An ’80s Legend Returns
When Lionel Richie embarked on his All the Hits All Night Long Tour in 2013, Houston and Austin made the list, but Dallas did not. That oversight will be corrected when Richie comes to Gexa Energy Pavilion on July 11, 2014, as part of the summer 2014 leg of the tour.
The tour, which starts on May 29 in Vancouver, British Columbia, will hit 34 cities across North America, including return trips to Austin on July 10 and Houston on July 12. He'll be joined by CeeLo Green, best known for his song "F--- You" and his stint as mentor on The Voice.
As the tour name implies, fans can expect to hear songs from throughout Richie's 32-year solo career, with perhaps a visit or two to his days with The Commodores. Although Richie is best known for his work in the 1980s, like "All Night Long" and "Dancing on the Ceiling," he's continued to release albums every few years, including 2012's Tuskegee.
There will be a variety of ticket choices for the tour, including four different VIP options available exclusively through lionelrichie.com. Those options, which go on sale on Friday, February 14, at 10 am, include a meet-and-greet with Richie, front row tickets, food and drink, merchandise, and more.
Regular tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 28, but there are multiple pre-sale options, starting with Citi's Private Pass Program on February 14. Fans can also RSVP now on Facebook for a chance to participate in a pre-sale on Tuesday, February 18, and users of Live Nation's mobile app will have access to presale tickets beginning Thursday, February 20.
