The good news is that Usher has finally found love and is engaged to his live-in love, Grace Miguel.
The bad news is that apparently Grace is the only one who wants the ‘UR Experience’ these days.
According to several online and offline sources, Usher Raymond’s tour might possibly be his biggest flop ever.
According to Page 6:
Despite Usher being a judge on “The Voice,” ticket sales for his world tour, “The UR Experience,” have been lackluster. Music insiders tell us that most venues on the 27-city tour have been selling only a fraction of the available seats.
They estimate sales are so soft that promoter Live Nation may lose $5 million on the project. “Usher’s sales will be fine in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto, but he’s selling so badly in other markets that the good ones can’t offset the bad ones,” said one source.
One reason might be the lack of a strong opening act — August Alsina was to open, but recently collapsed during a performance and was hospitalized for a week. DJ Cassidy is also on the tour roster. Usher has also reportedly pushed back the release of his eighth album, “UR,” to next year. (It had been slated for this fall.)
The “UR Experience” kicks off in Quebec on Nov. 1 and ends in Tampa, Fla., on Dec. 14. Reps for Live Nation and Usher didn’ t get back to us.
Where are all those #TeamUsher stans when it’s time to buy tickets?
