R+B superstar USHER set Las Vegas, Nevada, alight at the weekend (11FEB06) when he chose to debut his new album at trendy nightclub Pure.

The Yeah?! singer thrilled fans who were partying at the club when he handed resident host, DJ REACH, a copy of his brand new CD - hot off the presses and asked the DJ to play it to revellers.

One of those getting a pre-release listen to Usher's new CD was Jessica Simpson, who was dining at Pure's restaurant.

Usher's Las Vegas weekend didn't end there - he also took time out to check out a late performance of LA REVE at Steve Wynn's new casino complex, Wynn Las Vegas.

The hitmakers was so taken with the late night revue he insisted on posing for pictures with the cast after the show.
