Promoters have announced that the upcoming South African tour by multiple Grammy winner Mary J Blige has been postponed.
METRO FM, Edgars Music Series and Big Concerts have issued a statement saying that the tour, which was set to kick off in Johannesburg on the 12th of May, has been postponed “in order to accommodate a routing change on her world tour.”
However, they added that new tour dates will be released early next week.
“It is unfortunate that the tour has been postponed, and Edgars would like to apologise for any inconvenience… However, both Mary J Blige and keen EMS supporters can still look forward to a fantastic showcase once the dates are established,” says Dineo Sobantu, Events and Sponsorship Manager for Edgars Chain.
“As media partners for the Mary J Blige tour Metro FM welcome the fact that tour is still going to take place later in the year and hope that her fans and listeners have not been too inconvenienced,” said Bob Mabena, acting station manager Metro FM.
Tickets already bought for the May dates will be valid for the new dates.
