An itinerary has emerged for R. Kelly’s upcoming tour of the U.S., but the R&B bad boy is playing a few key details close to the chest. Dates and cities have been released for 36 stops on the Ladies Make Some Noise! Tour, but fans will have to wait a while longer before they find out which venues Kelly will be rocking.

Only four venues have been confirmed for the outing, which begins October 8 at MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, CT, and ends December 8 at an unannounced location in St. Louis, MO. The only are full revealed dates are set for October 10 at Palace Theatre in Albany, NY; October 15 at Prudential Hall in Newark, NJ; and October 16 at WaMu Theater in New York, NY.

Some of the other cities featured on Kelly’s calendar are Atlanta (October 22), Los Angeles (November 5), Chicago (November 17) and Miami (November 28). The first public onsales for the coast-to-coast romp begin August 22.

Kelly will be promoting his ninth solo album, “Untitled,” set to be released on October 13. The paradoxically titled record is a follow-up to May 2007’s “Double Up,” which dropped at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned the musician his fifth chart-topping album debut in the U.S.

“I’ve been in the biz 17 years, so everyone is used to me naming my records,” the singer and producer told MTV News back in June. “So I wanted to mix it up a little. I want whoever listens to the record to call it what they want, name it themselves based on what they feel listening to the music.”

Kelly made his solo debut in 1993 with “12 Play,” the first in a three-part album series that has since been followed by 2000’s “TP-2.com” and 2005’s “TP-3: Reloaded.” Of his eight released efforts, all have held peak chart positions within the top two slots on the Billboard 200. Kelly’s impressive streak continued with his two collaborations with Jay-Z, “Best of Both Worlds” and “Unfinished Business,” which grabbed No. 2 and No. 1 peaks, respectively.

The performer’s previous Double Up Tour in 2007-2008 hit arenas in more than 30 U.S. markets over a period of nine weeks. That trek, which featured support from the likes of Keyshia Cole and Ne-Yo, ran from November 2007 through early January 2008.
