Less than two weeks from now, Ne-Yo will release his fifth studio album, R.E.D., or Realizing Every Dream, on Nov. 6—Election Day. His reasoning behind the date: "Everyone will be out and about, doing important things, and since you going to be out anyway, you might as well pick up the album.” It's his first project with Motown Records after being appointed as the label's Senior Vice-President of A&R.

The LP features appearances from FabolousDiddyWiz KhalifaCalvin Harris and Tim McGraw, but before it drops, Complex met up with Ne-Yo at NYC's Roc the Mic studios to talk about his wildest moments on the road. If you didn't think dude was living the rock star lifestyle, you were mistaken. Here are Ne-Yo's craziest tour stories.
