After a star-studded Super Bowl halftime performance, Usher announced on Monday that his upcoming tour will now make a stop in Houston.

Initially, the tour was coming to Dallas and Austin, but he announced his final tour stop would be in Houston on November 27 at the Toyota Center.

“Guess what? NEW CITIES ADDED to USHER: PAST PRESENT FUTURE,” Usher said on X, formerly known as Twitter. “I'm #COMINGHOME to the A-TOWN to kick it all off. Plus, 2 additional dates in Atlanta!”

Usher announced his tour on February 6 and pre-sale tickets went on sale the following day and ended February 11. Pre-sale tickets for the added dates will begin on Wednesday, February 14, and tickets will go on sale on Friday, February 16.

The tour is expected to visit 24 cities, including multiple stops in Atlanta, where he grew up. Originally born in Dallas, the multi-platinum Grammy winner will have three shows there and one in Houston. He will also perform two shows in Austin.

Usher wrapped up a two-year Las Vegas residency, "Usher: My Way,” at Dolby Live at Park MGM, before he announced his tour, and incorporated elements of the show in his half-time performance: roller skating, multiple wardrobe changes and acrobatics. Rappers Ludacris, Lil Jon and Jermaine Dupri accompanied him on stage, as well as R&B singer Alicia Keys and H.E.R.

"Don't take the moments for granted because you only get 13 of them," he said in advance of his 2024 performance, referring to the usually allotted 13-minute run time. "The hardest part is trying to figure out how to squeeze it all in when you actually have a large catalog, or a lot of records people celebrate and love."
