After nine weeks playing to near sell-out audiences in 43 cities, R. Kelly (a.k.a. Mr. Show Biz) rang down the curtain Sunday on his 2006 "Light It Up" Tour, performing in front of what the Sacramento Bee described as a "nearly delirious Mother's Day crowd" in Sacramento's Memorial Auditorium.
Preliminary figures indicate that Kelly sold out 37 performances on the tour, which began in Kansas City on March 9 and included stops in St. Louis, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, and Phoenix.
Featuring Kelly on stage for nearly two hours with a live band and three back-up singers in what The New York Times called a "hugely entertaining and totally unpredictable stroll through his career," the tour went off without a hitch.
"I want to thank my fans for supporting me with so much passion," Kelly said. "They're the reason I do what I do, and I love them all."
A true musical icon and winner of numerous Grammy, Billboard, Soul Train, and American Music awards, R. Kelly has sold well over 37 million albums worldwide since his first release some 15 years ago. He has co-directed all of his music videos since the classic "Down Low (Nobody Has to Know)" and was nominated for a 2005 Grammy for "Trapped in the Closet (Chapters 1-5)."
