Published April 22, 2011

By overwhelming popular demand, multi-platinum recording artist Usher has just added a second North American leg to his acclaimed “OMG Tour,” which arrives at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 1st.

Presented by AEG Live’s Concerts West and Atlanta Worldwide Touring, the concert will feature Usher’s signature brand of hit-filled R&B-infused pop as well as special guest superstar Akon.  The announcement comes hot on the heels of Usher’s triumphant appearance at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, where he scored two awards (Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best Contemporary R&B Album), and performed an electrifying version of his hit “OMG” alongside protégé Justin Bieber.

Fans can purchase tickets at all Ticketmaster locations, through Ticketmaster charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000, Ticketmaster Express at 866-448-7849 (automated only self service line) or online at Ticketmaster.com.  Tickets are subject to applicable service charges and event time and date are subject to change.  Log on to Usherworld.com for the most up to date concert and ticket on-sale information.

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.  For updated tour information and news, visit Usherworld.com and www.myspace.com/Usher.
