Singer R. Kelly recently cancelled four shows from his ‘After Party’ tour. Controversy stemming from accusations of running a ‘sex cult’ seems to be having an affect on ticket sales. The 50 year old singer cancelled two shows in Louisiana, one in Dallas, and one in Los Angeles. Concert venues informed Kelly that he would be losing $400,000 with the current rate of ticket sales.
TMZ broke the news this past Monday.
Our sources say the 4 stops were nixed due to poor ticket sales, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. As we reported … his Friday night gig in Virginia was barely half full, and fans were pissed he only played for 45 minutes.
Still, sources close to Kelly tell TMZ the tour will absolutely go on, explaining the L.A. show was only canceled because of a scheduling conflict with another nearby stop. The sources would not comment about the other 3 terminated shows.
As of Monday, there are still a few dates left of the “After Party” tour that have tickets for sale.
