Multi-platinum selling artist, Five-time Grammy winner, and icon of music, Lionel Richie announced his North American “All the Hits All Night Long” tour. On the heels of an electrifying sold-out European tour, Richie will kick off the hit-filled shows September 18 in Hollywood, FL and travel across North America to cities including Atlanta, Houston, NY, Chicago, Los Angeles and Mexico City stopping at legendary venues such LA’s famed Hollywood Bowl, Chicago’s United Center, the newly-minted Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and the historic Austin City Limits Festival.

“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,” said Lionel.  “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?”

 No stranger to touring, Lionel has played his timeless hits for fans all across the world – from Asia to Australia, Africa to the UK, Europe, Malaysia and UAE. He most recently announced a major headlining gig at the British Summer Time’s Summer Party on July 14, where he will be the finale of the 10-day extravaganza with a set of hits to a packed Hyde Park in London.

Already in the studio writing and recording new music, Richie plans to release a new original album within the next year.  His last album, Tuskegee, reached the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 after its March 12, 2012 release. The album, named for the city in Alabama where Lionel grew up, features duets of Lionel’s timeless hits with Jason Aldean, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Blake Shelton, Shania Twain and many others. Tuskegee was certified platinum on May 3, 2012 after selling one million units in the United States. Overall, Lionel has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.

  14. Lionel, Just wanted to thank you for your wonderful music. I just heard you on The Today show and truly enjoyed you. I have been ill for a few years and was hoping I would get a chance to see you before I passed over. I talked with the Dr. at my last appt. and asked her,”How much longer are these poor suckers gonna be stuck with me?” She said”Paulette, I expected you to be gone 2yrs ago.” So I said,”Are you saying I’m a couple years past my expiration date?” She cracked up and I said,”Well that explains all that mold around these fat rolls”.Anyway, I was hoping you would be coming near Rochester, NY but from what I see on my ‘puter the closest your coming is either Onterio or NYcity. Not sure which is closest. Anyway, Thank you for the wonderful years of joy and tears and love you have given me and my family. Let me know if you have a change in your concert series and decide to come to Rochester or Buffalo, ny. I would love to come to see you. Unfortunately I am in a wheelchair but at least I can still get around in that.
    Blessed Be Old Friend and thank you again.
    Paulette DeMauro

Australia wants you back, so please announce a few shows in Sydney where people like me continue to follow this journey we’re both on.

  39. Dear Mr.Ritchie,
    We met you a few years ago in the Phoenix International airport.You were coming from Cabo and we were coming from MAzatlan.While we were all waiting in line for customs,you were so gracious to me and my husband in talking about the modern music and the GOOD OLD music,that you were such a huge part of. You said that you were in the process of writing new songs and would be getting back in the saddle again. You are so fabulous and down to earth from the old Tuskeegee days to the present. I have been to every Lionel and Commodores concert possible that was in the area of Indianapolis and always right up front,so that I could sing along and always thought that I was the one who was once,twice,three times a lady.
    Please,please come back to good old Indianapolis so that we can be dancing on the ceiling!!!

  40. To see Lionel Richie is on the top of my bucket list. But Never comes to my area!!! WASHINGTON STATE!!!!!!!!

  41. I have been a die hard fan since the 80’s….I grew up listening to your music.
    You are on my bucket list! I would love it if you could extend your tour in
    Canada to Ottawa.
    I know you’ve been to Toronto and Montreal, but you always seem to miss us! We are right in the middle between the two and the capital of the country to boot!
    We love you in Canada….more dates, more dates please 🙂

    Thank you.


  42. Since I was a little girl I said I want to go see Lionel in concert more than anything else. I got my tickets this morning. I can officially die after the concert and I will be content.

  43. I saw you in Pittsburgh years ago with Tina Turner. I just looked at the tour dates and you’re not coming to Pittsburgh. If you’re not touring here, just come here after your tour is over for some down time. I’ll cook you dinner. 🙂

  44. Would you come back to San Antonio, Texas. I had seen you twice back in your early solo days. First time in Austin then a year or so later in San Antonio (your first time in SA). I would love to take my “lady” to hear you.

  45. Dear Lionel, My husband and I have been married 35 years, we absolutely LOVE you and all your songs and have watched you MANY times over the course of our marriage on interviews and etc. ..We JUST purchased platinum tickets for your show in Chicago 9/29/13 in 3rd row and are absolutely excited!!!. We are traveling from Des Moines, Iowa. If you could just PLEASE make sure to sing “Penny Lover” for us (well and everyone else who’ll be there) 🙂 That is “our” song and if my husband where good with words….those would be his lyrics.. Our marriage and our family has truly been blessed with ALL of the odds against us since we were VERY young teenagers when we married. Words cannot describe what it’s going to mean to us to actually get to see you!!!

  46. We noticed that you are appearing at the Borgata N.J. and Brooklyn N.Y.
    We are looking forward to seeing you in Boston Ma. or Manchester NH
    Please don’t disappoint us. You are just great.

  47. We have been married for 41 years and would love to see you but you are not coming close. We live in Michigan….Please let us know if you plan on coming to Detroit or near there. We are about one hour away. We learn to your music when we are driving in our motor home. Maybe we can see you after we retire in three years….Hope! Hope!!

  48. My dear Lionel,

    I dreamed about you last night.
    Thank you for being part of my dreams, brightening my life with your beautiful and romantic songs, making me feel three times a Brazilian lady.
    God bless you always.
    Can I keep dreaming about you?


    1. C’mon Lionel…you really need to make a Salt Lake City stop! You were going to come to Lake Tahoe last year (or the year before) and then cancelled. So getcha buns somewhere near SLC baby!!!

  49. HELLO!! Yes it’s us (Salt Lake City) you’re looking for. You will see it in our eyes. You will see it in our smile. If you’ll make a tour stop through here, we will make it worth your while.
    Don’t make me beg. Cuz I’ll do it!!!
