Lionel Richie's fall U.S. tour includes one stop in Florida
Admit it: You still jump to your feet when Lionel Richie's Dancing on the Ceiling comes on the radio. Richie was a hit machine in the '80s with 13 Top 10 tunes during our decade. Imagine how tough it would be for Lionel to squeeze them all into one concert performance. Well, prepare to see the master try that very thing.
Richie has just announced a fall tour of the United States and is promising to make each performance a night of hits.
"I’m so lucky to have the collection of songs that I can play for my fans, it becomes a giant sing-along most nights," Richie tells PollStar. "People always ask me, 'what are you going to sing tonight, Lionel?' and I always laugh and reply, 'What are YOU going to sing tonight?'."
Personally, I vote for Say You, Say Me from White Nights (it was buried in the closing credits), but in order to sing along, I'll have to travel to Hollywood, Fla., for his only stop in the Sunshine State. Here's the full list of dates from PollStar,
