Usher is heading to Vegas! Are you ready…is that a “Yeah” we hear?
Global megastar and eight-time Grammy Award-winner Usher took to the stage with back-to-back sold-out shows on Friday, July 16 and Saturday, July 17 as he debuted his exclusive new Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. With one standing ovation after another, fans were brought to their feet to sing along, dance and celebrate the first new headlining residency show to open on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a year and a half. Spotted in the audience over opening weekend were several of Usher’s celebrity fans, including Jermaine Dupri, L.A. Reid, Nick Cannon, Lil Jon and Akon.
Custom-designed for The Colosseum at Caesars Palace stage, and promoted by Live Nation and Caesars Entertainment, the show gives audiences an extraordinary immersive experience with extravagant costumes, many of which were designed by Balmain, and state-of-the-art technology in lighting, video and special effects. The exclusive, only-in-Vegas spectacular is packed with an impressive repertoire of smash hits spanning the multi-talented showman’s 20-year career, including “U Remind Me,” “Burn,” “You Make Me Wanna…,” “Don’t Waste My Time,” “Scream” and “Yeah!” Supported by a live band and over two dozen dancers, Usher’s Las Vegas shows give fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see him up close and personal in an intimate 4,300-seat world-class performance venue, with a few surprises along the way.
Tickets for performances through January 2022 are on sale now, and a limited number of VIP meet & greet packages are also available for each show. All tickets and packages can be purchased online at www.ticketmaster.com/ushervegas or in-person at The Colosseum box office. All shows begin at 9 p.m
