Mary J. Blige is the next artist in the Apple Music Concert Series


NEW YORK — Mary J. Blige’s 2022 is going pretty well. Her new album landed in the top 10 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and she was featured at the Super Bowl halftime show. Now she has been asked for a concert like no other.

Blige will host a one-night-only live performance to celebrate his life and music which will be available to stream exclusively on Apple Music in over 165 countries. The concert is scheduled for July 27 at 10 p.m. EDT/7 p.m. PDT.

“The last year of my career in particular has been an exciting journey,” Blige said in a statement. “It’s amazing to take this opportunity to celebrate, reflect and have an intimate evening with my fans through this platform that Apple Music gives me.”

Blige’s Apple Music Live concert will take place at New York’s United Palace Theater in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. Fans in the greater New York area have the option to register for free for the chance to be in the room when it happens.

The concert coincides with the 30th anniversary of her acclaimed debut album “What’s the 411,” and Apple Music Hits will dedicate the entire day to Blige, including exclusive programming, music and interviews featuring key moments from her career.

“What is 411?” — featuring the songs “You Remind Me” and the cover of Rufus and Chaka Khan’s “Sweet Thing” — was named one of Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest albums of all time, reaching No. 271. The album is certified three times platinum, with more than 3 million copies sold.

The digital concert series had its first performance in May with Harry Styles leading the campaign, followed by a live performance from Lil Durk in June.

Blige’s career includes eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards, two Oscar nominations, two Golden Globe nominations and one SAG nomination. Her latest album is “Good Morning Gorgeous” and we saw her on the small screen this year in “Power Book II: Ghost”.
