At least this time he made an effort to perform.
We reported yesterday that for some unexplained reason, Usher had to cancel his Wednesday night concert in Berlin. This morning, we have the reason, as one of our Perezilicious readers was in the audience and dished us all the gossip from last night's concert, which he also cancelled.
According to our reader, Usher kept his fans waiting more than 40 minutes on Wednesday before his management announced that the singer wasn't "feeling well." Because the show was rescheduled for last night, no one made that big of a fuss. But our reader tells us that some eyewitnesses spotted Usher at bar several hours after canceling the show.
Then, last night's drama went down. Our reader reveals that when Usher finally made it to the stage, he put on not even half a show for his audience. He "sang" only five songs (from playback not live), which were interrupted by several 5-minute breaks during which Usher left the stage.
Then, Usher began to sing all "wrong and crooked," so he stopped all together to apologize for canceling the previous day. The audience wasn't interested in his excuses, as noted by the resounding booing that came from the venue as he spoke. Usher gave it one more shot to sing the song, but then gave up and went off the stage. The lights went on, the concert was over and no one explained why.
We've got a video from that last part of the evening (above) showing the state that Usher was in when he left his adoring fans. We'll admit it, he doesn't look so good, but whether that's illness or some other demon plaguing him, we can't say.
But we will say we hope he makes this up to his fans in Berlin somehow. He stood them up not once, but twice and we're sure tickets for his tour don't come cheap. So, reschedule another concert, bb, and maybe give your fans a real reason for why you left them hanging. They deserve that much.
