R. Kelly is ready to hit the road, and has announced dates for his 40-date “The Buffet” tour.
Kelly kicks off the 40-city U.S. trek at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio before hitting Detroit, Cleveland, Kansas City, and Chicago, among other cities. Finally, it’s set to close its curtains on June 11 at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
According to a press release, “The Buffet Tour” promises to “be one of R. Kelly’s most entertaining shows to date.” He will be joined by a live band and backup dancers while performing songs for the first time in-person.
“I’m extremely excited to head back on tour and see all of my amazing fans,” said R. Kelly. “‘The Buffet Tour’ is one you don’t want to miss, I’ve changed everything for this tour including the stage setup. Plus the production is crazy!”
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 25. Pre-sale tickets will be available on March 23 for fans who use a promo code found on Kelly’s social media accounts.
The tour, which follows 2015’s “Black Panties Tour,” comes in support of the Chicago crooner’s 13th solo LP The Buffet, which was released in December.
