests Kanye West, Missy Elliot, Quavo of Migos and DJ Khaled. “Following a widely publicised divorce, R&B queen Mary J Blige has chosen a telling title for her latest release: this is not an album that seethes or despairs; rather, it grapples with insecurity and ultimately revels in determined power,” a review from The Guardian’s Tara Joshi says. Joshi adds, “It’s not groundbreaking, but Blige’s vocals alone are a reminder of why she remains so important to the genre.”
