Usher has been sitting on the sidelines for a while now (it must have been really guilt-inducing to have to call yourself the person who discovered Justin Bieber), but he is so ready to make his return. He just performed “She Came to Give It To You” with “Anaconda”-ready Nicki Minaj at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, and he’s finishing up his next album, Everything You Can Imagine, due out this month. What’s next? A world tour, of course! Usher has just announced dates: he’ll start off in Montreal, QC at the Bell Centre on November 1 before heading to Toronto, ON; Detroit, MI; Cleveland, OH; New York, NY (at Madison Square Garden); Washington, DC; Philadelphia, PA; Boston, MA; Los Angeles, CA; Las Vegas, NV; Seattle, WA; and many more before finishing up in Tampa, FL at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on December 14. Tickets are either on sale Monday, September 8 or Monday, September 15, depending on your date. Visit Usher’s website for more information.

Rising to fame in the late 1990s with My Way, Usher has sold over 65 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists ever. He’s received a whopping eight Grammy Awards, and Billboard named Usher the No. 1 Hot 100 artist of the 2000s, and the No. 2 most successful artist of the same decade. Usher’s career boasts nine No. 1 hits, all as a lead artist, and 18 top-ten tunes.
