Asked why he wanted to perform a “ladies only” tour, Usher said he relishes the challenge.
“There’s only a few artists that can pull that off,” said the 29-year-old singer. “I feel like I’ve had such a connection with my audience. This album, I felt like, was definitely the type of one that was more intimate. So what better way to get up close and personal than to make it all women?”
To go with the theme, Usher is also planning his own line of lingerie and men’s undergarments. He already has a fragrance and cologne.
Usher is currently working on a video for his new single Trading Places.
Hmm…interesting. I Can’t help but think that this ‘intimate venue’ slant that is being put on the show is simply a means of veiling the fact that many were not feeling his recent ‘Here I Stand’ LP, hence wouldn’t be flocking to his show in the larger venues as this once may have. Just a thought…
