Both D’angelo and Mary J Blige performed at the Essence Music Festival, and now are teaming up for the Liberation Tour, which the two will be co-headlining.
Four dates have been announced so far, MJB says there will be 20 dates. The first announced date of the tour is Aug. 18 in Virginia Beach, and tickets are currently on sale through Live Nation.
For D’Angelo, the co-headlining tour marks another step in his comeback following a long hiatus. He played his first U.S. show in over a decade when he surprised Bonnaroo last month, impressed everyone at the BET Awards, and after performing at Essence Fest on Friday night, the singer is booked for Jay-Z’s inaugural Made in America festival in September.
Meanwhile, Blige is coming off of the 2011 release of her 10th studio album, “My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act 1).” In 2008, Blige co-headlined the Heart of the City Tour with Jay-Z.
