The sex-fueled serenades of Bobby V, Pleasure P and J. Holiday have ranged from romantic to raunchy since the three R&B musicians began their rise to influential status. And now the soloists aim to woo audiences on their Kings of Love mini-tour, with both V and P having vocalized a desire to rekindle the public’s appetite for R&B. They’ll have plenty of help with that, as Asheville411 CEO Joe Greene accepted all of the regional hip-hop and R&B artists who submitted a video application to open for the veterans. “We were only going to choose three,” he says, “but we chose to let all nine of them get an opportunity to perform on the big stage.” The U.S. Cellular Center hosts the musical smorgasbord on Saturday, June 25, at 8 p.m. $30. uscellularcenterasheville.com.
