Mary J. Blige Dates Postponed

A reportedly exhausted Mary J. Blige postponed her mid-June tour of Australia to November.

"Postponing these shows has been an extremely difficult decision for me," she said in a statement.

Promoter Michael Chugg added, "I would never want to pressure an artist to perform, and I would never want to put on a show that will be anything less than the best show the fans will see."

New dates will be announced June 30.
