Singer R Kelly announces UK tour
R Kelly is to play his first UK tour in eight years with a handful of dates later this year.
The shows, part of his Ladies Make Some Noise Tour, will see the Ignition star returning to venues which he first visited in the early 1990s, before he became a superstar.
Kelly will play Manchester Apollo (April 5), Hammersmith HMV Apollo (April 9) and Wolverhampton Civic Hall (April 11).
She's Got That Vibe star Kelly first played Hammersmith in 1992 as a virtual unknown, returning 18 months later as a huge star and also playing Wolverhampton.
As well as his international hits, Kelly has picked up a huge following for his musical soap Trapped In The Closet, with its tangled plots.
Kelly's new shows - his first in the UK since he was acquitted in 2008 of long-standing sex charges - will see him perform tracks from his new album Untitled.
Tickets go on sale on Friday January 22.
