http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20100913007438/en Explosive 25-Date Trek Launches November 10th in Seattle, WA NEW YORK--(Business Wire)-- Multi-platinum recording artist Usher`s 25-date OMGTour is heating up with the addition of special guest Trey Songz, BET`s 2010 "Best Male R&B Artist" winner, as well as rising star hitmaker Miguel. Presented by AEG Live`s Concerts West and Atlanta Worldwide Touring, this highly anticipated tour kicks off November 10th at Seattle`s Key Arena, and will give fans an unforgettable night of hit-filled, R&B-infused pop. Tickets for select tour dates will be available for purchase beginning September 17th. For updated tour information and news, visit Usherworld.com and www.myspace.com/Usher. The OMG Tour comes hot on the heels of Usher`s current 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. Usher recently performed at the MTV 2010 Video Music Awards on September 12th. Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic recording artist Trey Songz has made the transition from rapidly rising young artist to bonafide R&B superstar. 2009`s RIAA gold-certified smash, Ready, was a true breakthrough that gave Trey his first-ever Billboard 200 Top Ten debut and received a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Contemporary R&B Album." The hugely anticipated September 14th release of Songz` Passion, Pain & Pleasure-with the bouncy first single "Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj)" and "the soulful "Can't Be Friends"-finds the Virginia-based R&B superstar energized and evolving as he continues to refine his mastery of sultry, soulful songcraft.
