Are we really seeing a full on reemergence of contemporary R&B music? Hmmmz, it might seem as such.
One of the people who was responsible for keeping the genre flying high through the 1990’s and early 2000’s was the self proclaimed ‘Pied Piper of R&B‘ R. Kelly. Well folks, he’s still out there making music for the lovers and he wants all of you to hear it live.
He released his 12th studio album back in December entitled ‘The Buffet‘, and now he’s prepping to take the effort on the road. Starting April 21st in Cincinnati, ‘The Buffet Tour’ will be a 40-city trek around the United States. So far there have only been 25 cities announced, but he’s calling on YOU the fans to help him fill in the gap for where he should visit for the other 15.
According to Kelly, “I’m extremely excited to head back on tour and see all of my amazing fans,” R. Kelly said. “‘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 for the shows go on sale to the general public Friday, March 25 on Kellz’ official website, but if you’ve been checking his social media pages, you see that there’s a presale that started today, using the code BUFFET2016.
