Lionel Richie has announced plans for a huge UK tour.
The soul and R&B icon is enjoying a late career resurgence of sorts, with his famed Glastonbury slot seeming to open up his music to a new generation.
Returning to the UK this summer, Lionel Richie has announced a lengthy series of dates, including some often-neglected towns and cities.
Lionel says of his return: “I’ve been missing the UK and can’t wait to make my long awaited return and to see parts of the country I’ve never made it out to before. The fans are always incredible and they make the atmosphere at every show electric, so I look forward to singing along with them soon.”
Opening in Northampton on June 1st, the tour winds its way round the country, hitting Shrewsbury, Carlisle, Scarborough, and Chesterfield, before closing in Holkham.
