R. Kelly is taking his musical “Buffet” to the stage.
The R&B titan will launch a 40-city tour April 21 in Cincinnati and roll through his part-time home of Atlanta with a June 11 show at Philips Arena.
The tour is currently set to wrap June 19 in New Orleans.
A pre-sale for tickets begins at 10 a.m. March 23 (password is Buffet2016); general public sales begin at 10 a.m. March 25 through all Ticketmaster outlets, http://www.ticketmaster.com, the venue box office or by calling 1-800-745-3000.. Prices are $75-$125.
Kelly will be joined by a live band and dancers for the trek and, he said in a statement, the “(stage) production is crazy!”
Last May, we talked with Kelly before he performed at the Wolf Creek Amphitheatre Funk Fest; in December he released “The Buffet” album, which includes guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Tinashe and Juicy J, among others.
