R Kelly Headed to the UK in 2011
The US Singer Embarks Across the Atlantic Following 2010’s Cancelled Tour
Last year R.Kelly was due to make the journey across the Atlantic for a European tour but was forced to cancel once doctors had advised him to rest his voice. Now it seems that the famous US R&B musician will be making another attempt with dates in the United Kingdom confirmed for April 2011. As the tour will be the first time that he has performed in the country in almost a decade there is no doubting that there will be plenty of folk hoping to get hold of concert tickets fast.
R Kelly, real name Robert Sylvester Kelly, is an internationally famous R&B singer whose best known song is perhaps the 90s hit “I Believe I Can Fly” from the movie “Space Jam”. However, his long career has provided a host of well known tracks that have appeared between his debut work in 1993 and his modern day output, from “Gotham City” and “The World’s Greatest” to “Bump N’ Grind” and “Back in the Closet”. His solo career followed a previous stint as part of the bad Public Announcement in 1992.
Kelly’s career has also seen him release an abundance of studio albums, beginning with “12 Play” in 1993. Then, across the decade he followed these up with “R Kelly” in 1995 and “R” in 1998, with the new millennium bringing the likes of “TP-2.com” in 2000, “Chocolate Factory” in 2003, “Double Up” in 2007 and “Love Letter” in 2010. There was also the famous story, made up of 22 chapters, which Kelly released in the last decade under the title “Trapped in the Closet”. It proved to be a highly-publicised project and was directed by Kelly himself between 2005 and 2007.
Tickets are due to go on sale for R Kelly’s latest shows on Friday 11th March 2011. The singer has so far confirmed two dates for the tour, meaning that he will take to the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, London on Friday 22nd April 2011, followed by the O2 Apollo, Manchester on Saturday 23rd April 2011.
