You can't keep Lionel Richie away from his UK fans.
Nobody expected such a roaring set from Lionel Richie at Glastonbury 2015, but, as usual, he had us at 'Hello' and now he's coming back for round two and bringing 'All The Hits' to London and Manchester next Summer. We are 'Truly' excited for this.
Get ready for 'All The Hits', UK!
Richie hit the road for the first time in more than a decade in 2013, taking his 'All the Hits All Night Long' tour across North America to much success. It was no wonder the crooner attracted such a crowd when he visited the UK this year, then, his tour culminating on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2015 with an audience of more than 100,000.
In fact, the set was such a triumph for the Grammy winning superstar that the subsequent re-release of his compilation album 'The Definitive Collection' - featuring both solo hits and music with The Commodores - went straight to number one again. It's unsurprising that he later added to his growing collection of accolades with GQ's Icon Award.
Now the UK are about to go crazy again because he's coming back for a limited run of shows in the Summer of 2016. June 28th will see him performing at Manchester Arena, and that will be followed by two shows at London's O2 Arena on July 2nd and 3rd. Richie will be expected to bring back some of his greatest singles, including 'Hello', 'Easy', 'Dancing on the Ceiling', 'Say You Say Me' and 'All Night Long'.
'It's been an unforgettable year and I can't wait to return to the UK to see my fans', Richie said in a statement. '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!'
Tickets for the shows will be on sale tomorrow (November 27th 2015).
