Usher is one of those names that when you see it, you automatically start saying it in one specific voice in your head (his being the start of 'Yeah') so prepare to have that stuck in your head for the rest of the day as Usher has announced two Irish dates for his upcoming tour.

The UR Experience, which we have no idea how to pronounce (U-R? Urrrr? Your?), is taking in dates around Europe, with residents of the Emerald Isle getting two chances to take it in. Usher will play Dublin's newly renamed 3Arena (the name of which still hurts) on Friday March 20th next year and Belfast's Odyssey Arena the following night Saturday March 21st, with tickets going on sale for Dublin this Friday and Belfast the following Friday.

Per the release:

'Packed with an impressive repertoire of smash hits spanning his 20-year career, the critically-acclaimed showman will give his fans a unique experience that only the multi-talented Usher can deliver. His show will include a fresh take on early and recent hit songs as well as some new music from his anticipated forthcoming eighth studio album.

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

Tickets for Dublin priced from €39.05 including booking fee will go on sale on Friday 3rd October at 9am, while tickets for the Belfast show priced from £38 including booking fee will go on sale on Friday 10th October at 9am.
