Blige, who recently finished her heart of the city tour with rapper Jay-Z, plans to head out this fall for another national run to support of her eighth studio album, “Growing Pains.” The Love Soul Tour, which features supporting acts Robin Thicke and newcomer Dave Young, will kick off Sept. 13 in North Charleston, SC, and ends in Concord, Ca in mid October.
