MARY J. BLIGE (article first published : 2007-07-22)

Following the postponement of Mary J Blige’s South African tour, METRO FM, Edgars Music Series and Big Concerts have announced new confirmed dates for October this year.

The new dates will see the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, kicking off in Johannesburg (October 18), before heading to Durban (October 19), followed by a final performance in Cape Town (October 21).

The tour which was set to kick off in Johannesburg on May 12 was postponed in order to accommodate a routing change on her world tour. Tickets already bought for the May dates are valid for the new dates.

The South African media described Mary J Blige as having a “smouldering stage presence” during her April 2000 concerts which saw her performing to 48,000 ecstatic fans countrywide. Critics and fans alike will be floored by her powerful combination of modern R&B with an edgy rap, and electrifying live performances when she performs in South Africa in October.

Mary J. Blige will perform at Westridge Park Stadium on October 19. Tickets range from R160 to R280. Book at Computicket.
