Usher Kicks Off OMG Tour in November
Usher is taking his platinum album 'Raymond v. Raymond' to the road this November. The OMG tour will kick off in Seattle, Washington on November 10 and cover 25 cities before it ends on December 18.
"Songs like 'OMG,' 'DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love,' 'There Goes My Baby,' 'Papers,' 'Daddy's Home,' 'Lil Freak,' with Nicki Minaj and 'Hot Tottie,' with Jay-Z have dominated the airwaves since last February," said Randy Phillips, president & CEO of AEG Live. "Now is the time for one of our greatest entertainers to go live and we are thrilled to be part of the ultimate Usher experience. Usher is bringing his fans an evening they will not soon forget."
Usher's tour -- which will not feature Chris Brown, as previously rumored -- will stop at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 18, and Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 13, and wrap up at the XL Center in Hartford CT, on December 18. "This well be the must-see concert of 2010!" added Phillips.
The R&B singer's sixth studio album 'Raymond v. Raymond,' has spawned several hit singles since it's March release, and his new nine-track LP 'Versus' premiered at No. 4 on the Billboard album chart last week. The album features eight new tracks, including the single 'DJ Got Us Fallin in Love.' 'Raymond V. Raymond (Deluxe Edition)' will be released later in the year, featuring all songs from 'Versus' and the original 'Raymond v. Raymond' album.
