International superstar Lionel Richie will return to the UK in 2016 performing at Manchester Arena and London’s The O2.
Performing ‘All The Hits’ from his extensive and much loved repertoire spanning decades, all the way from the Commodores to the present day. Lionel’s shows are world renowned for their party atmosphere and audiences will be able to join Lionel in singing along to classics such as ‘Hello’, ‘Easy’, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Say You Say Me’ and ‘All Night Long’.
Lionel said: “It’s been an unforgettable year and I can’t wait to return to the UK to see my fans. It’s always been a really special place for me and this year in particular the UK has been incredible to me. I’m excited to be getting out there and seeing some new faces and I’m sure some old ones too!”
The UK fell back in love with Lionel last year following a sellout tour that received glittering reviews and culminated in a phenomenal Glastonbury performance. After drawing the biggest crowd of the weekend with over 100,000 people flocking to the Pyramid Stage, Lionel’s album ‘The Definitive Collection’ reached Number 1 on the UK album charts for the first time in 23 years.
Lionel went on to receive British GQ’s Icon Award adding to a celebrated career, which includes four GRAMMYs, a Golden Globe and even an Oscar. Having sold over 100 million albums worldwide and Lionel shows no signs of slowing down.
