Usher's OMG Tour at 1st Mariner Arena Dec. 8

usher!Pop star Usher announced his Fall 'OMG Tour' today. He'll kick it off in Seattle in November, and stop by Baltimore and Washington DC in December.

The 25-city tour will be at Baltimore's Mariner Arena on December 8, and DC's Verizon Center December 17.

The original lady killer will be promoting "Versus," an extension of his "Raymond v. Raymond" album. Hard to say how anticipated the tour is, but Jive Music, Usher's label, could afford to announce the tour with a brief "OMG" on twitter. No hashtags or anything. Gutsy move, Jive.

Tickets go on sale Sept. 17. For a preview, Usher will be performing at Sunday's VMA Awards on MTV.
