R&B and balladeer legend Lionel Richie is set to drop a live album later this year and will hit the road for a round of tour dates across North America.
The trek will kick-off in Sugar Land, Texas on May 28, followed by gigs in cities like Toronto, Detroit, Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and Portland. He’ll make stops at legendary venues like Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, New York City’s Radio Music Hall, and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl before wrapping-up at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul on August 30.
Live From Las Vegas, which was recorded at Zappos Theater at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, includes performances of Richie’s best hits throughout his solo career, including “All Night Long,” “Say You, Say Me,” and “Dancing On The Ceiling,” as well as songs from his time with The Commodores like “Three Times a Lady” and “Easy.” The live album is set to drop on August 23. Throughout the run, Richie will perform all the hits from the record.
“I am so excited to bring my Live from Las Vegas album to life and to share it with my fans,” he said in a release. “Also, I’m really looking forward to going on tour and performing for everyone this summer – it’s going to be one big party.”
Throughout Richie’s career, he has sold over 90 million records and has been named one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, received four Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe award, the BET Lifetime Achievement, and the Kennedy Center Honors. In 2013, he launched his first tour in over a decade, and currently, Richie is a judge on the second revival season of American Idol.
