Thousands of Usher fans gathered in Macao on Tuesday to see the R 'n' B superstar perform live at the Cotai arena in the Venetian Resort. Before coming to Macao, Usher made stops in Seoul, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Beijing.

Fresh from his debut concert in the Chinese mainland last week, now the American singer has moved on to rock another part of China -- the Macao Special Administrative Region.

In a press conference held before the concert, Usher described his music as having matured.

Usher said, "As a result of being thirty-one, my music's may be a little bit more mature, but there are those songs I think everybody can listen to throughout the entire album. You know nowadays, people, someone selects the song that they like and they make it their ringtone, they select a song as a single or whatever, for their computer, maybe. That's another way that my audience is able to be part of what I do. The way that I think cater to my younger fans is still my dance, one thing that everybody can do."
