R. Kelly is has people willing to see him concert, even after the Lifetime docuseries — just not in America … because, as of now, they’re only lining up for him in Germany.
Kelly is scheduled to perform in Ludwigsburg this coming April, and tickets are currently going for $115 and up. He’s even offering a meet and greet — yes, even now — which will cost fans about $355, if they’re so inclined.
TMZ reports the singer also just locked down shows in Hamburg and Oberhausen. The interesting thing is that these dates were booked after the airing of Surviving R. Kelly.
A rep for the venue in Ludwigsburg says the promoter is fully aware of what’s happening with Kelly in the States, and is monitoring to see how things unfold. The rep says, “You can be assured that we are carefully following the situation and, if necessary, will act accordingly.”
The rep’s clearly referring to the open investigation in Fulton County, GA and any potential criminal cases in Illinois.
Remember, Kelly’s American concerts were getting canceled left and right back in 2017 when BuzzFeed first posted a bombshell report about the alleged sex cult. The airing of ‘Surviving’ has turned up the heat and spiked public outrage against Kelly.
