R.Kelly has been granted permission to leave his home state of Illinois to tour for the second time in three months, despite court-imposed conditions detaining him in the state.
Kelly, or R if you prefer, has been on bond since his arrest on child pornography allegations. Bond conditions ban him from leaving Illinois, but the court has ignored objections from a number of local prosecutors and permitted a handful of tour dates.
Kelly will perform in Houston, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Hampton. Dates in Texas and New York are planned, but are still subject to court approval. Wherever Kelly goes, he must return to Chicago by November 4th. He will appear in court again on December 1st.
Kelly has also contributed a new track to the forthcoming greatest hits collection from Michael Jackson.
