Lionel Richie promises "All the Hits All Night Long" on fall road trip
Iconic singer/songwriter Lionel Richie will hit at least 17 markets this fall on a North American tour dubbed "All the Hits All Night Long."
The five-time Grammy winner will follow up a sold-out European run with a North American round of dates that begins Sept. 18 in Hollywood, FL. The excursion focuses mostly on the eastern U.S. before wrapping up with two California shows: Oct. 17 in San Jose and Oct. 18 in Los Angeles. The itinerary features two early October Canadian stops and an Oct. 9 performance in Mexico City.
Richie will perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year's "Tuskegee." That platinum-selling collection features duets of his hits with a variety of artists, including Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Jimmy Buffett and Rascal Flatts, among others.
"I'm so lucky to have the collection of songs that I can play for my fans, it becomes a giant sing-along most nights," Richie said at his website. "People always ask me 'what are you going to sing tonight Lionel?' and I always laugh and reply, 'what are YOU going to sing tonight?'"
Richie is hard at work on a new studio album that will surface within the next year, according to his website.
