R. Kelly made headlines at Weekend One of Coachella with a surprise performance, but it was another performance, or lack thereof, that had him making headlines after Weekend Two.
When The Postal Service frontman Ben Gibbard took the stage on Saturday night, he dropped a shocker on the crowd. “We were supposed to have a special guest last weekend, but then that guest took the stage with Phoenix instead,” Ben explained .”He was supposed to be here tonight, but didn’t show up again. That’s OK though. This song goes out to you, R Kelly,” the band leader added before going into his hit, “Such Great Heights.”
No one expected Kelly to take the stage with Phoenix during Weekend One, so we’re sure The Postal Service collab would have been even more surprising. One reason Kells may have blown the indie band off is because Phoenix was a headliner while The Postal Service was more of a mid-card act.
Regardless, Phoenix and The Pied Piper’s performance was a hit. The two did a mash up of the r&b singer’s hits, “Ignition (Remix)” and “Flirt”, which you can check out below.
UPDATE: A rep for Kelly tells HH that their client was never scheduled to appear with The Postal Service. “That’s not true.
He didn’t miss a performance … He performed as a surprise guest with Phoenix the first weekend. That’s all he was ever supposed to do and he did that.”
