*Usher will perform a free concert as part of events leading up to the Allstate Sugar Bowl next week in New Orleans.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports it’ll be the second time in a matter of weeks that Usher has made a public appearance in New Orleans. He was recently in the city to speak during Amnesty International USA’s one-day “Art For Rights” exhibit, where he talked about social activism.

Ursh kicks off the two-day Fan Fest leading up to the Sugar Bowl featuring Oklahoma State and Ole Miss. The two teams will meet inside the Superdome on Jan. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
