Lionel Richie at Motorpointarena 17/11/12

Recommended Posts

Lionel Richie returns to the stage this autumn with his first European tour dates since 2009, and nearly 25 years since his first solo shows took place.

His extensive European tour will see him return to Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Saturday 17th November. Tickets, priced £65, £50 & £40 (subject to booking fee) go on sale Monday 5th March at 9.30am.

 

Audiences are never disappointed with Richie’s exuberant live shows which deliver a mix material from a 30 plus year career from the memorable early days of the Commodores’, to the sweet serenades of his Eighties piano ballads and more recent up tempo pop material from the Noughties.

 

Richie’s career has seen him rack up sales of more than 100 million albums, 22 top 10’s, five Grammys, an Oscar for Best Original Score, a Golden Globe and a host of other awards from virtually every major entertainment organisation.

 

He has shaped popular culture as his music has served as the soundtrack of several generations around the world. His music has remained at the forefront of his fan’s milestone moments – first kiss, first wedding dance, first break up, first child. It’s impossible to separate those memories and his music because they are inextricably intertwined.

 

The Tuskegee Tour announcement coincides with the release of Tuskegee, his much anticipated new album that features the reworking of 14 of his international hits performed as duets such as Endless Love, Easy and Angel with renowned artists such as Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers and Willie Nelson as well as his pick of today’s contemporary scene in Little Big Town and Pixie Lott.

 

Please be aware tickets for this concert are souvenir and will be posted out at the begining of November.

 

Doors open 7pm concert will start at approximately 8pm.

 

Tickets go on sale 9.30am Monday 5th March.
