While doing radio station rounds last week to promote her new album, Here I Am, Kelly Rowland revealed she would be going on tour with Chris Brown this fall. “I’m also going on tour with Chris Brown in September,” she told Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez. “I’m so excited about that…Getting ready for that show — literally getting ready. I’m sitting up here emailing and all that kind of stuff, finding people now.”
During a telephone interview with Neon Limelight today (August 3), Kelly was still kind of tight-lipped about what her stage show would look like as she’s still in the beginning stages of planning it.
“I’m getting all my thoughts and everything together today,” she told us. “I get inspiration from different visuals I might come across. It just really depends for me.”
But the “Motivation” songstress does have some idea of how her set will go — some sexy ideas. “I just want the show to be grown and sexy and exciting. Fun and charismatic. Just a lot of fun, above everything. But I want it to be empowering as well.”
Although the setlist is still under construction, Kelly says there’s a certain song from the new album she must perform. “One of my favorite songs off the new album I have to perform is ‘Keep It Between Us,’” she shared. “I can not WAIT to perform that live!”
The trek will be a road reunion of sorts for Rowland and Brown; he opened for Kelly’s former girl group, Destiny’s Child, on their final tour together in 2005 for a handful of dates when he was just starting out.
Asked what it’s like to see Brown’s growth from then to now, Kelly told us, “Chris is fantastic. Not only that, he is such an entertainer. I’m so excited for him, and it’s going to be really exciting, us touring together.”
Rowland says she expects to make the announcement with the tour dates by the end of next week.
