City Slang: Kem heads out on the Bounce tour



Detroit’s Motown soul star Kem is heading out on the “Bounce TV Summer Music Festival” tour with the Isley Brothers and Maze featuring Frankie Beverly.

The tour kicked off tonight at the DTE Energy Music Theatre, and it will go on to hit eight other cities.

“Sometimes you have to stop and be in the moment enough to recognize that you’re working with such celebrated icons,” said KEM. “I’m in the moment now, and am excited and honored to be sharing the stage with some of our most treasured living legends in the music industry. Fans of current & classic R&B are sure to have a ball at these shows!”
