Usher joined Afghan Whigs for “Climax” in Brooklyn (watch)
Usher & Afghan Whigs @ MHOW - 10/5/14 (via @foeweel)
Afghan Whigs put out their first new album in 16 years and reissued their classic Gentlemen this year, and brought their tour to NYC for two shows this past weekend. First they hit Beacon Theatre on Saturday (10/4) with Charles Bradley and then Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (10/5) with Joseph Arthur. Last night's show included two encores, the first of which saw Usher coming out to perform his excellent 2012 single "Climax" with the band, like they did at SXSW 2013.
Usher plays NYC again at the much larger MSG on 11/7.
