R. Kelly 

When: Sun., Nov. 25, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $49.50-$87.50
It’s incredible that R&B singer R. Kelley has successfully returned to touring and recording after all the bad press he received from a 2002 sex scandal. The guy was even brought up on child pornography charges in 2005. Somehow, he’s rebounded; he’s in town on the “Single Ladies Tour,” which, given his notorious past, should probably be retitled the “Single Ladies Beware Tour.” Still, Kelly’s last few studio albums represent fine returns to form. His soulful voice takes center stage on his latest effort, Write Me Back, which opens with the Barry White-like “Love Is,” an upbeat song bolstered by funky percussion and soaring strings. Songs such as the tasteful “Lady Sunday” evoke the soul music of yesteryear without coming off as derivative. Sex scandals notwithstanding, the guy’s still a major talent in the R&B world.
