Usher - Usher Postpones European Tour To Focus On Sons And The Voice

R&B star Usher has postponed his upcoming European tour in order to concentrate on his children and mentoring commitments on the U.S. version of The Voice.

The Yeah! hitmaker was unveiled as a new judge, alongside Shakira, on the show last week (ends23Sep12) to replace Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera.

The news came after a turbulent few years for Usher in his personal life - following an ongoing custody battle with his ex-wife Tameka Foster, he was awarded primary care of their sons Usher V, four, and Naviyd, three, last month (Aug12).

In light of Usher's circumstances, it has now been announced that he is pushing back his upcoming Euphoria shows in Europe to next autumn (13).

A post on his website reads, "Due to professional and personal commitments Usher will have to reschedule his upcoming European tour dates.

"With the recently confirmed commitment to the Voice, to ensure that his fans world-wide are treated to the best possible concert experience, the entire tour will be rescheduled to fall (autumn) 2013 with dates in both North America and Europe scheduled to run concurrently at that time."

In an additional message from Usher, he reveals, "The feeling of euphoria that I get when performing for you is indescribable. I love each and every one of you and thank you for being there every step of the way.

"I truly appreciate and am grateful for your support while I take this time to focus on my children and continue to evolve with my fans. Evolve or evaporate. Love Usher."
