Usher Could Announce a World Tour During Super Bowl Halftime Show
Not even a full week after his major announcement that he will be taking the stage at Halftime during the Super Bowl next year, Usher is now teasing fans that he could be going on a global tour following his performance. It would be the first time in nearly a decade since the singer’s last tour, which was The UR Experience Tour that ran from November 2014 to March 2015.
According to Billboard, the Burn singer could make the announcement in February during his Super Bowl LVIII performance. Sources close to Usher have said to a few media outlets that his team is reportedly “placing holds on arenas” across the globe and they will be spending the next few months finalizing any tour details.
This may not come as a surprise to many of us given the fact that the King of R&B has recently become the King of Las Vegas after his sold-out residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and Dolby Live at Park MGM. According to Vibe, the eight-time Grammy Award Winner has earned $83 million and sold an estimated 374,000 tickets. By the time his residency wraps up in December, it’s expected that his stay in Sin City will surpass $100 million in profit.
If the Confessions singer does make an announcement, it would be the first time any performer has done so in the last seven years. The last artist to set fans off with a surprise tour like this was Lady Gaga in 2017 when she headlined the Halftime Show during Super Bowl LI.
Ahead of his Halftime performance and alleged world tour, the Dallas native also told viewers during an interview with The Breakfast Club earlier this week, that he will also be releasing his ninth studio album, Coming Home, on Apple Music the same day. So, because we are all so “Caught Up” right now with the same man who says “Don’t leave your girl around me,” let’s do a recap of all the news Usher has brought us this week:
He’s next year’s Headline performer for the Super Bowl LVIII.
He’s debuting his ninth studio album on the same day as his Halftime performance.
He’s teasing us now with possibly announcing a global tour all on the same day of the Super Bowl.
Yeah, I think it’s safe to say that we all “got it bad.” So, if you don’t want to miss any of this don’t forget to mark your calendars for Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024, when the Super Bowl LVIII is set to air and stream live on CBS and Paramount+.
