Kelly announced upcoming stops for concerts overseas one month after the "Surviving R. Kelly" doc leveled a series of accusations against the R&B singer.
R. Kelly on Tuesday (Feb. 5) announced new tour dates despite the disturbing revelations made about the disgraced R&B star in Lifetime's recent six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly. "NEW TOUR ALERT," he wrote on Twitter, revealing plans to perform in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. No tour dates were released; he is also scheduled to perform in Germany in April.
The announcement comes weeks after Surviving R. Kelly aired, featuring Kelly's accusers and industry insiders detailing allegations against the singer that include physical, emotional and sexual abuse of women and underage girls.
In response to the show, which gave rise to the #MuteRKelly campaign, a number of artists and former collaborators spoke out against Kelly, with Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, Chance the Rapper, Jennifer Hudson and more either pulling their collaborations with Kelly from streaming services or expressing their regret for working with him.
