International superstar Lionel Richie will play a live date at Lincoln Showground this summer as part of his new UK tour.

The singer, famed for hits like Hello, All Night Long and Dancing on the Ceiling, plays Lincoln on June 10 as he explores parts of the county he’s never visited before.

Performing hits from his extensive repertoire spanning decades, all the way from the Commodores to the present day, Lionel Richie’s shows are world renowned.

Lionel said: “I’ve been missing the UK and can’t wait to make my return and to see parts of the country I’ve never made it out to before.

“The fans are always incredible and they make the atmosphere at every show electric, so I look forward to singing along with them soon.”

These will be Lionel’s first UK shows since receiving glittering reviews for the All The Hits tour which included three nights at London’s The O2.

The dates followed a phenomenal Glastonbury performance which drew the biggest crowd of the weekend as over 200,000 people flocked to the Pyramid Stage. Lionel’s incredible success continued as his album The Definitive Collection topped the charts and provided his first UK number one in 23 years.

Lionel went on to receive British GQ’s Icon Award, adding to a celebrated career which includes four Grammys, a Golden Globe and even an Oscar as well as the prestigious Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Award.
