Usher is giving fans many reasons to rejoice. It was recently the 10-year anniversary of the hip hop icon’s “Confessions,” the album that all fans love most.  Last week he gave a much-tweeted-about performance of “She Came To Give It To Youalongside Nicki Minaj at his third MTV VMAs. And only a few days ago, he announced a tour to promote the coming album and drive the fans crazy. Today, we have the dates.

The “UR” Experience will kick off in November, a 27-date tour starting in Montreal, Quebec and ending in Tampa Bay, Florida on December 14th. Trey Songz opened for the two-decades-and-running superstar on his 2010-2011 tour – this time, August Alsina was asked to do the honors (27 honors, if you think about it).

Usher promoted his tour with a 30-second video, and also made a statement declaring he’s putting on a show with special guests and big surprises.  “I am really excited to be with my fans and give them an Usher experience like they’ve never seen or heard before.” It’s a tall order, considering that previous Usher “experiences” have never really let fans down.

Usher got his start with his second album (My Way) in 1997, which topped lists in the US. From there, 8701, Confessions, and Raymond v. Raymond helped to make him one of the best-selling American artists (according to the RIAA).  Even if his albums in their entirety didn’t do it for you, some of his singles (like “Love In This Club,” “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love,” “OMG,” and “Yeah!“) undeniably made history with their catchiness.
