The undisputed Queen of Hop Hip Soul is hitting the road later this year. Mary J. Blige will embark on the “Good Morning Gorgeous Tour” presented by Hologic in partnership with The Black Promoters Collective.
“Mary J. Blige has been one of a select handful of artists at the top of our desired list to partner with since the initial construction of The BPC,” states Shelby Joyner, the Co-Founder/President of Black Promoters Collective.
Joyner adds, “Having her support in our mission so early in the process is a testament to the hard work we have put in to bring superior cultural experiences powered by black business to the masses. We firmly believe this is a match made in heaven and are honored to partner with the Queen.”
Mary J. Blige recruited fellow R&B vocalists Ella Mai and Queen Naija to serve as opening acts for the “Good Morning Gorgeous Tour.” Ella Mai broke out with her “Boo’d Up” single which eventually reached 7-time Platinum status. Queen Naija earned Platinum plaques for “Medicine,” “Karma,” and “Butterflies.”
General public tickets for Blige’s “Good Morning Gorgeous Tour” go on sale on June 17 at 10 am local time. Presale tickets will become available beginning today (June 15) for American Express Card Members at 10 am local time through June 16 at 10 pm local time.
