Push-ups and funky pirouettes.
That's how sexy R&B slow-jammer Usher is preppin' for his UR Experience tour, a 27-city sprint set to hump and bump through party towns like New York, Philly, Chi-Town, L.A., Vegas, Dallas, Nola, and ATL, before spending its penultimate night in the MIA.
This 2014 U.S. jaunt will hype his upcoming eighth studio album, UR, skedded for release in the next few months. Of course, in the meantime, y'all can always score a bottle of Mr. Raymond's UR perfume, pre-order tix, and practice the Usher glide.
Check the cut for the full UR Experience tour dates.
