R. Kelly is taking his “buffet” on tour.
“The Pied Piper of R&B” dropped The Buffet last December with features from heavy-hitters like Lil Wayne, Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign, Jeremih, Tinashe and Jhene Aiko. And now Kelly is ready to take the album on the road across the United States.
According to a press release, this concert will “be one of R. Kelly’s most entertaining shows to date.” And the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer can’t wait to share it with his fans.
“I’m extremely excited to head back on tour and see all of my amazing fans,” said R. Kelly via release. “‘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!”
The Buffet served as Kelly’s 13th solo studio album and includes the new cookout anthem, “Backyard Party” and the boisterous tune “Marching Band.”
According to Kelly, he wanted to include a little something for everyone on the album — hence the name The Buffet.
“I have fans from numerous generations listening to my music now and I wanted to provide everyone with something they could enjoy” read a statement from Kelly in a press release. “With The Buffet, I wanted to showcase a variety of my musical sounds and include all the genres I love on one project.”
