Hello! Lionel Richie announces European Tour!

This autumn, music legend Lionel Richie will return to our continent for his first European tour since 2009, almost 25 years since his first solo shows on his 1987 Outrageous Tour.

This extensive European tour will see him take to the stage in Austria, Belgium, France, Holland, Hungary, Monaco, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland and around the UK.

Lionel Richie will be promoting his new album Tuskegee on this tour, whilst also delving deep into his back catalogue, spanning a notable 30 year career, from the early days of the Commodores’, to the sweet serenades of his 80s piano ballads and to his more recent up-tempo pop song; music fans know that Lionel Richie always delivers a truly fantastic LIVE show and we cannot wait to be there!

Lionel Richie’s success is not easily to compete with, as his career has seen him sell more than 100 million albums, achieve 22 top 10’s, 5 Grammy awards, an Oscar for Best Original Score, a Golden Globe and many other well-deserved accolades, from nearly every major entertainment organisation.

It has been said that Richie’s music helped shape popular culture and is often quoted as the “soundtrack of a generation”, from all around the world. Fans tell us they have listened to Lionel’s songs to mark many milestone moments, from their first kiss, to their wedding dance.

Lionel Richie’s new album, Tuskegee is to be released on the 12th March and features 14 of his hit songs re-recorded and performed as duets. He is joined by such stars as Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers, Rascal Flatts, Pixie Lott and Willie Nelson.
