NEWS

No stranger to superstar success, R. Kelly has seen a year filled with tremendous achievements including release of the critically acclaimed album, “Write Me Back,” a soulful memoir Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me, an extraordinary soundtrack producer role on Whitney  Houston’s final film Sparkle, and production of the next installment of his cultural phenomenon “Trapped In The Closet.”

On the heels of all of that, it’s not surprising this R&B icon announced a fall tour that will travel through more than 20 cities, including a stop at Landmark Theatre in Richmond Dec. 5 and Greensboro’s War Memorial Auditorium on Dec. 7. The Single Ladies Tour will feature R. Kelly hosting the ultimate girls (and guys) night out along with R&B singer songwriter Tamia as special guest to open the show.

Tickets are on sale now.

The groundbreaking Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, the number one tour in the world for two consecutive years, revealed its 2013 artist and city line-up, which includes stops at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte Jan. 5, Greensboro Coliseum Feb. 16 and Scope Arena Feb. 17. Founded and hosted by NewSong, the tour will be headlined by TobyMac and also will feature RED, Matthew West, Jamie Grace, Sidewalk Prophets and Royal Tailor. Admission is $10 at the door with no ticket required.
