R&B superstar Usher to perform a one-night-only special at Maraya

It’s worth making a trip to AlUla for the man who made Confessions.…

Maraya Hall has been a hot spot for concerts that feature the most prominent artists in the world since it opened. Legends like Andrea Bocelli, Lionel Richie, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, and Westlife, as well as OneRepublic and John Legend – who are performing this weekend – have earned a spot on that list.

And now, the king of R&B, Usher, has been announced as the latest star to perform at the Instagrammable Maraya Hall.

Taking place on Friday November 18, the one-night-only special will be the first time he will perform in AlUla. However, Usher is no stranger to Saudi Arabia, having first performed in Riyadh in 2019 as part of the Diriyah Music Festival.

Fans can look forward to an extraordinary immersive experience that only the multi-talented showman can deliver. His 90-minute set at Maraya will be packed with an impressive repertoire of smash hits spanning Usher’s more-than-25-year career, including his early records and more recent songs, as well as new music.

The Diamond-selling megastar, actor, and dancer has eight Grammy Awards to his name, was Billboard’s No. 1 Hot 100 Artist and No. 2 most successful artist of the 2000s, and according to the Recording Industry Association of America, is one of the best-selling artists in American music history.

After decades of success and being on top of the R&B game, his discography is filled with massive hits and fan favourites that include a wide range of love songs, club bangers, and dance tracks. Think ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love’, ‘OMG’, ‘U Got It Bad’, ‘U Remind Me’, ‘My Boo’, ‘Nice & Slow’, ‘You Make Me Wanna’, and many more.

Yeah! We definitely can’t wait to catch Usher busting out his hits and moves, of course.  Tickets for ‘Usher Live at Maraya’ are on sale now.

Usher Live at Maraya, Fri Nov 18, 8.30pm (Doors open at 6.30pm), Maraya Hall, AlUla. Book your tickets here. The early bird ticket price starts from SAR462. @alulamoments
