Usher To Return To Vegas With Lil Wayne, Nas & More For ‘Lovers & Friends’ Festival

Usher will be returning to Las Vegas this spring for the 2024 Lovers & Friends festival, and he’ll be joined by the likes of Lil Wayne, Nas and more.

Going down for just one day on May 4 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, the lineup features an ambitious amount of acts including Ludacris, Nelly, Cam’ron, Jeezy, Snoop Dogg, Backstreet Boys and many, many more.


As the festival is all about nostalgia, Ursh will be performing his 2004 hit album Confessions during his set, while Weezy will be doing 2008’s Carter III.

Tickets will be available for pre-sale starting Friday (January 26) at 10 AM PT over on the festival’s website.

This won’t be Usher’s first time taking the stage at the annual festival. Last year came with some drama, however, as it was rumored that he and Chris Brown had a brawl the night before they both performed.

Breezy and his crew were accused of assaulting Usher at a roller rink party that Usher threw for Brown’s 34th birthday on (May 6. When reports of the alleged assault first surfaced, both Brown and Usher began trending on Twitter. And while the initial details of the alleged assault were murky, TMZ ultimately confirmed that an altercation did, indeed, take place between the two artists.


In the video posted by the outlet, both artists were at the Skate City roller rink in Las Vegas, NV, with their respective crews. When Brown started trying to talk to Teyana Taylor — who was there with Usher — Taylor turned her head and refused to chat him up. This rejection made the “Run It” singer super angry, and he began yelling at the actress and singer.

Usher then intervened, trying to diffuse the situation. And while the video doesn’t make clear what happened next, the “Let It Burn” singer reportedly came back a short time later with a bloody nose, prompting rumors that he’d been jumped by Chris Brown and his crew.

However, Usher posted a variety of videos on his Instagram story the next day before he took the stage and took fans behind the scenes to show how his set came altogether.

What was noticeable about the singer’s face is that it was visibly untouched, after it was reported that he suffered an array of injuries after the melee.


Chris Brown also took the stage and appeared to be in great spirits as well.
