Don't count Ronald Isley out just yet even if he's dealt with a stroke, a bout with kidney cancer and a prison sentence for tax evasion in the past few years. Somehow, despite all this drama, Isley's also staged a late-career comeback, one owing largely to his partnership with R. Kelly and the creation of Isley's pimptastic alter-ego, Mr. Biggs. The pair's collaborations, particularly 2003's Body Kiss
, proved that Ron can sing Kelly's often-absurd lyrics and make them work; on "Lucky Charm," Mr. Biggs compares his lady to a bowl of cereal, while "What Would You Do?" allows ladies the opportunity to envision themselves as Mrs. Biggs. These songs are built on a fantasy of smooth grooves and endless sex appeal, but damned if it isn't a fun ride. This concert is billed as the Isley Brothers
, (although only Ron and guitarist Ernie remain of the original six), but expect Mr. Biggs to be holding court most of the night.
