R. Kelly Tickets

R Kelly tickets - R. Kelly Tour

Tour/Concert Schedule

R. Kelly is one of the most successful R&B artists of the last 25 years, and one of the best-selling musicians in the United States. With three Grammy Awards, six Billboard Awards, and six American Music Awards under his belt, and a prestigious position on the top of numerous "Best Of" lists from publications around the globe, R. Kelly proves time and time again that his combination of sultry vocals, sexy beats and sensual hooks are unparalleled.

R. Kelly is currently touring with music from his latest album, Black Panties, which is his 13th solo album. He will be burning up the stage in the biggest arenas and concert venues in the country, including stops in Texas, Louisiana, Michigan and Georgia. He's performed previously at arenas like the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles and at some of the hottest festivals on the circuit like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago.


Trivia

Not only has R. Kelly become an icon of the R&B genre, but he continues to reinvent himself. He has transformed himself into a producer, a writer, a rapper and even a DJ. He released his first ever mixtape in 2009 on the Gangsta Grillz label that was presented by DJ Skee and DJ Drama. He wanted fans to see him in a new light. His tactics worked. A whole new generation of fans began to emerge. He has also become a world traveler, performing for the first time in Johannesburg, South Afrcia in 2009. He also performed in London and Uganda that same year.


About the Artist

Robert Sylvester Kelly was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1967 to a single mother. His mother's faith played a big part in Kelly's upbringing. He sang for the first time in church when he was just eight-years-old. He had a rough childhood, which later gave him a plethora of material for his R&B albums. He attended Kenwood Academy in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, where he was introduced to teacher Lena McLin. The music teacher encouraged the aspiring singer to singe Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon in the Sky" for a school talent show. His schoolmates were flabbergasted by Kelly's talent, which inspired the youngster to begin performing on the street under the "L" train. Kelly teamed up with fellow student Marc McWiliams and formed his first group, MGM, which stood for Musically Gifted Men.

His first professional endeavor was with Public Announcement, a group he fronted that released a wildly successful debut album in 1992. R. Kelly quickly capitalized on his newfound fame and embarked on a solo career with the release of his album 12 Play in the fall of 1993. The first single "Bump N' Grind" broke records as it shot to the top of the Billboard Hot R&B Singles charts, where it held fast to the number one spot for 12 weeks. The record also spawned hits like "Your Body's Callin" and "Sex Me." Each one spent time at the top of the charts, cementing the young performer's status as a serious player in the R&B world.

Industry heavyweights took notice of R. Kelly's skills, and he soon became one of the most in-demand writers and producers on the scene. He worked with artists like Janet Jackson, Toni Braxton, and his own protégé Aaliyah throughout the early 1990s. The singles that spawned from his collaborative efforts all made appearances on the Billboard charts. R. Kelly was awarded his very first Grammy nominations in 1995 after writing, producing, and composing Michael Jackson's number one hit "You Are Not Alone." He utilized the success of the single by reinventing himself as an R&B icon. His song "I Believe I Can Fly" became an anthem for the 90s, and won three Grammy Awards in 1998. The song was also called one of the top 500 songs of all time by Rolling Stone magazine.

Since then, the artist has continued to collaborate with some of the biggest stars in the music business including Celine Dion, Jay-Z, Ludacris and most recently Bruno Mars and Pharrell. His music is timeless and his appeal seems to be endless. He's currently on tour, performing music from his latest album, Black Panties, which was released in 2013.


Breakthrough Performance

Many artists find it difficult to break into the music business. They struggle for years, touring relentlessly and hoping to catch the eye of a music producer or executive. But, for R. Kelly, success seemed to be his for the taking. After releasing a hit album with his group Public Announcement, Kelly released his first solo album. The album, that included the hit single "Bump N' Grind," put the singer on the map. His popularity skyrocketed and he has continued to release chart-topping solo albums and collaborative projects. There's nothing this talented singer can't do.


Fan Experience

R. Kelly has been performing on stage since he was an eight-year-old boy belting out hymns in his mother's church. But over the years he has come into his own, creating a sultry, electrifying live performance that is like nothing you've seen before. With as much swagger as he had when he first came on the scene, and with the addition of lights, special effects and an excellent backup band, Kelly puts on a memorable show that will have you dancing in your seat.
