Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg, & The Jacksons Join BET Experience

BET Experience at L.A. Live

BET is turning the BET Awards into a weekend-long celebration of music. The three-day extravaganza (June 28-30) includes performances from Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg, The Jacksons, and more.

Beyoncé kicks off the inaugural “BET Experience at L.A. Live” when “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” comes to the Staples Center on Friday, June 28. Later in the evening, Erykah Badu will play an intimate show across the street at Club Nokia.

The following day, Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, and SchoolBoy Q will bring some West Coast flavor to Staples, while The Roots throw a late-night jam session at Club Nokia.

A cast of R&B veterans will round out Sunday’s bill with R. Kelly, New Edition, and The Jacksons headlining a show at Staples. Earlier in the day, gospel superstar Kirk Franklin will hold Sunday service with a show at Club Nokia.

The festivities will commence with the BET Awards ’13 on July 1, which this year move from the Shrine Auditorium to the Nokia Theatre.

Tickets for individual shows go on sale February 11 or you can purchase a package for the whole weekend starting at $1,000.

    @pop, I quess you have not heard how fantastic the Jacksons Unity tour has been. I guess you have not heard the roar of the crowd. I guess you have not heard how much people are enjoying seeing the Jacksons. I guess you have not heard about the excitement of seeing the brothers. And they did it without Mike or Janet. I loved the show soooooooooooooooooo much until I had to see it twice. The brothers are truly handling their business. Go Jacksons, Go Jacksons, Go Jacksons, Go Jacksons. You all are so beautiful. Keep up the excellent job.

    I’m just here for R. Kelly. I’m glad to see him getting to perform all over the place lately. With his live shows, you definitely get your money’s worth, and then some!

    Is the Nokia Theater bigger?

    I don’t like how they have the King of R&B R. Kelly in the line-up with those has-been boy groups. Shame on BET! They could’ve easily booked two other R&B artists who are in the same vain as R. Kelly’s music – Maxwell, D’Angelo, etc.

    @sddd, Shame on you for making such a comment. When you grew up with a certain group of entertainers that you have loved, seeing them perform against is great. When you move from this era and R Kelly is no longer performing then he decides to come back out, I guarantee you would be the first on line to see him. All who have loved the Jacksons and New Edition are very excited, thrilled, and very happy to see them perform again. You must be a very young person. I am not a fan of R Kelly. Because I am not a fan, does that give me the right to say bad things about him, ABSOLUTELY NOT. There is no need to do that. YOU NEED A HUG.

    The King Of R&B im glad to see him more and more and he gives a show and a performance that is unforgettable. Kells truly gives you a show and his voice live is very beautiful and I’m one of his biggest fans.

    I am glad to see that the KING OF R&B Kells is performing more and more now at award shows. It is good to see him back on the scene live and I love when it is a live performance because he truly entertains live and sings so great in person.

    R. Kelly..He is going to give everybody else a lesson on how to sing acapella!

    The Jacksons would be freaking awesome if Michael was alive but i honestly don’t see that much in that group now. However, it will be very fun to see these artists perform. I Like everyone of them :)
