Lionel Richie is hitting the road this summer with the “All the Hits, All Night Long” tour with opening act CeeLo Green. The two acts are an unusual but fitting pair that bring a combination of hits from the past and present onto one exciting stage.
Lionel lives up to the name of the tour by playing a tremendous setlist of all of his hits, including “Running with the Night,” “Penny Lover,” “Stuck on You,” “Dancing on the Ceiling,” “Three Times A Lady,” “All Night Long,” “Easy,” and, of course, “Hello.”
CeeLo Green opens the show in spectacular fashion to give a theatrical and energetic performance. Expect to hear hits from his new solo albums as well as tunes from his days as Gnarles Barkley. His set list includes “We Are Family,” “Crazy,” “Don’tcha,” “Forget You,” “Nasty Girl” and more.
The ‘All the Hits, All Night Long’ tour kicks off in Las Vegas, NV and commences in Bethel, NY in August. The two iconic acts will make their way across the country and Canada.
