R Kelly says NZ and Australia tour announcement is 'fake'

US R&B singer R Kelly has called the announcement that he will be touring New Zealand and Australia in February 2019 "fake" throwing the concert into doubt.

The tour was announced by Big Music Tour yesterday, saying Kelly would be playing at Auckland's Trusts Arena on Friday February 15, 2019.

However, the singer took to Instagram today to say the tour is fake and will not be happening.

"FAKE TOUR ALERT While I love all my amazing Fans in the Australia region I am NOT involved in this tour nor do I have knowledge of it, it's promoters, etc. I will NOT be in Australia during these dates.

"Watch my social media...when it's time for my next international tour (which is soon) you'll hear it directly from me. Stay tuned for more King shit in the VERY near future!" Kelly's post reads.

Tickets for the show are due to go on sale Monday, December 17.
