Fans who have fantasized about catching the self-proclaimed "inventor of sex" up close and personal are in luck: Trey Songz is coming to a city near you, as he hits the road this summer for his Passion, Pain & Pleasure Tour. The nationwide tour — named for his upcoming album — kicks off on August 6 in Shreveport, Louisiana, and wraps up in New York City on September 17. Fellow soul star Monica will join the crooner on the road.
Songz's success has exploded since the release of his hit album Ready, which spawned burners like "Say Aah" and "Successful." Earlier this year, he rocked as an opening act on Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 Tour and even found time for Hov's homie President Obama, visiting the commander in chief at the White House, along with Jigga and Beyoncé.
More recently, the singer performed his own "MTV Unplugged" special, where he left the mostly female crowd squealing — a feat he managed again during his set at this month's Hot 97 Summer Jam concert in New Jersey. (According to the tour press release, Songz has also filmed a BET docu-series titled "My Moment.")
The "Successful" singer said concertgoers will not only be treated to intimate performances, but they'll also get to hear him debut new material. The tour "is not just another show; it will be an up close and personal experience for everyone," Songz said in a press release issued by his label, Atlantic. "Come see me perform your favorite songs live and hear new music from my upcoming album, Passion, Pain, & Pleasure, for the first time."
"Trey and I are dedicated to making sure that each night is an experience that is fulfilling to the heart and soul," Monica added in the release.
