Mary J. Blige Announces ‘Strength of a Woman Live’ Tour

Hot off the release of her latest album, Strength of a Woman, Mary J. Blige is hitting the road.

Featuring Lala Hathaway, the “Strength of a Woman Live” tour is set to kick off July 1 at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. From there, the jaunt will continue through Atlantic City and Philadelphia, before heading overseas.

After European stops in Holland, Switzerland, Italy, and France, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul returns to the U.S. for a few more dates before bringing the run to a close in Buffalo on Sept. 9.

I'm so excited to announce the Strength Of A Woman Tour with special guest @lalahhathaway #strengthofawoman #LoveYourself

“Strength of a Woman Live” follows “King + Queen of Hearts,” Mary’s 2016 co-headlining trek with Maxwell.

The 34-date tour comes in support of Strength of a Woman, which opened at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. Released last month, the album features Kanye West, Quavo, Missy Elliott, and DJ Khaled.
