LIVE: Usher brings his UR Experience tour to Washington DC

One thing you can say about Usher is that he definitely knows how to put on a show.  Monday night’s show at the Verizon Center was no exception.  The R&B star’s show started off with DJ Cassidy, one of NYC’s sought after DJ’s.  Cassidy equipped with a guitarist and keyboardist, played hit after hit from various musical genres.  Next up was the new kid on the scene,  August Alsina.  Once Alsina took the stage the screams hit a deafening decibel, which made Alsina smile in sheer delight. He went on to basically woo the panties off of all the ladies in the audience.  After a brief intermission, it was time for the main event–Usher.  Without giving too much away because the show is truly an UR Experience.  Usher skillfully pulled off the daunting task of weaving together his 20-year discography to satisfy both his older and younger fans; like a true entertainer he succeeded.

There’s still time to get the UR Experience for yourself.
