R. Kelly Forced To Cut The Tour Dates For The Bad Sales Of Tickets In The Middle Of Sex Cult Fiasco
It's a Party After the Tour without a party?
Things are starting to look more bleak for R. Kelly, the Pied Piper of R&B, now that the precipitation of the last month's sex cult allegations are beginning to take a toll on their upcoming concerts.
Days after that R. Kelly video that has been uploaded to Twitter letting fans know that he "is going to come to the East Coast" for his Party After the Tour, it turns out that this is not the case.
TMZ reports that nearly half of the singer's upcoming tour dates have been cancelled. Of the 10 dates of the tour, four of them were fired on Monday (July 31).
Among the canceled shows are two in Louisiana, one in Dallas, and a show in Los Angeles. Low ticket sales are reportedly to blame for the cancellations.
Despite this latest blow to Kelly, sources say that the Angels ' cancellation was due to a scheduling conflict that involves another show. It is not clear if the L. A. show will be rescheduled.

News of the cancelled shows serves as the latest batch of drama to the surface, after, in July the launch of a Buzzfeed story accusing R. Kelly of the execution of a sex fueled by the worship and the "brain-washing" of young adult girls.
Kelz has since been referred to the worship of the allegations as a "bunch of crap".
