    Default R. Kelly Targets ‘Single Ladies’

    R. Kelly Targets ‘Single Ladies’

    02:01 PM Tuesday 9/4/122 | 6 |

    The Grammy-winning superstar announces his “Single Ladies Tour,” a 20-plus city romp that includes special guest Tamia. The smooth-as-silk R&B singer will be playing theatres coast-to-coast beginning in South Carolina in mid-October.

    • R. Kelly

      BJCC Arena, Birmingham, Ala.

    During an interview with Associated Press, R. Kelly said his tour would be “one giant ‘Dating Game.’
    “We really want the single ladies up there, and where guys know there’s single ladies, they’re going to be in the mix, because they’re looking for a woman,” Kelly said.
    Kelly is also promising a return to the naughtiness that made him famous. Although his last two albums – the recent Write Me Back and 2010’s Love Letter – drew comparisons to Barry White and Marvin Gaye, the singer says the songs on his next album, Black Panties, will be somewhat reflective of the title.
    The “Single Ladies Tour” includes stops on both coasts as well as several shows in between. Here’s the schedule:
    Oct. 13 – Columbia, S.C., Township Auditorium
    Oct. 14 – Birmingham, Ala., BJCC Concert Hall
    Oct. 18 – Atlanta, Ga., Fox Theatre
    Oct. 21 – Miami, Fla., James L. Knight Center
    Oct. 23 – Memphis, Tenn., Orpheum Theatre
    Oct. 25 – Chicago, Ill., Arie Crown Theater At McCormick Place
    Oct. 31 – Oakland, Calif., Paramount Theatre
    Nov. 2 – Los Angeles, Calif., Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE
    Nov. 7 – Houston, Texas, Jones Hall For The Performing Arts
    Nov. 8 – Grand Prairie, Texas, Verizon Theatre At Grand Prairie
    Nov. 10 – Milwaukee, Wis., Milwaukee Theatre
    Nov. 11 – Cincinnati, Ohio, Aronoff Center For The Arts
    Nov. 14 – Louisville, Ky., The Louisville Palace Theatre
    Nov. 15 – St. Louis, Mo., Fabulous Fox Theatre
    Nov. 17 – Detroit, Mich., Fox Theatre
    Nov. 21 – New York, N.Y. Theater At Madison Square Garden
    Nov. 24 – Washington, D.C., DAR Constitution Hall
    Nov. 27 – Baltimore, M.D., Modell Performing Arts Center At The Lyric
    Nov. 29 – Upper Darby, Pa., Tower Theatre
    Dec. 2 – Columbia, Tenn., Veterans Memorial Building
    Dec. 6 – Cleveland, Ohio, State Theatre
    Dec. 7 – Merrillville, Ind., Star Plaza Theatre

    Tickets go on sale Sept. 7. Visit R-Kelly.com for more information.

    I hope the tour strictly focuses on WMB songs so it can support the album as it should.
    He can do some LL songs to spice it up. Going further back to old hits AGAIN, that's a no-no to me.
    Just because there gonna be a lot of female fans at each show, he don't need to be their jukebox.
    No need to feel the pressure to squeeze in Bump 'N Grind, 12 Play, Your Body's Callin, etc.

    I'll be attending the first show, so I'll let you know a little about the show. Tickets are selling fast here in South Carolina. Tyler Perry is in town on the same night, but you wouldn't think so. All of the GOOD seats are gone!!!!!!!!

    R. Kelly may be calling it the Single Ladies Tour, but the Chicago R&B stalwart promises to turn the venues he's playing into "one big, giant dating game" for both genders.


    "I want to have some fun with the single ladies," Kelly tells Billboard, explaining that the 22-date trek was inspired by "Feelin' Single," the second No. 1 Adult R&B Airplay from his latest album, "Write Me Back." "That (single) goes No. 1 and I said, 'Y'know what, I want to do a whole concept tour called the Single Ladies Tour and bring the single ladies out.' I know there's going to be couples in the audience, which is great. At the same time...I feel like wherever there's a single ladies party, there's gonna be a whole bunch of single guys, so we'll just call it one big dating game."

    Kelly says he has "a lot of different stuff I want to try on stage" and "a lot of exciting surprises for this tour," which begins Oct. 13 in Columbia, S.C. He's not giving those away yet, but he does guarantee that the repertoire will not restricted to the old school flavors, gentlemanly tenors of "Write Me Back" and its predecessor, "Love Letter." "Make no mistake about it; R. Kelly is gonna do old school R. Kelly. There'll be a lot of the '12 Play' version of R. Kelly, mixed with the gentleman R. Kelly." He also promises the tour will be documented on both audio and video. "We're working on that," Kelly says. "You've got to package a show like this. It's something you've got to put on the shelves."

    The Single Ladies Tour will also be Kelly's first prolonged road trip since he had emergency throat surgery in July of 2011 to drain an abscess in one of his tonsils. Kelly says that he's feeling "really good about my throat. I've been through a lot with it, but I feel real good now. I've been singing in the studio every night, hitting it real hard, and I feel good about it." Kelly is, in fact, working on his next album, the heavily sexual "Black Panties," while a third edition of his "Trapped in the Closet" series is expected to debut this fall.


    Meanwhile, Kelly can also be heard on joining fellow Chicagoan Kanye West on "To The World," the opening track on West's G.O.O.D. Music compilation "Cruel Summer." "Kanye sent me a track he was working on. I sent it back. He sent it back to me, I sent it back to him... until we had something," Kelly recalls. "It felt good to both of us. He trusts my talent and I trust his talent. I knew Kanye way before he was known. We've always had fun in the clubs or wherever we were, just kickin' it, but we never had a chance to get in the studio before and hook up like this, and I'm just glad we finally got that chance. I'm just very honored to be on this track working with him."




    R. Kelly Explains Why His Tour is 'One Big Dating Game' - The Juice | Billboard
    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.

    I am looking forward to this show even though it will be much of the standby medley mix. Glad to hear it will be packaged!

    I am going to the concert in L.A. on November 3rd. I purchased my ticket in the top price range ($125) and got "Row Z" in the "Main Floor/House Left Center". I am just disappointed that I did not purchase the tickets in the "Special Ladies Section" as if I did that, I would have gotten much better seats for the same exact price! That just kind of disappoints me. Otherwise, I am so very glad and can't wait for the concert... but the seat that I received for the same price as someone in row A bugs me out..
