Fact #108018


Short story:

R. Kelly plays at The Times-Union Center, Jacksonville, Flordia, USA.

Full article:

By the time this tour hit Jacksonville, - a trek for which he's billed himself as "Mr. Show Biz" for some reason - it was in full swing. "[They told me] to control myself tonight," Kelly told the sold-out house, adding that he was "instructed" not to cuss or touch himself "here," pointing at his nether regions. "I told 'em, 'I'm a grown-ass man. I can do whatever the f*** I feel like on this stage!'"

And that he did (after taking the stage, inexplicably, to the theme of Welcome Back Kotter). But even stripped down to strictly musical terms, Kelly's show was a mess - sprawling and ambitious, but lacking all direction. To maximize his hit output, Kelly, with a soulful and swinging live band, played only snippets of his songs (except for Trapped in the Closet, of course). That meant hopscotching from one chorus of Bump N' Grind to just a smidge of Step in the Name of Love and a few tokes of Sex Weed.
