R. Kelly’s First Post Jail Performance

R. Kelly’s career may seem like its coming to an end, but he recently performed in Springfield, Illinois. For $100 dollars, fans could come by the Dirty South Lounge, locally known as Mac’s Lounge, to see him perform. Hours before his first post jail performance, Kelly put a video on Instagram asking the media to take it easy on him because he needs to perform now to make money after the sexual abuse case.

Unfortunately the fans that showed up only got a 28 second show where he sang a line from one of his songs. After the show, R. Kelly spent around 35 minutes taking selfies and conversing with fans, but some said it wasn’t worth the $100 and that they wouldn’t be willing to pay again.

About 100 people were at the Dirty South Lounge in Springfield, IL.
