Mary J. Blige concert chronology

The Mary Show was a music concert tour by American recording R&B singer Mary J. Blige, in support of her multi-platinum album, Mary. The tour started on June 10, 2000 in Los Angeles, California, continuing throughout North America, and ended on August 27 of the same year in Los Angeles.[1]

Background[edit]

Before Mary J. Blige launched her anticipated "Mary Tour" in the summer of 2000, she visited AIDS charities nationwide and presented more than a half a million dollars from the M.A.C Cosmetic's AIDS Fund. As one of the faces of Viva Glam III, M.A.C's sultry lipstick shade made exclusively to raise money for the M.A.C AIDS Fund, Blige made official check presentations to nine charities across the country. To kick off her 33-city "Mary Tour", Blige joined M.A.C President John Demsey in Los Angeles on June 9, 2000 to donate $50,000 to Project Angel Food, a charity that delivered free food to more than 1,200 men, women and children with HIV and AIDS in Los Angeles.[2]
