Although the Jay-Z/ R. Kelly Best of Both Worlds tour was officially announced last week, the itinerary has been slow in coming. However, Roc-A-Fella has posted some of the stops on its Web site and tickets for those dates are available.
When the duo announced the tour last week (see [article id="1490399"]"Jay-Z And R. Kelly To Tour Together This Fall"[/article]), only the opening and closing dates were revealed. The dates on Roc-A-Fella's Web site bear little correlation with the dates cited in Kelly's court documents last month (see [article id="1489361"]"R. Kelly Tour Dates Set"[/article]).
On Tuesday, Kelly released his latest solo album, the double set Happy People/ U Saved Me. The singer is scheduled to perform Friday night (August 27) in Miami as part of the invitation-only BMI Urban Awards. The Pied Piper of R&B is having a party in his honor Saturday night in MIA as well.
