Usher plans ladies-only tour

Only females will get to see the shows

Usher is planning a string of shows at intimate venues across the US, and apparently only women will be permitted entry.

The R&B star is working on a 15-date tour entitled the ‘One Night Stand’ tour, which will support his album ‘Here I Stand’.

“There’s only a few artists that can pull that off,” he told the Associated Press. “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?”

“The ladies like to see that masculine build,” he said. “They question if I still got it.”

Meanwhile, the singer will join Keith Urban and Natasha Bedingfield on Thursday (September 4) at Columbus Circle to kick off the forthcoming NFL season.

As previously reported, Usher, whose real name is Raymond Usher, revealed that performing at the event will hopefully give him a shot at the half-time slot at the Super Bowl next year.
