THE JUNE CONCERTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED, TO BE RESCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 2008.

From the promoter: All tickets purchased and issued for the June tour dates will be valid for the re-scheduled shows and strongly suggests fans hold on to their tickets until Monday 30th June when more information is released regarding the rescheduled dates.

The supremely stylish and exceedingly beautiful Mary J Blige is also without doubt one of the great singers of our time. The proof is in the consistent worldwide #1 albums and singles, her 23 Grammy nominations and eight Grammy wins, seven multi-platinum records and over 15 years of equal parts respect and adoration from the public, critics and fellow artists.

Mary J Blige has helped to redefine R&B and inspired a generation of artists who have followed her lead. She has secured her place as one of the world's top urban divas by appealing to older fans with her soul sensibility and maintaining youthful credibility with her hip-hop savvy.

Mary J Blige was born in the Bronx and spent the first few years of her childhood in Georgia before returning to New York with her mother and older sister, settling in the housing projects of Yonkers.

She endured a rough life in Yonkers, NY, one which left her with her fair share of physical and emotional scars but set the foundations in her adult life for her strength of character and savvy disposition, and the type of music which lift spirits, touches lives and bring her heart, soul and truth to all of those who listen.

Mary’s 8th studio album, “Growing Pains” shows Mary pushing herself in ways she never has: especially vocally. There are jazzy inflections, girl group coquettishness, nuanced phrasing -- a full range of tones and textures.

“Growing Pains” comes on the heels of her best-selling anthology “Reflections”. It’s also her first album of new material since “The Breakthrough” debuted at #1 on the US charts and the album’s first single, “Be Without You,” made chart history by holding down the #1 spot on the Billboard “Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums” chart for a record breaking sixteen straight weeks.

On September 9, 2005, Mary J. Blige performed the anthem "One" with U2 for “Shelter from the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast” and again at the 2006 Grammy Awards. The collaboration brought Mary J Bilge back into the spotlight, won her new fans in the world of rock music and re-confirmed her versatility as a performer and her status as an all round outstanding artist.

Mary J Blige is the One. Don’t miss this unprecedented concert event.
