It's just been announced that Usher will bring his "OMG Tour" to Time Warner Cable Arena on Saturday, April 30. His special guest will be fellow chart-topper Akon.

Usher, who's currently touring in Europe, has added a second North American leg to his tour, making stops in nearly 20 additional cities. After performing in Charlotte, the tour travels down I-77 to Colonial Life Arena in Columbia the following night. This is said to be Usher's first concert in Charlotte in more than six years.

After I watched Usher perform at the Grammys on Sunday, and Chris Brown on Saturday Night Live the night before, I was thinking how these two guys are leaps and bounds above any other artists in their genre--even beyond their genre. The two had fans everywhere swooning last year when they teased about the possibility of touring together, but that didn't come to fruition. It would've truly been a show for the ages. Sort of what it would've been like had Michael Jackson and Prince toured together in the early 1990s (but with fewer people fainting). Akon's certainly no slouch, though. Not many artists over the last five years have had more hits than him.

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 25 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. For more details, click here.
