Making a grand and long-awaited return to the road, three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum R&B icon KEM will embark on 'THE FULL CIRCLE TOUR' this spring with 12-time GRAMMY® Award-winning legend Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds.

It promises to be KEM's biggest, most dynamic North American tour to date, and actress, comedian, author, EMMY® Award-winning host and television personality Sherri Shepherd joins as the evening's host.

"The Full Circle Tour" launches on March 30 at VSU Center in Petersburg, VA, and will captivate and entertain audiences as it rolls through arenas across the continent, concluding at Oakland Arena on May 15, 2022. The tour is in support of KEM'S upcoming FULL CIRCLE EP featuring the explosive single "STUCK ON YOU."
