Can get enough of R. Kelly?
Worry not, because the R&B pioneer is taking his ‘Buffet’ on the road!
The controversial King of R&B has announced a 40-city tour of the US in support of his 12th studio album, ‘The Buffet.’
Adapting to today’s climate of putting touring at the forefront regardless of sales, the Pied Piper is clearly undeterred by the poor performance of the project. Released last December, the set debuted at #16 with sales of 39,000 – became his lowest opening ever.
Still, with career sales of 40 million and a catalogue as classic as Kelly’s, fans will no doubt be served a feast comprised of iconic gems and newer numbers. Who knows, perhaps he’ll shift more units as a result?
For now, check out the initial batch of dates below. Tickets go on-sale Friday March 25th.
