2013 is rolling out to be quite the year for Kelly Rowland: not only does she have an upcoming album, but she’s also slated to sit behind the judging table for the upcoming season three of the X Factor, and hit the road on a joint promotional tour with The-Dream. But with her schedule piling up, one of these events had to suffer, and the "Lights Out" tour is the sacrifice.
Due to her judging duties, which began this week with auditions in Charleston S.C., some dates for the Lights Out tour have been rescheduled for a later time. The revised schedule has been whittled-down to these dates:
Washington, D.C. – May 26
Baltimore – May 28
New York City – May 30
Philadelphia on May 31
Mashantucket – June 2
Rowland will also appear at Caribbean Fashion Week in Kingston, Jamaica on June 8 and The Riverfest in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 25.
She broke the news on her Instagram to her “Rowland Stones:” “Although the tour had to be rescheduled because of ‘X Factor,’ I’m looking forward to bringing you guys a bigger and better show! I can’t wait to see each and every one of you guys on the road.”
However, The-Dream reassured the he’ll eventually hit the cities dropped from the schedule, and the two will hit the road at later dates yet to be announced. “We are looking forward to seeing everyone at a later date. But in support of IV Play, I will find the time to come to some of the cities left out to the best of my ability, if only to be in front of the fans that support us. So request this with your local radio stations and I’ll be there. I’m amped and ready!”
The X-Factor season 3 will premier in September 2013, while Talk A Good Game hits stores in less than a month on June 18.
