R&B star Mary J. Blige has unveiled plans for an extensive world tour in support of her latest MCA album, "No More Drama." North American dates begin Feb. 5 in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and run through a March 6-7 stand in Los Angeles. A 25-date international swing follows, kicking off March 13 in Tokyo and wrapping April 25 in Dublin. A larger North American tour is planned for the summer.

In addition, Blige is confirmed to duet with Marc Anthony on "America the Beautiful" as part of the pre-game festivities for Super Bowl XXXVI, to be held Feb. 3 at the Superdome in New Orleans and broadcast live on Fox. The pair will be backed by the Boston Pops and joined by America's Heroes Chorus, made up of representatives from the five branches of the military based in Louisiana.

"No More Drama" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 in September. The set has sold 1.6 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan, and spawned the single "Family Affair," which spent six weeks at No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100.

"No More Drama" was nominated for a best R&B album Grammy, while "Family Affair" earned a nomination for best female R&B vocal performance.
