During an appearance on BET's "106 & Park" on Aug. 31, Mary J. Blige broke the news that she's touring the U.S. this fall. Details are still sketchy and subject to change, but as of right now, the tour's scheduled to kick off Oct. 2 in Atlanta, a day after Mary performs in Mobile, Alabama as part of the BayFest Mobile Music Festival. The tour's opening acts will be Jazmine Sullivan, whose sophomore album, Love Me Back, is due out in October, and Miguel Jontel, whose current single, "All I Want is You," featuring the rapper J.
