Days before performing at the Super Bowl, one the most watched televised sporting events in the world, Usher is making another big confession: not only is the multiplatinum star hitting the road this year but he is the first artist to announce shows at the soon-to-be-opened Intuit Dome near Los Angeles.
Following a successful two-year residency in Las Vegas, Usher is embarking on the “Past Present Future Tour,” performing in arenas across North America including two nights at Intuit Dome in Inglewood — a state-of-the-art, nearly $2 billion arena that the Los Angeles Clippers will call home when it opens in August. The eight-time Grammy Award winner will kick off the Live Nation-produced 24-city tour at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. on Aug. 20 and includes stops at Boston’s TD Garden, Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Moody Center in Austin, Miami’s Kaseya Center and St. Louis’ Enterprise Center before wrapping up with two nights Chicago’s United Center on Oct. 28 and 29. According to the release, more dates across the globe will be announced later.
It’s going to be a big year for Usher, who, on top of performing at the Super Bowl and going on tour, will be releasing the ninth studio album, Coming Home, released Feb. 9.
