The legendary groups are combining their talents for The Queens of R&B Tour, a new co-headling concert that will hit 30 cities across the country this summer.

PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that fellow greats MÝA, Total, and 702 will join the lineup as supporting acts.

News of the tour dropped Monday on Sherri Shepherd's self-titled talk show, Sherri. It came after a hilarious video went viral showing Xscape (featuring Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Tamika Scott) and SWV (Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, Tamara “Taj” George and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons) in a makeshift therapy session with television personality Mona Scott-Young.

Scott-Young's Monami Entertainment will produce the tour along with Live Nation.

The tour will kick off on June 27 in Concord, California, at the Toyota Pavilion. Among the 30 stops will be a prestigious venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.

Fans will remember that Xscape and SWV last collaborated on a 2023 Bravo series called SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B, which followed the female musicians — including Scott's sister LaTocha Scott-Bivens) as they attempted to get this tour off the ground. But internal conflicts and a debate over which group would headline prevented the tour from ever manifesting.

Now, the Queens of R&B Tour is finally happening — something the press release calls "a testament to the power of what can be accomplished when women come together with respect, admiration and undeniable talent," as well as "a celebration of passion, power, resilience and unstoppable ability to exceed expectations."

"I’m incredibly honored to be part of this HERstory making moment in R&B music, and to announce this tour during Women’s History Month makes it much more impactful," Scott-Young, 57, tells PEOPLE. "What started as a television series turned into something much greater and I’m proud to be producing this tour, alongside Live Nation, as Xscape and SWV, along with incredible talents 702, TOTAL and MYA, embark on this journey together."

"These ladies have all given their all to R&B music, despite experiencing the ups and downs of life and career, and it is with great pride and excitement that we bring this highly anticipated concert experience to the fans," she added.
