R. Kelly to perform at 1st Mariner Arena

R. Kelly will perform in Baltimore this summer, it was announced today. The show will take place July 1 at 1st Mariner Arena

It'll be the first time the R&B singer performs in the city since 2009, when he played the Lyric Opera House. Then, 92Q regular Paula Campbell opened for him.

The concert is in support of "Love Letter," a soul-inspired album Kelly released in December. This time, Keyshia Cole will open for him.

Tickets, which start at $49.50, are on sale now on Ticketmaster. Kelly will also perform at Verizon Center the day after the Baltimore show. Tickets for that show start at $78, and go on sale May 6.
