R. Kelly coming to the Amphitheatre in Ybor City




Here's how great things are going these days for Ybor City's dance-music mecca, The Amphitheatre, which is celebrating its one-year anniversary this weekend: They just booked R. Kelly.

The R&B superstar is scheduled to appear at the club on April 28. Kelly is being billed as "appearing live," so there's no guarantee he'll sing anything, much less the entirety of Trapped in the Closet. There's always the chance that he'll show up, pop a bottle or two, and lounge around in the VIP area, softly humming I Believe I Can Fly to himself.

But we'd bet dollars to donuts that Kelly won't be able to resist taking the mic at some point. And if he does ... wow. Talk about phenomenal opportunity to catch one of the biggest, most controversial R&B stars up close in a club setting. Stranger things have happened. Especially whenever R. Kelly's involved.

Tickets are $25-$35, and we would expect this event to be packed, so get 'em fast. Click here for details.
