Usher Kicks Off 'Today' Show Summer Concert Series (See Full Line Up Here)

Usher will be the first artist to kick off this year's summer "Toyota Concert Series" on the Today show on May 18th (located at 49th St. and Rockefeller Plaza in NYC). 

This will be Usher's first time performing there. 

Also performing this summer is Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Maroon 5, Pitbull and Flo Rida. 

All concerts are Friday performances, unless otherwise noted. And you have to arrive early, really early since all concerts are free and open to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis.

See the full 2012 summer line up below:

The suggested time to arrive is 6 a.m. but don't even go to sleep that night, that's how early you have to get there to cop a good spot at one of these free shows. Trust me I know. I went one year to see Maxwell perform and was lucky to get a spot in the middle.
