Just one month into his Usher: My Way the Vegas Residency, Usher has extended his Sin City stay into next spring. The string of shows that kicked off at Dolby Live at Park MGM on July 15 of this year, has tacked on 25 new dates slated to kick off on March 3, 2023 and run through a July 15, 2023 show. For the initial run of the residency, Usher was scheduled to perform through Oct. 29. Since the July opening, each of his shows have sold out, and the forthcoming 25 gigs remaining in 2022 are expected to sell out as well.
According to a release, Usher has sold out all the shows in the current residency to date and is on track to sell out all 25 of this year’s gigs. The show takes place on the custom-designed stage at the 5,200-seat Dolby Live and it spans the singer’s career, from “Love in This Club” and “OMG” to “You Make Me Wanna…” and “My Boo” and “U Remind Me.”
“Usher: My Way The Vegas Residency,” presented by Live Nation, features the eight-time Grammy Award winner performing before a 5,200 capacity crowd on a custom-built stage, running through his signature hits, including “My Boo,” “Yeah!,” “OMG,” “Burn” and “U Don’t Have to Call.” For the 2023 dates, Usher, Live Nation and MGM Resorts plan to donate $1 for each ticket sold to Usher’s charity program, New Look Inc.
If you can’t make it out West, you’ll have a chance to see Usher when he joins Metallica, Mariah Carey, Charlie Puth, the Jonas Brothers, Måneskin, Mickey Guyton, Rosalía and more for the Global Citizen Festival, set for Saturday, Sept. 24 with twin shows in New York City and Accra, Ghana; Usher’s set will take place at Ghana’s Black Star Square, where he will perform alongside SZA, Stormzy, Gyakie, H.E.R., Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Tems.
