It’s time to Usher in the new year.
After a very good 2004 for the R&B singer, Usher will perform a live concert on Showtime on March 5. The show, “One Night, One Star: Usher Live,” will be a 90 min. live broadcast from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
“Usher is, without question, the biggest thing in the music business right now, and we’re thrilled he wanted to do his live concert with us,” said Robert Greenblatt, the cable network’s president of entertainment, in a statement released Friday.
Usher’s “Confessions,” featuring hits “Yeah!” and “Burn,” was the best selling album of 2004, moving 7.9 million copies. His tour raked in $29.1 million in North America, and he’s currently nominated for eight Grammys, including album of the year.
The concert will air Saturday, March 5 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) live on the east coast, tape delayed on the west coast.
Showtime, a premium cable network, is offering a free preview nationwide March 4-7.
