R. Kelly
It's been a typically productive year for Windy City soul enigma Robert Sylvester Kelly, what with his Soula Coaster memoir and a new installment of his campy-catnip video series Trapped in the Closet. Expect plenty of old-school showmanship here, as Kelly plays a pair of local dates in support of his new LP, the stubbornly charming, retro-styled Write Me Back. Warning: The star's current jaunt is dubbed the Single Ladies Tour, so things could get even steamier than you're expecting.
