She’s then bound for Europe for the entire month of April – starting in Denmark and working her way toward the U.K.

Blige also has plans for a summer U.S. tour but details are still being worked out.

“Going on tour and performing live is just as important to me as going into the studio and making an album,” Blige said. “Giving my fans a live Mary show is not only for them, but for me. Having them there to cheer me on is what doing a tour is all about.”

In addition to her concert schedule, Blige will perform at Super Bowl XXXVI on February 3 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. She’ll join Marc Anthony during the pre-game show, prior to Mariah Carey singing of the national anthem.

Blige and Anthony will be accompanied by the America’s Heroes Chorus – made up of Louisiana reps from police, fire, postal and all five branches of the military – as they sing “America The Beautiful.”

Last year, Blige joined Britney Spears, Nelly, Aerosmith and *NSYNC in the halftime show production.

Blige’s fifth album, No More Drama, has earned her Grammy nominations for best female R&B performance as well as best R&B album. The disc includes collaborations with Eve, Hakeem, Missy Elliott, The Neptunes, Rockwilder and Lenny Kravitz.
