This has already been a big year for Mary J. Blige. Not only did she release her newest album Good Morning Gorgeous to acclaim from fans and critics, but she also performed at the Super Bowl, held her first Strength Of A Woman Festival & Summit, released a deluxe edition of the album and that’s not even the half! As she gears up for the second half of 2022, her hot streak continues with the announcement of her Good Morning Gorgeous Tour with opening acts Ella Mai and Queen Naija.
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul is going to Mary Bop on stages from coast to coast starting this September. The tour kicks off in Greensboro, NC on Saturday, September 17th before hitting D.C., Philly, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Brooklyn, Newark and Nashville to name a few of the 23 cities it will stop through. The tour is scheduled to end on Saturday, October 29th in Atlantic City.
Ella Mai and Queen Naija are no strangers to working with Blige. Both artists recently performed at the Strength Of A Woman Festival & Summit in May, so joining her on tour was the natural progression for the R&B starlets.
The Good Morning Gorgeous Tour will be Mary’s first tour since she co-headlined The Royalty Tour with Nas in 2019 and her first headlining tour since her own Strength Of A Woman Tour in 2017. This tour also marks the 25th anniversary of Queen Mary’s very first concert tour as a headliner when she embarked on the Share My World Tour in 2007.
That’s not the only Mary milestone of the year. This July, she’ll commemorate the 30th anniversary of her debut album What’s The 411? but she also has three other albums with big anniversaries in 2022. Share My World turned 25 in April, Growing Pains turns 15 in December and Strength Of A Woman turned 5 in April as well.
Yes, 2022 is Mary J. Blige’s year, and it’s a good time to be a fan because our fave is everywhere.
