R. Kelly Excited About Kicking Off His Summer Festival Performances

Photo by Randee St. NicholasIn case you haven't noticed, R. Kelly's name is popping up in the lineups of quite a few summer festivals.  For the first time, he'll headline a performance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, this June.  Also that month, he'll head to Los Angeles for the BET Experience Festival, followed by the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and the Macy’s Music Festival, both in July.

"Festivals always have so much energy and excitement, and I am thrilled to be playing so many this summer," R. Kelly says in a statement.  "I can't wait to perform for my wonderful fans, and introduce some new people to a real R. Kelly show."

The R recently wrapped up his sold-out Single Ladies tour in support of his latest album, Write Me Back.
