R. Kelly coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
Step aside, the Weeknd and Chris Brown, and let a real R&B bad boy show you how it's done.
Controversial yet chart-topping R&B superstar R. Kelly is coming back to Tampa, with a just-announced concert at Amalie Arena on May 27. Tickets to "The Buffet Tour" are $65 and up, and will go on sale Friday. Click here for details.
It's called "The Buffet Tour" because The Buffet is Kelly's 13th studio album, released in December. But he might as well be talking about his smorgasbord of booty-knocking slow-jam classics from the past 25 years, including Bump N' Grind, I Believe I Can Fly, Your Body's Callin', Trapped In the Closet and, of course, Ignition (Remix).
The last time he came to Tampa, in 2014, he reveled shamelessly in his utter freakitude, chomping a cigar, letting dancers gyrate all over him and generally being as R. Kelly as you could ever hope R. Kelly to be.
