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. For up-to-the-minute news and

Bystorm/Jive recording artist Miguel is a captivating singer, songwriter,
producer, and performer who fuses funk, hip-hop and electro to create a unique
sound that defies classification. Miguel first garnered attention for his
collaborations with Blu on the 2007 underground classic Below the Heavens. His
initial solo effort "Sure Thing" boasts over seven million Myspace plays and his
first official major label debut single, "All I Want Is You" featuring J.Cole,
is showing early signs of success with strong radio airplay on both the R&R
Rhythm and Billboard Urban Mainstream charts. Miguel has been featured on Asher
Roth`s debut album Asleep in the Bread Aisle; co-wrote "If U Leave," the #1
single from Musiq and Mary J. Blige and recently worked with Jimmy Jam, Terry
Lewis, and The Avila Brothers on Usher`s Raymond V Raymond album. His upcoming
debut album, also entitled All I Want Is You, is due out later this year. For
