CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Social media is alive with outrage from fans following R. Kelly's late arrival to the Macy's Music Festival on Saturday night.

The R&B singer was scheduled to take the stage at Paul Brown Stadium at 11:40 p.m. on Saturday night. However, concertgoers say that Kelly did not appear on stage until just before 1:00 a.m.

Video from the previous night's performances was shown on the video board in the time between acts.

The day following the concert, the singer sent a tweet apologizing for the incident and blaming technical problems for the delay. 

Macy's Music Festival did acknowledge the incident on their Facebook page by stating:

"The Macy's Music Festival wants to thank everyone for supporting the most successful show in its 51 year history. Attendance was up over 50% and more than 70,000 concert goers enjoyed a spectacular weekend. 

Thank you for your continued support. The only blemish to the weekend was R Kelly's delayed performance. The show was held up by 50 minutes due to Mr Kelly's late arrival. 

We look forward to a successful 2014 on July 25 and 26 at Paul Brown Stadium!"

Aside from his late arrival, Kelly left the stage briefly during his performance following a dispute with photographers on stage.
