Usher recently wowed audiences when he “dropped in” for a surprise Super Bowl halftime performance alongside The Black Eyed Peas, and his recent “OMG Tour” performances have received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Daily Variety stated that “he is a consummate professional, showing full mastery of both voice and body.” Detroit News described the singer as “a born entertainer whose effortless moves on the stage never ceased to amaze,” while the Chicago Tribune raved that “turning the arena into his own house of Usher, the singer celebrated his R&B dominance of the last 15 years.”
The “OMG Tour” follows Usher’s pop chart smash, “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love,” from his recent release Versus, an extension of his platinum sixth studio album, Raymond V. Raymond. The record debuted at No.1 on the Pop and R&B albums charts, and spawned five hit singles including “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home),” “Lil Freak” featuring Nicki Minaj, “There Goes My Baby” and “OMG” featuring will.i.am.
