Mary J. Blige has announced her Good Morning Gorgeous Tour, her first headlining tour in five years.
Powered by Black Promoters Collective—the visionaries behind Maxwell’s The Night Tour and New Edition’s The Culture Tour—Blige’s 23-city tour begins this September and will include supporting acts, Ella Mai and Queen Naija.
Naija was one of the opening acts for Blige’s Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit this past May while Mai was one of Mary’s special guests during her Mary & Friends set. Not to mention, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul also appeared on Mai’s sophomore album, Heart On My Sleeve, on two separate tracks: “Not Another Love Song” and “Sink or Swim.”
The Good Morning Gorgeous Tour is her first headlining tour in five years. Blige’s last solo tour was her 2017 Strength of a Woman Tour. Two years later, she co-headlined The Royalty Tour alongside Nas.
Aside from celebrating the anniversaries of her debut album, What’s The 411? and her third studio release, Share My World, this year, Blige has been named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2022, was honored with the Icon Award at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, and is nominated for three BET Awards—Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, BET Her, and Best Actress, respectively.
Tickets for the Good Morning Gorgeous Tour go on sale this Friday (June 17) at 10 a.m. local time. See the full tour dates below.
