The announcement promised shows in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
No further details were offered.
The singer is embroiled in renewed controversy in the wake of the recent Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which describes allegations of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia against the singer.
Kelly has consistently rejected the accusations, some of which date back to the past decades.
Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg told CNN on Wednesday that he "does not believe that's right" when he was asked about the referral announcement.
Since then it has been extended to protest against Kelly's shows and to call on various companies, including RCA Records, Spotify and Apple Music to stop doing business with the singer.
The singer has continued to book shows in recent months.
& # 39; If there is someone inside who feels that they will be offended tonight, they have to leave because it is about to become a freakier than a mother, & # 39; the newspaper reported the Grammy-winning artist during his show.
Kelly & # 39; s announcement of his new shows was both furious and supported.
"Hopefully Kelz will do a tour here in Chicago or the US, he has fans who know he is #survivingGroupieLies," tweeted a person.
