The 27-city trek begins in Montreal on Nov. 1 and continues to New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and Vancouver, eventually wrapping up in Tampa on Dec. 14.

"With the UR Experience I want to give my fans an ever-changing live show full of surprises and special guests," he said via press release. "I am really excited to be with my fans and give them an Usher experience like they've never seen or heard before."

Fresh off his Testimony Live tour, R&B newcomer August Alsina will serve as Usher's opening act, along with DJ Cassidy.
