Usher announces North America tour with Staples Center stop

Usher announces his first tour in three years

Usher is hitting the road this fall for his first tour in three years.

The multi-platinum Grammy winner is prepping an arena tour that will launch in the fall, Live Nation announced Tuesday.

Titled “The UR Experience,” the outing is scheduled to take Usher to 27 cities across North America. The tour is set to kick off in Montreal on Nov. 1 and stop at Staples Center on Nov. 21. The tour is scheduled to wrap up Dec. 14 in Tampa.

August Alsina and DJ Cassidy will support.

Usher was supposed to tour last year in support of 2012’s “Looking 4 Myself” but his Euphoria Tour was nixed when he booked a judging gig on “The Voice.”

The planned tour coincides with the 20thanniversary of his self-titled debut and his upcoming album.

“With The UR Experience, I want to give my fans an ever-changing live show full of surprises and special guests,” Usher said in a statement. “I am really excited to be with my fans and give them an Usher experience like they’ve never seen or heard before.”

Tickets for select dates go on sale Monday through Live Nation.
