UPDATE: Mary J. Blige and Nas have extended their co-headlining summer tour with five new U.S. dates. The duo will now perform August 28th in Brooklyn; August 29th in Baltimore, Maryland; September 8th in Newark, New Jersey; September 12th in Indianapolis, Indiana; and September 17th in Los Angeles.

General tickets for the newly added shows go on sale starting Friday, June 28th at 10 a.m. local time via Live Nation. A Citi card pre-sale runs from Tuesday, June 25th at 10 a.m. local time through Thursday, June 27th at 10 p.m. local time.

Mary J. Blige and Nas will hit the road for the first time together this summer for a 22-date run. The tour begins July 11th in West Palm Beach, Florida.

While it’s their first tour, the two have teamed up in the past, including 1997’s “Love is All We Need” from her third album Share My World, and “Reach Out” off Nas’ 2012 album Life is Good. In 2013, Blige called Nas a “prophet. He’s always been the person with the message. He’s just always been a great person. He’s very into what he is doing. He has a lot of integrity and his life shows that.”

It’s the first full tour for Blige since her Strength of a Woman tour in 2017. Nas has been touring heavily, including a triumphant Red Rock show last year.
