Caesars Palace Confirms Usher Residency at Colosseum in 2021

It took a minute (about 11 months, actually) for our scoop to be confirmed, but Caesars Entertainment has officially announced an Usher residency in 2021.

While the realm of live entertainment remains in flux, Usher is slated to start a 12-show run at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace on July 16, 2021.

Fun fact: Usher’s godfather is Ben Vereen, the actor who now winces whenever he hears the name David Foster.

We can’t wait to have conversations like this when Usher begins his Las Vegas residency!

googie “What do you do at the Colosseum?”
googie “Usher.”
googie “You usher?”
googie “No, I just work there.”
googie “What’s your job?”
googie “Usher.”
googie “The residency?”
googie “No, I usher.”
googie “You’re an usher for Usher?”
googie “Yes, and this is my dog, a collie.”
googie “Where? Are you sure it’s a collie?”
googie “Collie. See him?”
googie “Could you say that again to make sure people get it?”
googie “Collie. See him?”
googie “Nice. Hungry?”
googie “I’m going to order a salad.”
googie “Don’t even think about it.”

Oh, how we will laugh.

The announcement of Usher’s residency at Caesars harkens back to a time when, you know, there were shows in Las Vegas.

Here’s the tentative schedule: July 16, 17, 21, 23, 24, 28, 30 and 31, also Dec. 28, 29 and 31 and Jan. 1, 2022.

Not to make everything about us, but we brought the boom about this residency in Oct. 2019.

Modesty precludes us from saying how modest we are.

The show will feature Usher’s hits as well as new music. You know, a Las Vegas residency.

Usher’s hits include “U Remind Me,” “Yeah!,” “Love In This Club,” “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” and others.

Tickets start at $59, or $10 less than we would’ve preferred because we are 12.

We’d better damn well have concerts by mid-2021, or else.

      Spread out over two distinct, different periods of time no less.

      I realize Vegas doesn’t have a better term, but they really need to come up with something that defines the fact that playing multiple dates during one visit to Vegas does not establish a residency.

    He’s a big deal, and it’s good news for the future of Vegas, but as usual I couldn’t be less excited about this.

    O-ver-ra-ted.

    Good to see more living-in-a-dream-world re live music in Vegas. A packed venue of 50 audience members per show… unless they intend to charge $25k a ticket, I’m having trouble comprehending how this is going to turn a profit.
