Multi-platinum-selling artist, five-time Grammy winner and music icon Lionel Richie announced the extension of his worldwide “All The Hits All Night Long” tour to include a stop at Caesars Windsor on June 24. He was last here in 2013.
The tour has sold out across the globe in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the Middle East. Richie is expected to please fans with the hit-filled shows featuring songs from the Commodores and also his hits of today.
“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 in a press statement kicking off the tour. “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?'”
Richie’s last album Tuskegee reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 after its March 12, 2012 release. 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.
