The ‘Confessions’ crooner recently announced additional dates of his residency, which is a celebration of his 20-year career.
Usher continues to stake his claim in Vegas as he does things “his way.” The eight-time Grammy Award-winner announced Monday that he is extending his residency, which is currently held at Dolby Live at Park MGM on the Las Vegas strip. “Usher: My Way The Vegas Residency” – named after the artist’s second album, which turned 25 last year – debuted in 2022 and has been a hit. Per the residency’s promoter, Live Nation, all dates sold out last year and is on track to sell out previously announced 2023 dates.
Fifteen new dates have been added to the residency’s docket, with the first show in the updated lineup taking place in June. The show is a celebration of the music legend’s 20-year career, which has featured a variety of musical stylings from R&B to dance pop. The set list includes renditions of Usher’s most popular works, as well as album B-sides, including “Confessions,” “Burn,” “Climax,” “U Don’t Have to Call,” “Love in this Club” and “Superstar.”
Karla Rodriguez of Complex remarked that the residency is “a sort of resurgence for [Usher] and a way to prove that two decades later, he’s still got it as a performer and a pop culture icon. ‘Confessions’ may be his most venerated album to date but he has since continued to provide and create hit after hit…and other albums that will also stand the test of time. All in all, the ‘My Way’ residency confirms that Usher’s reign is far from over.”

- June 2023: 16, 17, 20, 23, 24, 29
