WINSTON-SALEM — The co-owner of a Winston-Salem nightclub said the business won't sponsor another celebrity appearance after customers complained about one involving R. Kelly.
Tickets to "An Intimate Birthday Celebration" with Kelly at Ziggy's nightclub sold for $35 to $55.
Customers said Kelly went on stage late Sunday night, smoking a cigar and drinking alcohol, and sang 15 seconds of his 1994 hit song "Bump 'N Grind." They said he sat down after making a few comments.
Ziggy's co-owner Charles Womack said the event was an appearance, not a concert. He said Ziggy's is looking for a way to make up with unsatisfied customers.
He said this was the first time and will be the last time Ziggy's will hold a celebrity appearance without a performance.
