Usher, Kanye to Tour

Two of year's biggest-selling artists hit the road in August

By |
R&B crooner Usher and rap super-producer Kanye West are responsible for two of the biggest selling albums of 2004. Now the pair have decided to pool their popularity for this summer's The Truth tour, to launch August 5th in Hampton, Virginia.

Usher will be plugging his monstrous hit Confessions. The record has spent nine of its twelve weeks at Number One. The record slipped to Number Two this week, but its sales of 171,000 pushed Confessions past 4 million copies sold. Having produced hits for Jay-Z, Twista and numerous others, West has fared well with his debut, College Dropout. The record has sold more than 2 million copies and sits at Number Twelve on the album chart this week.

The tour is currently scheduled to run twenty-four dates wrapping up on October 7th in New York City.
