The Liberation Tour is a co-headlining concert tour by American recording artists, Mary J.

Background[edit | edit source]

On July 7, 2012, after Blige's concert at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, she told Rolling Stone a 20 date tour in the states was in the works. Tickets for four shows went on sale a few days after.[4]

During a four night stint at Caesars in Atlantic City (June 29, 30 & July 3, 4), Blige gave fans a peek of what was to come on the tour.[5]

During the tour, VIP Nation also offered fans VIP Packages for the tour.[6]
