“This tour has literally been years in the making. Historically, my mixtapes have served as a creative outlet for me to serve my fans without the pressure of creating records solely for sales, so this is no ordinary tour. Every sound, every emotion that I ever expressed through my music you will get every single night. No one will leave this show untouched,” said Trey Songz. “I wanted someone fresh and with a different sound who is also a leader and force in their own right on this tour with me, and Big Sean was the immediate frontrunner. He adds personality that has never been seen before to the tour, so I am excited, to say the least.”
Big Sean added, “”Me and Trey are two people who came from different places with the same intention. To change the world and help lead a generation through entertainment. You’ll see the passion we put into our show every night, and that’s what will make us great”.

 

Trey is embarking on this tour in support of his critically acclaimed mixtape series, “ANTICIPATION” and “ANTICIPATION 2,” which have been collectively downloaded an astonishing 1 million times. This is all in the wake of Songz proclaiming November of 2011 Angels with Heart Month, his benefit show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and the release of his EP titled, “INEVITABLE.”

 

 About Trey Songz
Trey is unquestionably one of the most sought after entertainers in the industry. His music and movement characterize the collective voice and thoughts of his generation. He effortlessly displays vocal dexterity while relaying complex emotional depth and power. Though his repertoire of work, he has been able to differentiate himself from his peers, putting him in a class of his own.

 

Trey’s debut album, “I GOTTA MAKE IT,” was released in 2005, followed by “TREY DAY” in 2007 and “READY” in 2009. “PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE” was Trey’s follow up to the RIAA gold certified smash, “READY.” From the bouncy first single, “Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj)” to the chart-topping, record breaking #1 Hip Hop and R&B single, “Can’t Be Friends,” “PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE” was Certified Gold, with over 4 million album tracks sold. The success of “PASSION, PAIN & PLEASURE” laid the groundwork for Trey’s highly anticipated new CD “CHAPTER V.” CHAPTER V” saw the Virginia-based R&B superstar energized and evolving as he continued to refine his mastery of sultry, soulful song craft.

 

An assortment of major awards followed, including the prestigious title of “Best Male R&B Artist” at the 2010 BET Awards. That triumph capped an extraordinary year that included touring as both headliner and special guest on Jay-Z’s massive “BP3 Tour 2010,” numerous TV appearances, and star-studded recording sessions like Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones’ new version of “We Are The World,” benefiting Haitian earthquake relief organizations. All that and more was documented in Trey’s hugely popular docu-series, “My Moment.” An unqualified ratings sensation, the 10-part BET documentary provided an exclusive window into Trey’s life and career, chronicling everything up to and including the making of the new album.

 

About Big Sean
Big Sean met Kanye West after a radio interview in 2005 and got a chance to display his talent by freestyling for West. After months of submitting songs and numerous meetings, Sean finally got the call from Kanye West himself saying that he wanted to sign him. Big Sean officially signed to G.O.O.D Music in 2007 and Island Def Jam in 2008. Sean has three mixtapes under his belt, “Finally Famous – The Mixtape”, “UKNOWBIGSEAN – Finally Famous Vol. 2” and “Finally Famous Vol. 3: BIG”. Sean’s hit single “Getcha Some” vastly took over the internet and created major buzz for him and quickly solidified him as a breakout star. The single first debuted on Kanye West’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothin’ Mixtape”.

 

Big Sean released his debut album entitled “Finally Famous” in June of this year. The album features gold and platinum smashes as “My Last,” “Marvin & Chardonay” and the infectious “ASS.”  Soon after its release, Sean’s collaboration with Chris Brown, “My Last” and “Marvin & Chardonay” Feat. Kanye West reached number 1 on the Billboard Hip Hop charts. Currently, his new single, “Dance” with Nicki Minaj is blazing the charts.
