Lionel Richie, one of the most legendary and soulful singers of modern times, has been ensnaring the hearts and minds of fans across the world for more than 40 years. He is bringing his signature style and massive collection of hits to the Borgata Events Center in Atlantic City on September 21st.
Can’t Slow Down
As if being a member of The Commodores, one of the most successful Motown groups in history, wasn’t enough, Lionel Richie has continued to entertain the world for decades after he left the group in 1982. What followed was one of the most impressive streaks of hits that the music industry had ever seen, and he rocketed to international stardom with hits like “My Love”, “All Night Long”, “Dancing on the Ceiling”, and “Say You, Say Me”. His profound gift of lyricism made him one of the most in-demand songwriters of the 1980’s, and he penned hits for other stars while still releasing hit-packed albums almost every year. After a 5-year marathon of work and success, Richie took a hiatus, but was back a few years later with greatest hits albums and new material, ready to take back his throne at the top of the music business.
Despite being over 60 years old, Richie truly hasn’t slowed down, and regularly tours the globe in venues overflowing with tens of thousands of his adoring fans. He has won two Grammy Awards and the George and Ira Gershwin Lifetime Achievement Award. None of this is enough for the perennial performer and he still makes appearances in places like American Idol finales, Times Square New Years Eve concerts, and the Bonnaroo Music Festival. What’s even more exciting is that Richie has hinted that The Commodores would be getting back together in the near future to give their fans a long-awaited treat. Here is Richie performing one of his most iconic songs, “Hello” earlier this year.
The Best is Yet To Come
It’s clear that this consummate performer has plenty more in his tank, and there are so many hearts he has yet to intoxicate, so he is embarking on his first national tour in more than a decade, titled “All The Hits All Night Long”. It is coming to Atlantic City’s Borgata Events Center on September 21st, and promises to be an unforgettable evening of ballads and beautiful music from one of the music industry’s most talented performers. It will be a mixture of his classic songs, as well as some of his latest work, like the tracks from his most recent studio album, Tuskegee, which was released last year. It was his first album to reach the #1 spot on the Billboard charts for more than 25 years. He is truly back for more, and isn’t done yet!
