R&B crooner R. Kelly had folks in Cincinnati upset after he showed up to his performance at the Macy’s Music Festival over one hour late.
Kelly was slated to begin performing at 11:40 p.m. but did not hit the stage until 1:00 a.m., reports a local Cincinnati newspaper.
The Macy’s Music Festival posted an explanation on their Facebook page, it reads:
The Macy’s Music Festival wants to thank everyone for supporting the most successful show in its 51 year history. Attendance was up over 50% and more than 70,000 concert goers enjoyed a spectacular weekend.
Thank you for your continued support. The only blemish to the weekend was R Kelly’s delayed performance. The show was held up by 50 minutes due to Mr Kelly’s late arrival.
R. Kelly blamed technical difficulties on his late start.
