(April 9, 2024 – Richmond, VA) – Three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated and multiplatinum R&B icon KEM has announced his return to Richmond’s Altria Theater on December 28, 2024.


Presale tickets will be available online-only with code ‘ALT24’ starting from 10:00AM to 10:00PM on Thursday, April 11. Tickets can be purchased at altriatheater.com or etix.com.


For all of his life, KEM has been driven by music and the emotions involved in bringing it to life. That passion stems from the days he spent as a child playing the old piano at his grandfather’s church.


Today, the internationally renowned R&B singer/songwriter has to his credit: one Platinum-selling album (KEM: ALBUM II); two Gold-selling albums (KEMISTRY; INTIMACY); three GRAMMY nominations; five #1 hit singles (“Love Calls,” “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Why Would You Stay,” “It’s You” and “Nobody”), along with several sold-out national tours and international shows.


KEM has garnered hundreds of millions of streams and has toured with the likes of RnB titan Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds and host Sherri Shepherd. He’s also been nominated for six NAACP Image Awards, two Soul Train Awards, and a BET Centric Award and he heads to Jazz Cafe for three iconic live performances. KEM remains one of the most vibrant and vital voices in 21st-century RnB.


Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 12, at 10:00AM. Tickets will be available online at altriatheater.com, by phone at (800) 514-3849 via Etix, or in-person at the Altria Theater Box Office, located at 6 N. Laurel Street, open Monday-Friday, 10AM-2PM local.
